NEW YORK -- For the New York Knicks, it was about playing harder, even if not really much better. Darius Leonard Jersey . Saving their season would be more about effort than execution. "Tonight it was just one of them days where you just got to leave it out there on the basketball court," Carmelo Anthony said. Now they have to do it two more times. Anthony scored 28 points and the Knicks avoided elimination in the Eastern Conference semifinals with an 85-75 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 on Thursday night. Reserves J.R. Smith and Chris Copeland each had 13 points for the Knicks, who trail 3-2 and will need a victory Saturday in Indiana to force a seventh game back here Monday. They are trying to become the ninth NBA team to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series. "I was totally impressed because we met the challenge," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "I think as a coach you come into games like this and you want to see whos going to step up and make plays, and I thought we did that tonight. We were the better team in terms of doing that." Anthony, who didnt make a basket in the fourth quarter of either game in Indiana, made a jumper midway through the fourth quarter after Indiana closed within four points. He followed with two free throws, Raymond Felton made a layup, and the Knicks were never in jeopardy again. Paul George had 23 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Pacers. They played without point guard George Hill because of a concussion and committed 19 turnovers. "Weve just got to play more solid. Theres no other way to put it," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. George battled foul trouble and couldnt contain Anthony quite as well as he had while the Pacers easily won the previous two games. Anthony made his first two shots as New York raced to a 7-0 lead in a game it never trailed. He finished only 12 of 28, but got plenty of bench help. "We didnt shoot the ball very well but we made shots at the crucial time," Anthony said. David West had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who were trying to reach the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2004. "We didnt play well. It was a bad game for us and we were still there," George said. The winner will face the defending NBA champion Miami Heat in a series that will start Wednesday. New York didnt really shake its scoring slump, shooting only 41 per cent from the field, but put together a few runs during the game to open just enough space against a Pacers team that shot 36 per cent and was a dismal 19 of 33 at the free throw line. They clearly missed Hill after learning about four hours before the game they would be without him. Vogel said Hill was hurt after a collision with Knicks centre Tyson Chandler during the first half of Indianas 93-82 victory on Tuesday. Hill finished the game and scored 26 points, but experienced some headaches and showed concussion symptoms since and wasnt able to pass the leagues concussion tests so he could play Thursday night. The Knicks went back to their regular lineup, reinserting Pablo Prigioni, after going with a bigger group in Game 4 in a futile effort to match Indiana on the boards. The smaller group did a better job, getting outrebounded only 43-40. "Were not going to go out without fighting," Chandler said. The Knicks finally opened it up midway through the third quarter with a 12-4 run, started by Smiths bank shot and featuring a 3-pointer and follow shot from Copeland, who got more playing time while Woodson gave little to veterans Amare Stoudemire and the slumping Jason Kidd, who missed his only shot and remains scoreless in the series. "Coaching is a feel. Its not always what players want at the end of the day, its about winning," Woodson said. "Thats all Im in it for." Anthony made a jumper and a 3-pointer on his first two shots, and Iman Shumpert followed with another jumper for a 7-0 start. Smith got a big ovation when he checked in, which grew much louder when he made his first shot, dribbling back behind the arc for a 3-pointer that made it 17-12 with 2:56 left in the opening quarter. Smith has endured a miserable stretch since elbowing Bostons Jason Terry in the fourth quarter of Game 3 in the first round. Suspended for Game 4, he hasnt relocated his shot since, hitting 28 per cent in the first four games and has been criticized for not being focused after he was seen out a nightclub with singer Rihanna the night before Game 1 -- a day game. He was only 4 of 11, but hit