Play of the Day for Mon., March 17, 2008

New York Knicks +7 at Indiana Pacers: The Pacers are 2-0 against the Knickerbockers this season with a 27-point shellacking at MSG in the first meeting and a three-point win in their last meeting at Conseco Fieldhouse. Despite its 27-41 record, Indiana is still just three games back of the Nets for the final playoff spot in the East and should get up early on an apathetic NY squad which is just 2-8 in its last 10 and a woeful 7-25 on the road. And why not back a guy named Michael Dunleavy (18.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg) on St. Patrick’s Day? PACERS -7.
