The New York Knicks played the fourth quarter of Game 4 without Isaiah Hartenstein and Mitchell Robinson. Hartenstein picked up five fouls in the third quarter and Robinson didn't play after he re-injured his left ankle in Game 3. OG Anunoby and Precious Achiuwa stepped up to lock Joel Embiid up down the stretch.

New York needs to end it in Game 5, or else the team will have to travel back to Philadelphia. Indiana is up 3-1 over Milwaukee, and the Pacers could also end their series on Tuesday. The Knicks and Pacers are one win away from clashing in the second round. A New York loss and Indiana win would give the Pacers extra time to rest and prepare for the semifinals.

Having Robinson back in the lineup will increase the Knicks' chances of a victory. It's a good sign that he warmed up on Sunday, even though he didn't get the green light to play. Hopefully, the four days of rest were enough for the big man to recover.
