Let's see, how can we best sum up the way the Knicks have been playing in these past few games against the Pacers? Should we just link up the recap of their 93-82 loss on Tuesday night? What about an article where J.R. Smith takes responsibility for his dreadful shooting performance? Should we ask you to imagine the noise a sad trombone makes? Wait, we think we know: Just look at Carmelo Anthony's expression in the video above, and you'll get a sense of how bad the Knicks have been shooting.


Carmelo's time to shine

Carmelo Anthony has been shooting about 40 percent from the field in this series -- not terrible, for sure, but a little more than 4 percent worse than his season average.

Smith's struggles

The Sixth Man of the Year has been so ice cold in the playoffs that some wag created @DidJRSmithMiss on Twitter. Sample tweet: "I mean, what do you think?"

Kidd scoreless

Jason Kidd's not a huge part of the Knicks' plans, but he's played 177 minutes in the past eight games and has scored zero points.
