The Pacers scored a clean sweep, going 4-0 in their group. This led them to a home quarterfinal matchup. Who will they face? Jayson Tatum and his Celtics team. The Celtics secured their place too, though they had a slightly lower 3-1 winning record in their group.
The home team certainly capitalized on their local support, securing a 122-112 victory at Gainbridge Fieldhouse amidst incredible cheers. The team from Indiana was behind by seven points at halftime, but they bounced back impressively in the third quarter, thanks to a powerful 17-3 run.
This marked Indiana’s fourth unexpected win in the In-Season Tournament. They had a significant victory at home against Cleveland Cavaliers (+2.5). Also, they managed remarkable away wins against the Philadelphia 76ers (+5.5) and Atlanta Hawks (+3.5). This happened in the East Group A games.
Thus, the game today with the Bucks shouldn’t trouble them. They can build confidence from their previous 126-124 triumph over Milwaukee. That game took place on November 9 in Indianapolis.
In the victorious game, Giannis Antetokounmpo achieved a remarkable 54 points for the season. Despite this, the Pacers emerged as winners due to their successful 20 three-pointers. Outstanding performances were seen from Haliburton with 29 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds. Bennedict Mathurin also showed impressive play with 26 points and 11 assists. Myles Turner contributed significantly too with 21 points, as well as six rebounds and four assists.
