Knicks-Pacers Game 5: George Hill out with concussion

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Pacers sprung a surprise on everyone before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series between the New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers, announcing that their starting point guard will not play Thursday night:

The injury is a huge blow to the Pacers. Hill has been phenomenal in this series and lead the Pacers in Game 4 with 26 points. He's spread the floor and managed their turnovers, while helping deter Knicks PG Raymond Felton from penetration.

Without him, the Knicks have a solid chance to push this series back to Indiana and force a momentum shift. Hill is averaging 16 points, four rebounds and four assists in the playoffs this postseason.
