The Indiana Pacers are back on a roll, and on Saturday night, they picked up their third win in a row, taking down the New York Knicks by a score of 140-126.

While their play on the defensive end still leaves much to be desired, as evidenced by New York’s 126 points without the recently traded RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley, they’re back to putting up great numbers on offense.

Donte DiVincenzo ended up scoring a game-high 38 points, absolutely torching the Pacers, but Tyrese Haliburton also set a new standard for himself.

Let’s take a look at the two studs and one dud from the Pacers’ win over the Knicks on Saturday.

Stud - Myles Turner

Yet another game in which Myles Turner stepped up in a big way on the offensive side of the ball. After a slew of rough performances, Turner has gotten back into the flow of things.

The New York Knicks are down Mitchell Robinson and Jericho Sims, leaving them with Isaiah Hartenstein and Taj Gibson holding down the fort in the middle. Regardless, Turner was able to space them out.

Turner finished the game with a team-high 28 points to go along with eight rebounds and two assists while shooting 10-of-17 from the field and 6-of-8 from behind the three-point line.

With Turner knocking down his threes, the Pacers are very tough to guard on offense. (Even more so than they are in general, as one of the best offenses in basketball.) Turner is fully back in form.
