Making history, Haliburton joined elite company, including Nikola Jokic and Grant Hill, as the only players aged 23 or younger to record 25+ points, 10+ rebounds, 10+ assists, and 0 turnovers in a game since turnovers were first tracked in 1977-78. The Pacers, trailing with 48 points at halftime, exploded with a 74-point second half, marking their 12th 70+ point half this season, a record for the first 19 games.

Haliburton’s standout performance climaxed with a memorable 4-point play, solidifying his place in the annals of clutch plays and further establishing his reputation as a rising star in the NBA.
