INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Rodney Stuckey scored 22 points, Roy Hibbert had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and the Indiana Pacers routed the New York Knicks 103-82 on Thursday night.
The struggling Pacers (17-31) picked up their most lopsided home victory of the season by winning for only the second time in 10 games.
Carmelo Anthony scored 18 points, 12 in the first 9 minutes for the Knicks (9-38). Lou Amundson added 17 as New York managed just 33 second-half points and fell behind Philadelphia for the worst record in the East.
Indiana turned the game midway through the second quarter, by rallying to take a 54-49 halftime lead.
The Pacers then opened the second half on a 10-2 run that extended the lead to double digits. Indiana pushed the margin to as much as 34, sealing the outcome.
