Haliburton drops 33 as Pacers end 76ers’ 8-game winning streak

A monster 33-point, 15-assist night courtesy of Tyrese Haliburton propelled the Indiana Pacers to a 132-126 road win over the Philadelphia 76ers who were riding an eight-game unbeaten streak.

The 23-year-old becomes the first player in Pacers history to put up 33+ points, 7+ rebounds, and 15+ assists in a single game.

He also joins James Harden as the only players in league history to reach those marks and hit seven or more three-pointers.

He shot 11-of-18 from the floor and 7-of-13 from three whilst also finishing a game-best +19.

Haliburton had some assistance, however, with Obi Toppin putting up a season-high 27 points on 12-of-15 shooting to go along with six rebounds and a block whilst Myles Turner finished with 17 points (15 of which coming in the fourth) before fouling out.

A dominant opening frame saw the Pacers leap out to a double-digit first half lead which grew to as many as 13 on the other side of half-time before the 76ers mounted a comeback effort.

Nick Nurse’s squad wrestled the lead back off Indiana mid-way through the final period before the visitors strung together a 21-9 run to seal it.

Indiana won the boards battle and finished with 32 assists on 48 made shots whilst forcing 16 Philadelphia turnovers and holding their opponents to just 6-of-22 from deep.

The 76ers were lead by reigning MVP Joel Embiid’s 39 points, 12 rebounds, and six assists whilst Tyrese Maxey had 27 points and five assists.

De’Anthony Melton poured on a season-high 30 points on 8-of-13 shooting whilst Tobias Harris added 22 points and seven rebounds.

The 76ers are back in action tomorrow against the Celtics whilst the Pacers will meet with the Magic on Monday.
