The Pacers will have had an All-Star showing all weekend, and on Sunday, they will have their fearless leader in the All-Star Game showing just how far Indiana has come in a matter of months.
Haliburton lit up the three-point competition, showing just how much of a sharpshooter Indy has running the point. He tied Stephen Curry’s first round score for the best first round in 3 point contest history:
On Sunday he will lace up his shoes and attempt to keep the momentum going on his magical season thus far.
How to watch all of the All-Star Game Sunday festivities:
3 p.m. ET: NBA G League Next Up Game (NBA TV)
7:30 p.m. ET: All-Star Draft Presented by Jordan Brand (TNT)
- In a different format from previous years, teams will be selected immediately prior to the game rather than chosen during the week leading up. It will be interesting to see how this changes the vibe of the evening.
8:30 p.m. ET: 72nd NBA All-Star Game (TNT)
- While we don’t know the exact teams, we do know that we expect to the Haliburton play significant minutes. Given the number of injuries at the top of each team, we expect that Tyrese will be one of the better player on the floor for his team, and given he is young, will have the ability to play extended minutes.
Our prediction regarding Tyrese:
We expect that Tyrese Haliburton will put his passing skills on display in the all-star game with a few points mixed in. Our expectation is that Haliburton will have a modest night points-wise but will have as many if not the most assists out of any player in the game.
Pacers fans should definitely watch and be excited for the future of the franchise as Haliburton will show the world that he is the best point guard in the East and should be in the conversation come All-NBA team selections.
