Later tonight, the Pacers will take on the Knicks in Game 6 of their second round series. With a 3-2 series lead, the Pacers are looking to make their first Eastern Conference Finals appearance since the 1999-2000 season.

Looking to help them knock off the Knicks will be point guard George Hill, who just a short while ago, was cleared to play tonight.

Hill did not play in Game 5 after suffering a concussion. Without him, the Pacers lost in New York 85-75 in an ugly affair. Hill’s return will be a big boost, as over the course of the series, he has averaged 17.3 points, 4.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds a game.
