SERIES NOTES:

After Game 6: The Indiana Pacers hosted and defeated the New York Knickerbockers 106-pts-99 to achieve a 4-games-2 win of MLB/NBA/NHL best-of-7 playoff series 1212. With the series 1212 win, the Indiana Pacers improve their best-of-7 NBA playoff series record to 12-11 overall and 7-2 in the Quarterfinals round. With the series 1212 loss, the best-of-7 NBA playoff series record of the New York Knickerbockers falls to 18-26 overall and 10-12 in the Quarterfinals. The win order for the victorious Indiana Pacers in series 1212 was WLWWLW: Series 1212 thus becomes the seventh NBA Quarterfinals series, the 22nd NBA series (all rounds), and the 43rd MLB/NBA/NHL series (all rounds) to follow that win order to completion. The Indiana Pacers also contributed a WLWWLW win to the six previous NBA Quarterfinals series to follow that win order to completion, doing so in series 667 against the Atlanta Hawks in the 1994 NBA Quarterfinals. The completion of series 1212 thus brings to a conclusion the 2013 NBA Quarterfinals the first NBA Quarterfinals round not to feature a seventh game since 2010.

After Game 5: The New York Knickerbockers hosted and defeated the Indiana Pacers 85-pts-75 to reduce the Indiana MLB/NBA/NHL best-of-7 playoff series 1212 lead to 3-games-2. When leading a best-of-7 NBA playoff series 3-games-2, the Indiana Pacers have a 7-1 series record (with an active six-series winning streak) and a 5-3 Game 6 record. When trailing a best-of-7 NBA playoff series 3-games-2, the New York Knickerbockers have a 2-10 series record and a 7-5 Game 6 record.
