INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Patrick Ewing promised a Game 7 on Sunday, and he made sure there was one.

Ewing’s 25 points and 15 rebounds helped the New York Knicks force the Indiana Pacers to return to Madison Square Garden for a deciding game in the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 92-82 victory Friday night.

Ewing had a key basket and rebound in the game’s final two minutes to hold off a furious fourth-quarter comeback by Indiana.

Game 7 will be Sunday at Madison Square Garden. The winner will advance to play the Orlando Magic, which eliminated Chicago on Thursday night to win the series 4-2. Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals will be Tuesday at Orlando.
