IN are 0-4 when Bogdanovic fails to make a 3-pointer and 8-1 when he hits at least three. He tested the ankle injury before the game, and the Knicks determined that he wasn't healthy enough to play. NY hosts Memphis on Wednesday night. IN are 0-4 when he commits three or more turnovers this year, and two of those instances have come in the last four games.

The contest was the opener of a six-game homestand for the Pacers, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

PG Frank Ntilikina and SF Courtney Lee vs SG Victor Oladipo - This is a projection if Hardaway isn't playing for the Knicks, but the hedge is that Lee will be paired off against a guard while the Knicks rotate Lance Thomas and Doug McDermott at small forward.

They've set themselves up nicely as the games continue to come thick and fast, so here are five keys to making this month feel a lot more like that 6-2 start the team jumped out to.

Notables: Enes Kanter posted another double-double with 18 points and 16 boards.

Beasley has not scored in double figures in his last seven games against in after doing so for the first 12 matchups.

Hardaway has already battled a variety of leg and foot injuries over the course of the season, although the Magic game was the first he'd missed all year. Oladipo made 3 of 5 3-pointers, finishing with 16.

The Knicks were warming up before the game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Damyean Dotson shooting on one side, Michael Beasley working on his game on the other. Tomorrow, New York squares off against the Pacers, while the Magic are back in aciton tomrow against the Charlotte Hornets.

As expected, Myles Turner is no longer listed on the injury report for the Indiana Pacers.

There are no betting lines established because of the uncertainty of the availability of Porzingis and Hardaway.

Al Iannazzone has been covering the Knicks and the National Basketball Association for Newsday since January 2012 after following the National Basketball Association for 11 years for The Record (N.J.).

Orlando has beaten the Knicks in both meetings this season.

It's hard to figure out the Knicks for this game, but one point coach Jeff Hornacek will hammer at his team is to be more aggressive and get to the basket. NY is 4-1 straight up and 4-1 ATS in five meetings since the start of last season.

The Knicks are a much different team without Kristaps Porzingis in the lineup as evidenced by the loss to the Magic at home.

Are the New York Knicks going to drop a second game in as many days tonight at the Indiana Pacers? Now on a back-to-back, this is a very tough spot but it's also a pretty sizeable spread against an IN team that is average at best. IN should pull away for a 110-97 win.
