The Coach's Saturday Night SMACKDOWN!
(NBA) Indiana vs. New York, 03/07/2015 2:30 PM, Score: 92 - 86
Point Spread: 8.50 | -105.00 New York (Home)
Result: Win
The New York Knickerbockers lost by a score of 105-82 at Indiana on Wednesday, and they will host the Pacers in a rematch at MSG tonight. The Pacers defeated Chicago last night, and might struggled to cover such a big number while playing their second game in as many nights.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Home Cookin' - The Knicks haven't just covered the spread in three of their last four home meetings with Indiana, they've won those three games outright. The Home team has covered in 13 of the last 16 in this series.

2. Fatigue - The Pacers are coming off a win at home last night, and they've lost three straight when playing the second game of a back-to-back.

3. X-Factor - Andrea Bargnani scored a season high 25 points against the Pacers on Wednesday, and he's averaged 18 points on 50.9% shooting in four games since moving to a starter's role.

Selection: This is a play on the New York Knicks (8*)
