Historic Shooting Performance Leads Indiana Pacers to Victory over New York Knicks in Game 7

New York Knicks (E2) – Indiana Pacers (E6) 109:130 (BOXSCORE), Series: 3-4

At halftime, the guests had already scored over 76 percent (29/38 FG) from the field, which was the best return in a playoff game in the past 25 years. In the end it was still a strong 67.1 percent, so New York was never really in the game with the exception of the beginning of the third quarter, when the deficit was temporarily reduced to -6. It was also an NBA playoff record that the Boston Celtics had previously set against the Knicks in 1990 (67.0 percent).

Tyrese Haliburton (26, 10/17 FG, 6/12 3P) had the best game of his series at the Garden, but the match winner was backup TJ McConnell (12, 6/8, 7 assists), who always played well in his minutes for Indiana throws. Pascal Siakam (20, 8/15) scored most of his points in the first few minutes of the game.

OG Anunoby made his comeback for the Knicks after his thigh injury in Game 2, but the forward abandoned this attempt after just under five minutes. Josh Hart (abdominal muscle strain), who had been in doubt for a long time, was also part of the game and played almost the entire game until he fouled out three minutes before the end. Jalen Brunson, however, didn’t have a good evening, scoring 17 points (6/17 FG) and 9 assists in 29 minutes. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the All-Star disappeared into the dressing room, the Knicks reported a fracture in his left hand.
