Pacers put Knicks on the brink

Pablo Prigioni could return to the starting lineup. Jason Kidd will remain in the rotation.

Whichever players are on the court for the New York Knicks when they try to save their season Thursday night, coach Mike Woodson just wants them to shoot with confidence.

Woodson says the Knicks' shooters are "kind of looking over our shoulders." They're certainly looking at a daunting situation.

Only eight NBA teams have overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series, and the Indiana Pacers can eliminate the Knicks and reach the Eastern Conference finals with a victory Thursday.

With the Knicks averaging 88.3 points on 41.2 percent shooting in the series, Woodson is considering another lineup change, and says the scoreless Kidd will continue to play.
