New York – NBA star Tyrese Haliburton had 19 assists and 29 points in Indiana's win over Houston 134:125 after overtime. In the twelfth place of the Eastern Conference, the Pacers came within a single win of the tenth Washington, which holds the last promotion spot for the pre-round of the playoffs. The Rockets continue to close the Western Conference standings.
Haliburton scored in overtime, scoring 12 of Indiana's 19 points. In the match itself, he mainly prepared positions for his teammates and set a personal record in the number of assists. “I don't feel any pressure, it's just basketball. But I understand that my teammates expect me to create events, that's why I'm here,” Haliburton said. But the twenty-three-year-old player took the extension on himself. “He himself took control of the game at the set time. He showed what he's capable of. He likes moments like this, I see in him the same enthusiasm that Reggie Miller once had,” coach Rick Carlisle compared the leader of the team to the legend of the club.
The second team of the Western Conference, Memphis, after three defeats, won convincingly 131:110 over the champion Golden State, which, on the other hand, came up empty-handed for the third time in a row. The Grizzlies won their first game in Game 3 without Ja Morant, who will miss at least three more games due to a gun incident in a nightclub, led by Tyus Jones with 22 points and 11 assists, and Jaren Jackson and Desmond Bane, who gave up only point less. Stephen Curry's 29 points didn't help Golden State either.
Sacramento has the same record as Memphis (39-26) after a 122:117 victory over New York. The Kings were led by Domantas Sabonis, who scored 24 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists and scored his ninth triple double of the season.
The league leaders from Milwaukee, even without Janis Adetokunbo, who did not play for the second time in a row due to a sore hand, dealt with a weakened Brooklyn and won 118:113. Bobby Portis contributed 28 points and 13 rebounds, Brook Lopez added nine blocks to 24 points and 10 rebounds.
Detroit – Charlotte 103:113, Indiana – Houston 134:125 overtime, Memphis – Golden State 131:110, Milwaukee – Brooklyn 118:113, Orlando – Utah 124:131, Sacramento – New York 122:117.
