The Indiana Pacers have to come out of the All-Star break at full throttle when they host the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

The Pacers remain in third place in the East, 1.5 games behind the Knicks with a group of teams in close pursuit. The Brooklyn Nets took advantage of a pair of big shots from Joe Johnson, a three in regulation to send it to overtime and a buzzer beater in OT for the W, to beat the Milwaukee Bucks and draw within a half game of the Pacers. Since the Nets are one team that has the tie breaker over the Pacers, they are essentially tied heading into tonight's action.
