Indiana broke 34-yea-old record for field shooting (53-for-79)

Tyrese Haliburton led the visiting Indiana Pacers to a 130-109 victory over the New York Knicks in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series, scoring 26 points.

The Pacers set an NBA playoff record by shooting 67.1 percent (53-for-79) from the field, surpassing the previous record held by the 1989-90 Boston Celtics, who shot 67 percent in a first-round game against the Knicks.

Haliburton was particularly efficient, making 10 of his 17 shots after taking only 34 shots combined in Games 1, 2, and 5, all played in New York. The sixth-seeded Pacers displayed remarkable resilience, overcoming series deficits of 2-0 and 3-2 to advance.

Indiana will face the top-seeded Boston Celtics in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals, starting Tuesday night in Boston. This marks the Pacers’ first trip to the conference finals since 2014.
