Prediction:

In this critical Game 5 matchup, we predict the Indiana Pacers will emerge victorious over the New York Knicks. Here's why:

Despite the Knicks' home-court advantage, the absence of key players like OG Anunoby, Mitchell Robinson, and Julius Randle significantly weakens their lineup. This creates an opportunity for the Pacers to capitalize on mismatches and exploit the Knicks' depleted roster.

With momentum from their convincing win in Game 4 and a deeper bench, the Pacers have the resilience and depth to overcome adversity on the road and secure a crucial victory.
