Tyrese Haliburton’s Parents Were So Proud After He Led Pacers To In-Season Tournament Final
In the opening In-Season Tournament semifinal between the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers in Las Vegas, Tyrese Haliburton made a grand entrance as a true NBA superstar in the spotlight.
Haliburton showcased his skills by scoring 27 points, dishing out 15 assists, grabbing seven rebounds, and impressively, not committing a single turnover. His outstanding performance helped the Indiana Pacers defeat the Milwaukee Bucks with a score of 128-119, securing their spot in the championship game of the In-Season Tournament.
Although the Pacers had a 12-point lead at halftime, the Bucks made a strong comeback in the second half, resulting in a closely contested final quarter. However, Haliburton’s layup widened Indiana’s lead to five points with only 1:33 left on the clock. To seal the victory, the superstar guard confidently sank a remarkable stepback three-pointer with 49.1 seconds remaining.
After making the game-clinching shot, Haliburton playfully imitated Damian Lillard’s famous ‘Dame Time’ celebration and boldly declared, “Ya’ll know what time it is.”
Halliburton is hoping to lead the Pacers to what would be the franchise’s first ever title, when the Pacers face off against the Los Angeles Lakers in Saturday’s In-Season Tournament Final.
For yesterday’s semifinal, the All-Stars’ parents were sitting courtside and seemed to love every single moment of their son’s show. After Haliburton’s dagger three that effectively ended the game, they seemed incredibly joyful and proud of their kid. This is amazing.
