Alec Burks returned to New York as part of a deal with Bojan Bogdanovic from the Detroit Pistons before Thursday’s trade deadline. Burks, who was with the Knicks from 2020-22, scored 22 points and Bogdanovic scored all 11 of his points in the first half of his New York debut.
Precious Achiuwa scored 15 points and Donte DiVincenzo 14 for the Knicks, who have lost three of four following a season-high nine-game winning streak. New York is playing without starters Julius Randle and OG Anunoby, and the center tandem of Mitchell Robinson and Isaiah Hartenstein.
Neither team was able to extend a lead beyond five points in a tight first half. The Knicks led by a point at 51-50 when the Pacers went on a six-point run to take a lead they never relinquished.
Indiana led 61-58 at the break and extended its lead to nine points at 79-70 on a 3-pointer by Obi Toppin with 4:36 left in the third quarter.
The Knicks closed within six before Haliburton hit a long 3-pointer just before the buzzer that gave the Pacers a 91-82 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
Toppin opened the final quarter with a 3-pointer and the Knicks were never able to get within single digits the rest of the way.
Jackson’s three-point play extended Indiana’s lead to a game-high 22 points, 114-92, with 5:40 remaining.
Pacers: At Charlotte on Monday.
Knicks: At Houston on Monday.
