The 2020-21 NBA season has officially commenced and fans around the world are as excited as ever.

The Indiana Pacers will host the New York Knicks in Indianapolis in one of the 13 NBA games today. Both teams will begin their 2020-21 campaign with this fixture.

The rivalry between these two Eastern Conference teams dates back to the '90s, back when Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller got into a fight with New York Knicks superfan Spike Lee.

The rivalry became one of the most bitter ones in league history as fans of both teams were unwelcoming to the opposition players.

Although the rivalry has no meaning now, fans always feel the emotions in an NBA game.

The New York Knicks are clear underdogs in this matchup and the Indiana Pacers should cruise to a victory. Several players have reported injuries and we might see this game with incomplete rosters.
