Roy Hibbert played an enormous role. He was a force on both ends of the court, and the Knicks simply had no answers for him. Kenyon Martin tried to "pull the chair" but was left completely helpless as Hibbert dunked all over him.
Hibbert also totally locked down the paint for Indiana. This play was absolutely huge late in the game. Carmelo Anthony went up for a dunk to give the Knicks a 4-point lead, but he got his shot swatted right back in his face.
Carmelo got his fair share of points, though. He dropped 39, but it just wasn't enough to force a Game 7.
Iman Shumpert exploded for 16 points on 5-of-6 from downtown.
But New York just couldn't overcome the devastating and unstoppable force that is Lance Stephenson.
Although it probably didn't help the Knicks that JR Smith was tying his shoes during the fourth quarter instead of going after a loose ball...
