  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Pours in career-high 29 points

  • Pacers' T.J. McConnell: Produces well sans Haliburton

    McConnell closed Wednesday's 119-113 loss to the Knicks with 14 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 26 minutes.

    McConnell had one of his best performances of the season at a time when the Pacers needed him the most, as he helped fill in for Tyrese Haliburton (knee) following the starting point guard's early departure.
