"I know what time it is," a mic'd-up Haliburton said during the celebration.
Haliburton finished with 27 points, 15 assists, seven rebounds and zero turnovers in the semifinal triumph, continuing his stellar fourth NBA season. He's averaging 26.9 points while leading the league in assists per game at 12.1 this season.
Haliburton, who's coming off his first All-Star appearance, may just be the frontrunner for IST MVP, as he's averaging 27.8 points and 13.7 assists across six tournament games -- all Pacers wins.
