Pacers beat the Hawks 157-152

Pacers' wing Buddy Hield extended the lead with a 3-pointer at the 4:30 mark, followed by an emphatic two-handed alley-oop finish from Obi Toppin off a Tyrese Haliburton assist. Hield added another 3, but the Hawks, led by Jalen Johnson and Trae Young, closed the gap with driving layups and free throws from Dejounte Murray. A turnover led to the Hawks briefly taking a 150-149 lead after Young's 22-foot step-back jumper. However, the Pacers responded with a barrage of three-pointers. 

A pivotal moment came when officials nullified Murray's potential game-tying 155-155 attempt, ruling a leg kick on his 3-point shot. Despite a challenge from Hawks coach Quin Snyder, the call stood. The Hawks initially capitalized on transition play, scoring a franchise-record 86 points in the first half and building a 13-point lead. Their offense, marked by efficient 3-point shooting and balanced scoring, showcased unselfish play from a nine-man rotation.
