The preseason escapade of the Indiana Pacers, which started off on a positive note after Wednesday’s drubbing of the Charlotte Hornets on the road, continues at the Big Apple, where the team is set to take on the New York Knicks for the first leg of a home-and-away series.

New York had a rather unflattering summer, but after acquiring a mini-breakout player in the last playoffs in Jalen Brunson, the Knicks should be a bit more potent than last season. Key holdovers Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, and Mitchell Robinson, who re-upped with them in the offseason, will once again be heavily featured for the Knickerbockers.

On the flip side, the Pacers’ encouraging start to the preseason could very well commence a winning streak, especially if the starting unit plays even better after being overshadowed by the bench’s prolific showing against Charlotte.

Pacers Injury Report

In an utmost rare occurrence, the Indiana Pacers had no one on the injury list against the Hornets. As things currently stand, expect that to carry over to the Big Apple. As for last game’s DNPs, expect Goga Bitadze and Daniel Theis to make their preseason debut.

Indiana Pacers vs New York Knicks Prediction

Like the Pacers, the Knicks, despite their unflattering offseason, similarly made quick work of their opponents in their preseason debut. However, while New York will trot out a relatively healthy squad, Indiana should be pretty capable of scoring another road win here to make it two in a row to start the preseason.
