Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Player Prop Picks: Can Tyrese Haliburton Get Hot in Game 2?

The Indiana Pacers are playing in Milwaukee Bucks for Game 2 of the first round in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Tyrese Haliburton had a rough first game of the series, but I believe he will get it going today and down below I will explain why.

Pacers vs. Bucks Game 2 DATE, TIME, AND WHERE TO WATCH

  • Date: April 23, 2024
  • Start Time: 8:30 p.m. ET
  • Where to Watch: NBA TV

Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Prediction

First off, I initially saw this line and was all over it, some books are already bumping this line up to 29.5, which honestly I would also take. The difference in odds isn't really worth it to me though and would recommend taking lower odds and having the 28.5.

I know a lot of people were tailing this exact play in Game 1, I've also heard of a lot of people saying they are done betting on Haliburton because he is too unreliable. Well, that person is not me, I trust Haliburton to get it done today and turn it on for the Pacers.

Before his rough Game 1, Haliburton was averaging 27 points and 11 assists against the Bucks in five games this season. So, what was different about game one? Nerves. Hopefully after the poor outing in Game 1 and the large amount of criticism he's gotten, that aspect will be behind him. What else was different? Shot attempts. Haliburton averaged 18.8 FGA in the regular season against the Bucks, he shot only seven times in Game 1.

And lastly, the last thing that was going wrong with Haliburton was three point percentage. Not just Haliburton, but the whole Pacers squad were bricking their threes like crazy in Game 1. That obviously affects his assists as well. They went 8 for 38, 21.1%, when they are averaging 37.4% on the season. All these aspects from Game 1, especially his last of field goal attempts, have been spoken about at length by the basketball media. I think the Pacers absolutely try and correct and get Haliburton back to his normal form today.