the jumper that started the Knicks run in the third quarter. "Still didnt shoot the best but it always helps coming home and playing in front of these fans," Smith said. "Hopefully the little bit of rhythm that I did get carries me over." The Knicks extended their 19-15 lead after one to 32-23 on Copelands 3-pointer with 7:06 remaining in the second. The Pacers chipped away for most of the half but couldnt take the large in part because of their sloppy free throw shooting, going 8 of 16 in the half that agonizingly wouldnt end when both Chandler and the Pacers Sam Young committed fouls more than 30 feet from the basket in the final 2.4 seconds. Notes: Kidd is 0 for 8 in the series, part of a 0-for-17 skid that began with Game 3 against Boston in the first round. The 40-year-old point guard, surely headed for the Hall of Fame, is 3 of 25 in the post-season and hasnt scored since hitting a 3-pointer against the Celtics in Game 2 on April 23. He played 5 minutes and Stoudemire played 6 1/2. ... The Phoenix Suns are the last team to win a series after trailing 3-1, beating the Los Angeles Lakers in 2006. The Brooklyn Nets forced Chicago to a seventh game in the first round but dropped Game 7 on their home floor. ... West was 5 of 13 in the first half. The other four Indiana starters were 5 for 23.Pierre Desir Jersey . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. Adam Vinatieri Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. http://www.coltsfansshop.com/Colts-Anthony-Castonzo-Draft-Jersey/ . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- DeMarco Murray ran for 92 yards and a touchdown, and the Tennessee Titans held on to beat the Denver Broncos 13-10 Sunday and keep a piece of first place in the AFC South.With the win, the Titans (7-6) also climbed above .500 for the first time all season.The Titans came in with the NFLs third-best rushing offense and the AFCs top runner in Murray, and they ran right over a Denver defense that came in 28th in that category. By halftime, the Titans ran 26 times for 138 yards -- the second-most rushes by any team in the first half this season and most allowed in the first half by Denver since 2014.Tennessee then had to hold on as Trevor Siemian tried to rally Denver (8-5) after a sprained left foot that kept him out last week. He threw a 3-yard TD pass to Emmanuel Sanders with 9:58 left and drove the Broncos to first-and-goal at the Tennessee 7 before rookie Aaron Wallace sacked him.Coach Gary Kubiak settled for a 34-yard field goal by Brandon McManus on fourth-and-goal at the 16 with 4:28 left.Siemian was driving the Broncos again when A.J. Derby fumbled after a catch. Safety Daimion Stafford recovered with 53 seconds left, and the Titans finished off their biggest win in years.DROUGHT ENDEDSiemian threw for 334 yards and finally helped a team that leads the NFL in three-and-outs snap an 0-of-17 drought on third down conversions late in the third quarter. Siemian found Demaryius Thomas on third-and-14 late with a 15-yard pass.MARIOTAS DAYMarcus Mariota threw for only 88 yards in his worst game passing this season. He did become the first Titans quarterback with at least 3,000 yards passing in a season since Matt Hasselbeck in 2011. Margus Hunt Jersey. Mariota also ran eight times for 38 yards.FOURTH DOWN TRICKERYBroncos rookie punter Riley Dixon passed to Cody Lattimer on fourth-and-2 late in the third quarter for 14 yards. But the Titans forced the ball over on downs after Denver had first-and-goal at the 4 after Siemians big pass to Thomas. Titans rookie cornerback LeShaun Sims helped break up a pass on third down, and Siemian threw incomplete on fourth down at the start of the fourth quarter.OOPSDenver picked up running back Justin Forsett off waivers Monday to help a banged-up unit, and he got the first carry of the game on the Broncos second possession. Forsett picked up 9 yards before Titans safety Rashad Johnson poked the ball out with cornerback Jason McCourty recovering. Tennessee took a 10-0 lead when Ryan Succop kicked a 53-yard field goal.SCUFFLINGDenver cornerback Aqib Talib was flagged for unnecessary roughness after tangling with Titans wide receiver Harry Douglas on the Tennessee sideline late in the second quarter. Talib was angry at Douglas for his low block on Denver cornerback Chris Harris Jr. on the previous play that left Harris on the ground for a couple minutes. The penalty came during a 19-play, 74-yard drive by Tennessee that took 8:04 off the clock.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL.---Follow Teresa M.
