Saturday, March 30, 2024

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Coach Rick Carlisle believes his Indiana Pacers are already in playoff mode. If Friday night is any indication, that could be a promising sign for a team that has lost nine straight postseason games and hasn't won a playoff series in a decade. Pascal Siakam finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds, Tyrese Haliburton added 21 points, eight assists and eight rebounds and the Pacers beat the Los Angeles Lakers 109-90 in a pivotal game in the conference standings. LINKC. LeBron James (left ankle) and Anthony Davis (left knee) both started despite injuries and played like perennial All-Stars as the Lakers tried to improve from starting the night seeded No. 9 in the West. Davis finished with 24 points and 15 rebounds, while James had 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.
