Pacers nip Knicks on Andrew Nembhard’s late trey

knicks

Andrew Nembhard made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 17.8 seconds remaining to fuel the Indiana Pacers to a 111-106 victory over the New York Knicks on Friday in Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series in Indianapolis.

The Knicks still lead the best-of-seven series 2-1 heading into Game 4 on Sunday afternoon in Indianapolis.

New York’s Jalen Brunson sank a 3-pointer to forge a 106-106 tie before Nembhard drained a step-back 3-pointer from well behind the arc as the shot clock wound down. Nembhard was 1-for-7 from the floor prior to that basket.

Brunson’s subsequent bid to tie the contest fell short and Aaron Nesmith made a pair of free throws to seal the victory for the sixth-seeded Pacers, who overcame a 35-point performance from Donte DiVincenzo to win their ninth straight game at home.

Indiana’s Tyrese Haliburton scored 35 points on 14-of 26 shooting from the floor. He also had seven assists.

Pascal Siakam put up 26 points for the Pacers. Myles Turner added 21 points and 10 rebounds, including six on the offensive end.

DiVincenzo made seven 3-pointers and Brunson overcame a sluggish start to score 26 points despite being listed as questionable prior to the game due to a sore right foot. Alec Burks added 14 points off the bench and Josh Hart recorded 10 points and 18 rebounds.

Miles McBride drained a 3-pointer to stake New York to a 98-89 lead before Haliburton scored seven straight points as part of a 13-3 Indiana run. Siakam converted a three-point play and three free throws to give the Pacers a 102-101 advantage with 3:30 remaining in the fourth quarter.

In the third quarter, Haliburton sank a 3-pointer and Siakam did the same before adding a mid-range jumper to give the Pacers a 77-66 lead. New York halted the momentum with a 24-6 run, highlighted by a pair of 3-pointers and a three-point play from DiVincenzo. Hart went coast to coast for a layup to cap a 10-0 run by the Knicks.

Earlier on Friday, Indiana coach Rick Carlisle was fined $35,000 by the NBA for publicly criticizing the officiating and questioning the integrity of the league following Game 2.
