Tyrese vs Spain: First Half
Steve Kerr would again try to get Haliburton some early run, only waiting about 7 minutes to check him in, with 3:40 left in the first half. This time, instead of getting an early assist, Haliburton would call his own number, draining a baseline jumper about 2 minutes after checking in.
Tyrese would not wait long afterward to get his first assist, hitting up Cam Johnson, one of his favorite targets so far, for the 3 at the start of the second quarter.
My statement about Cam Johnson being Tyrese’s favorite target so far rings true, as less than a minute later, Tyrese would hit him up for another open 3.
Tyrese would continue his first-half passing masterclass, dishing out 5 more assists in the second quarter alone for a total of 7 assists at the half, including this steal and tip to Austin Reaves for a fastbreak dunk at the end of the second quarter.
