NEW YORK -- Relying on a last-second shot to get a win on the first night of a back-to-back is not necessarily the preference for the Indiana Pacers. Clearance Air Max 1 Canada Online .It still beats the alternative and now the Pacers will try to complete the back-to-back sweep Tuesday night when they visit the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.Indiana (15-14) is playing its 10th game in the last 15 days. The Pacers have won five of those games and four of their last six overall.On Monday, Indiana needed Thaddeus Youngs short jumper with 0.9 of a second remaining to get a 107-105 victory over the Washington Wizards. Youngs dramatic game-winner occurred after the Pacers held an eight-point lead with 4:05 remaining.We would have liked to come out and played a lot better, especially knowing we have a back-to-back on the road against a tough New York team, Indiana forward Paul George said. We would have like to take care of business, freshen our legs, but we got the win.George scored 27 points Monday and has reached 20 points in eight of his last 10 games while emerging into more of a leadership role.Its been different for me, he told Ive been used to having (more established teammates). They always had a level of play theyve always been at, so it was easy to feed off them.Now guys are feeding off me. I have to be the first one to step forth on that.George is averaging 21.8 points, slightly below last seasons career-best 23.8 average.The Pacers are 1-5 on the second night of back-to-backs and face a team they have won seven straight against.New York (14-13) returns home following a disappointing 2/3 Western Conference road trip. The trip began with wins over the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles but ended with a 127-114 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.Carmelo Anthony returned from resting his shoulder Thursday and scored 29 points while Brandon Jennings added 14 in place of Derrick Rose. Jennings has scored 53 points in four starts for Rose, who is expected to return from back spasms.Rose scored 25 points on 12-of-16 shooting in New Yorks win over the Lakers and exited after playing 10 minutes last Tuesday in Phoenix.Thats the plan, Rose told reporters after Mondays practice. I just want to put all these injuries behind me and get on with the season.I think its just a one-shot thing. Before I fell I wasnt worried about it. Things like this are going to happen. It comes with the season -- bumps and falls. I just got to find a way around it. I cant let it get to me mentally.Rose has been a catalyst for the Knicks with his ability to burst through the lane and facilitate. His absence has been clearly felt. The Knicks have lost three straight and have gone 1/3 in games Rose has missed.Rose is averaging 16.4 points on 45.6 percent shooting, four rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. It is his highest shooting percentage since he shot 48.9 percent in 78 games for the Chicago Bulls in 2009-10.Indianas last loss to New York was March 19, 2014. In the only meeting in New York last season on April 3, George scored 20 points in a 92-87 victory and averaged 22 points against the Knicks last season.Anthony is averaging 25 points and 6.7 rebounds in 30 games against the Pacers. He shot 5 of 20 in the first meeting and did not play in the other two meetings last season. Cheap Air Max 1 Canada For Sale . Kuznetsov, who was selected by the Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been playing for his hometown team Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL. Air Max 1 Canada Outlet . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. In a stunning twist, there is still hope Jamie Whincup could be crowned 2016 Bathurst 1000 champion after his Supercars team finally lodged an official appeal over the controversial Great Race finish.Governing body Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) has refused to rule out any possible outcome at Whincups hearing in Melbourne on Tuesday night when the Holden star will appeal a time penalty that cost him a fifth Bathurst 1000 win.Contrary to media reports, the result of the Bathurst 1000 is still subject to the courts final determination, a CAMS statement said.The court has the power to impose its own penalty which may or may not include time penalties.The drama began when Whincup crossed the line first in Sundays Great Race, only to be relegated to 11th after copping a 15 second time penalty for his role in a late incident that ended the winning chances of Volvos Scott McLaughlin and Holdens Garth Tander.Holdens Will Davison received the winners Peter Brock Trophy last weekend and looked set to hold onto it after Red Bull Racing suffered a setback on Friday.An interim ruling by the National Court of Appeal knocked back RBRs request to amend their appeal in a bid to have the charge dropped or the incident re-investigated.As a result, RBR can now only appeal the severity of Whincups time penalty at Tuesday nights hearing at the County Court of Victoria.A Supercars statement said at best, Whincups punishment could be cut to a 10-second penalty, earning him eighth place in the Great Race and 338 extra championship points. Wholesale Air Max Canada. .That would have ensured no change to the Bathurst podium.However, CAMS have not ruled out any possible outcome including Whincup being installed as a belated Bathurst winner after RBR officially lodged their appeal by the 1755 AEDT Friday deadline, after receiving a 24 hour extension from the governing body.It is believed if RBR have the punishment successfully downgraded to a 10 second time penalty they can argue that Whincup redressed his race position behind McLaughlin before the spectacular lap 150 incident that cost the Volvo driver and Tander.If they can prove that, Whincups penalty will be served and he will receive the Bathurst 1000 crown.Supercars boss James Warburton said he preferred the Bathurst 1000 winner be decided on a race track, not a court room.Supercars Australia respects the right of all teams to appeal the decisions of stewards, he said.However, it also recognises the groundswell of opinion from teams, drivers and fans who have expressed a strong desire to see one of Australias biggest sporting events decided on the racetrack and not in a court room.Either way, Whincups fate is not expected to be known until early next month.A verdict may not be handed down until 14 days after the appeal is heard - in this case as late as November 2.If unsuccessful, RBR can appeal through the FIA International Court of Appeal.
