INDIANAPOLIS -- If you're looking for someone to blame for the New York Knicks' 3-1 series deficit to the Indiana Pacers, J.R. Smith has a suggestion for you: start with him.
"I take the blame for this whole series," Smith said after shooting 7-for-22 in the Knicks' Game 4 loss. "It started off with Game 4 in Boston or Game 5. I haven't been playing myself. I haven't been playing my part. I've been letting my teammates down. I've been letting my coaches down."
