Updated:

The NBA postseason continues tonight with two more games. Sunday saw the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets both even up their playoff series at 2-2. Indiana used a solid all-around effort and beat the New York Knicks 121-89. Tyrese Haliburton led six Pacers players in double figures with 20 points. 

The Pacers also put forth an outstanding defensive effort, particularly on Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson. Aaron Nesmith has held Brunson to 9-for-27 shooting this NBA postseason. Indiana shot 57 percent yesterday and hit 14 three-pointers to tie the series after falling behind 2-0.
