Knicks not planning lineup change vs. bigger Pacers

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

The New York Knicks will not concede they have a "big" problem - yet.

They know the Indiana Pacers have a size advantage, realize that Carmelo Anthony is going to get beat up banging against a bulkier body, and understand that a change to a lineup with a conventional power forward may become necessary.

Not now, but check back if they lose Game 2 on Tuesday night.

The Pacers outrebounded the Knicks 44-30 in their 102-95 victory Saturday in the opener of the second-round series.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson says Monday he's "not saying I won't" make a lineup change, but that "I'm just saying right now we've only got one game under our belt. ... The small lineup that we started didn't cost us."
