Pacers defeat Knicks to tie playoff series

Pacers dominate Knicks in playoff game, tying series at 2-2. Haliburton scores 20, McConnell adds 15 points and 10 assists.

The Indiana Pacers dominated the New York Knicks in a thrilling playoff game, with Tyrese Haliburton leading the charge with 20 points. T.J. McConnell also had a stellar performance with 15 points and 10 assists. The Pacers secured their second-biggest playoff victory ever, leveling the Eastern Conference semifinal series at 2-2. Haliburton's impressive stats included six rebounds, five assists, and four 3-pointers, showcasing his all-around skills. The Pacers' commanding lead of 43 points highlighted their dominance throughout the game, falling just short of their most lopsided playoff victory. Despite a strong effort from the Knicks, with Alec Burks, Jalen Brunson, and Deuce McBride scoring in double figures, they struggled to keep up with the Pacers' relentless offense. The Knicks' shooting woes, with a field goal percentage of 33.7% and a 3-point percentage of 18.9%, contributed to their largest deficit in the postseason. The Pacers capitalized on the energy of a nearly full Gainbridge Fieldhouse, maintaining their undefeated record at home. With Game 5 set to take place in New York, both teams are gearing up for a competitive showdown.

In the Western Conference, the Denver Nuggets secured a crucial victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, thanks to stellar performances from Nikola Jokic and Aaron Gordon. Jokic's 35 points, with 16 in the fourth quarter, propelled the Nuggets to a series-tying win in Game 4 of the semifinals. Gordon's impressive shooting, going 11-for-12 from the field for 27 points, played a crucial role in the Nuggets' success. Jamal Murray's 19 points, including 12 in the third quarter, showcased his offensive prowess and helped maintain the Nuggets' momentum. Despite Anthony Edwards' impressive 44-point performance for the Timberwolves, the Nuggets' strong team effort proved too much for Minnesota to overcome. The Wolves' rebounding edge was not enough to counter the Nuggets' offensive firepower, with the defending champions firing on all cylinders. The series now heads back to Denver for Game 5, setting the stage for an exciting conclusion to this closely contested matchup. With standout performances from key players on both teams, the stage is set for a thrilling showdown as the Nuggets and Timberwolves battle for a spot in the conference finals.
