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.
