"It's a crunch-time shot," Curry said. "I tried to get open. He played good D. I thought I had an angle on him to get the shot up and he stayed right there with me.
"Can't do nothing about it, but you'd like to have that one back obviously. ... It's tough. You want to be able to celebrate a performance like that with a win."
NOTES: Knicks forward Rasheed Wallace will require surgery this week for a fractured bone in his left foot and will be out for eight weeks, meaning he would miss the rest of the regular season, the Knicks announced. Wallace, who averaged 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 20 games, had been out since Dec. 13 with the foot injury, but the club said the fracture was discovered in recent X-rays. ... Knicks point guard Pablo Prigioni (back spasms) was deemed able to play shortly before game time. ... Along with Lee's suspension, Curry and Klay Thompson were fined $35,000 apiece, as was the Pacers' Lance Stephenson, for their roles in escalating Tuesday's fight, the league announced. Jackson said he didn't think Lee deserved the one-game suspension, which was also imposed on the Pacers' Roy Hibbert.
