  • Pacers' Myles Turner: Strong double-double in loss

    Turner racked up 22 points (9-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist over 39 minutes during Saturday's 114-111 loss to the Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Turner was one of the players who needed to step up offensively in Game 3, and he delivered another solid stat line, but the Pacers crumbled down the stretch and had to settle with another loss. Turner posted his second double-double of the series, and he's 15-plus points in all but one of his last six playoff contests.

  • Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Scores career-high 32 points

    Nembhard racked up 32 points (12-21 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and nine assists across 39 minutes during Saturday's 114-111 loss to Boston in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Nembhard had to step up his game with Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) sidelined, and the second-year guard delivered the best performance of his career on the biggest stage. However, he lost the ball in a critical sequence against Jrue Holiday when the Pacers had to go for a comeback in the final seconds, but aside from that, he was excellent. Nemnhard is averaging 20.0 points, 7.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game in the Eastern Conference Finals so far.

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Shines off bench despite loss

    McConnell notched 23 points (10-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 114-111 loss to Boston in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    McConnell came off the bench Saturday despite the fact Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) was unavailable, and the veteran floor general made a huge impact on both ends of the court once again. Given that McConnell outplayed Ben Sheppard, who started Game 3 in place of Haliburton, it wouldn't be surprising if McConnell moves to the starting lineup in Game 4 with Indiana facing a 0-3 deficit in the series. McConnell is averaging 15.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game in the Eastern Conference Finals.

  • Pacers' Ben Sheppard: Starting Game 3

    Sheppard will start Saturday's Game 3 against the Celtics, Tony East of SI.com reports.

    Tyrese Haliburton (leg) has been ruled out for Game 3, and his availability for Game 4 and beyond is in jeopardy too. In 15 postseason appearances, Sheppard has averaged 5.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 three-pointers.

  • Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton: Set to miss Game 3

    Haliburton (hamstring) is expected to sit out Saturday's matchup with the Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference FInals, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    In Game 2, Haliburton exited in the third quarter with a sore left hamstring, an injury to the same hamstring that kept him out for 10 games in January. T.J. McConnell, Andrew Nembhard and Ben Sheppard are all likely to see expanded roles out of the backcourt in Game 3 while Haliburton sits out. The severity of Haliburton's injury remains unclear, so for the time being, the Pacers seem to be viewing him as day-to-day. That being said, Haliburton isn't guaranteed to return to the lineup for Monday's Game 4.

  • Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton: Questionable for Game 3

    Haliburton (hamstring) is questionable for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics on Saturday.

    Haliburton exited Thursday's Game 2 due to left hamstring soreness, but coach Rick Carlisle expressed hope after the game that it was a short-term issue. However, it's unclear whether Haliburton will be able to suit up when the Pacers return home Saturday in hopes of getting their first win of the series. If Haliburton is unavailable, T.J. McConnell, Andrew Nembhard and Ben Sheppard could see increased roles.

  • Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton: Aggravates hamstring in Game 2

    Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said after Thursday's 126-110 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals that Haliburton's departure late in the third quarter was the result of left hamstring soreness, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports. "We hope that this is a very short-term aggravation," Carlisle said.

    Though Haliburton tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight assists, four rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes before leaving the game for good with 3:44 remaining in the third quarter, he appeared to have picked up the injury earlier in the contest. He fell hard to the floor in the first half and was spotted in the medical imaging room at TD Garden during halftime to get evaluated for a chest injury, but Carlisle relayed after the game that Haliburton was also getting his hamstring worked on. Haliburton was playing in pain in the third quarter before checking out of the game for good with an injury that the Pacers officially labeled as left leg soreness before Carlisle provided more clarity afterward. The All-Star guard previously missed 10 games in January due to a strain of the same hamstring, so he could struggle to gain clearance ahead of Saturday's Game 3 in Indiana.

  • Pacers' Pascal Siakam: Leads way in scoring Thursday

    Siakam registered 28 points (13-17 FG, 2-2 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Thursday's 126-110 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Siakam was Indiana's best player by a wide margin, as he missed just four of his 17 shots and also made his presence felt on the glass in a game during which the Pacers looked outmatched in terms of physicality and intensity. Siakam should remain one of Indiana's primary offensive weapons in Game 3, and he would be in line for an even more prominent role if Tyrese Haliburton (leg) doesn't play Saturday.

  • Pacers' Myles Turner: Annulled in Game 2 defeat

    Turner had eight points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal over 24 minutes during Thursday's 126-110 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Turner had issues with foul trouble all game long, and that was the main reason why he was limited to just 24 minutes -- his second-lowest mark in the current playoff run. Turner also snapped his streak of games with double-digit points at six, and he'll aim to bounce back in Game 3 on Saturday.

  • Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Scores 16 points in Game 2 loss

    Nembhard contributed 16 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, five assists and one steal over 26 minutes during Thursday's 126-110 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Nembhard extended his run of playoff performances with double-digit points to five, and he's also dished out at least five assists three times during that span. Nembhard might be in line for a more prominent role in the playmaking department if Tyrese Haliburton (leg) doesn't play in Game 3 on Saturday.
