Predictions and odds for Game 5

Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton (0) holds the ball while New York Knicks guard Donte DiVincenzo (0) defends during game four of the second round for the 2024 NBA playoffs at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

A pair of pivotal Game 5’s grace our screens tonight, and on the Eastern Conference side, it’s between the No. 2 New York Knicks and the surprise team of the playoffs so far, the No. 6 Indiana Pacers.

After falling behind in the series 0-2, the Indiana Pacers appeared dead in the water heading back to Indianapolis. However, a pair of big wins at home, including a 121-89 thrashing in Game 4 breathed new life into the team and the fanbase. Now, NBA fans are wondering if the Knicks have what it takes to beat the Pacers at all, even heading back to their home court.

Of course, the Knicks know what it takes to win. They were the No. 2 seed in the East for a reason. However, if Jalen Brunson gets held under 20 points again, like he did in Game 4, it will be very difficult for the Knicks to go to the Eastern Conference Finals.
