Stud - Tyrese Haliburton

Another game, another ridiculous performance for Tyrese Haliburton. After a tough stretch of performances, Haliburton is back to the point where he should have a permanent residence on the studs list.

Early on in the season, Haliburton was putting up some crazy scoring performances, but now, he’s doing it all in the passing game - even more so than usual.

In the Indiana Pacers’ last win over the Chicago Bulls, Haliburton dropped an impressive 20 assists, but against the New York Knicks on Saturday night, he outdid himself.

Haliburton ended the night with 22 points, five rebounds, 23 assists, two steals, and one block while shooting 8-of-17 from the field and 2-of-10 from behind the three-point line.

There are few players in the league of capable of putting up at least 20 assists, and Haliburton may be the only one who is able to do it for two nights in a row.

Having a guy like Haliburton to lead the way gives the Pacers a constant advantage on the offensive end, but at the same time, they should be exploring ways to potentially take some of the pressure off of him.

With the trade deadline inching closer and closer, expect the Pacers to stay active because Haliburton is ready and good enough to help them compete right now.
