The New York Knicks' season is over after their comeback fell short Saturday night in Indianapolis.
New York fell 106-99 to the Pacers in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal matchup, bowing out of the series four games to two.
After a win in Game 5 Thursday at Madison Square Garden, the Knicks were attempting to become just the ninth team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a seven-game series.
Carmelo Anthony topped all scorers with 39 points and Iman Shumpert added five 3-pointers for New York, but Lance Stephenson led a trio of 20-point shooters for Indiana.
The Knicks got the the conference semifinals by defeating the Boston Celtics four games to two for their first playoff series win since 2000.
Asked if he thought the team underachieved in the playoffs, Knicks head coach Mike Woodson responded, "Not at all. I mean, gosh, this is the first time this team has ever been assembled. We did a lot of special things this season, so to walk away from this and say it was a disaster, absolutely not."
Knicks forward J.R. Smith told reporters on Saturday that he would like to retire as a Knick, but it's uncertain whether the team will want him back next year.
