The Indiana Pacers were able to beat the Milwaukee Bucks in one of the most exciting playoff games so far this year. The win should shut Bobby Portis up from making any more ridiculous comments about Indiana for the rest of the series. Tyrese Haliburton's game-winning floater was his first big playoff moment.

During that game, the Pacers had one of the most wild sequences in any game this year. Towards the end of regulation, the Pacers were trying to take the lead and had a really good opportunity to do so. They actually got six shots at it and couldn't come up with a bucket.

Despite the fact that Indiana wasn't able to put points on the board, this sequence was memorable for a different reason. It showed the value of Andrew Nembhard. He had a strong game in Game 3 defending Damian Lillard, holding him to just 6-20 from the field.

Nembhard showed his value to those who aren't Pacers fans by grabbing an insane three offensive rebounds during this sequence. Take a look at the screenshot below.

The fact that the Pacers couldn't score after this sequence is immensely frustrating. To be honest, I thought they were going to lose the game after coming up empty in this sequence. It just didn't seem like it was meant to be at that point. Missing six shots in one possession is lunacy.

Thank goodness that the Pacers were able to survive in overtime. Nembhard did introduce himself to the wider NBA audience with effort like that though. He has played so much better since the All-Star Break, specifically on the offensive side of the ball. His three-point shooting has improved to the point that he's a real weapon now.

Next. Next story. Why the offseason is going to be so tough for the Indiana Pacers. dark

The Pacers are in a great position as they head into Game 4. Damian Lillard might not play in that game either, so Indiana might get the Bucks without their two best players on Sunday. They have to win that game to take a stranglehold on the series.
