The Indiana Pacers came out on fire in Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinals series against the New York Knicks.

The Pacers made an otherworldly 76.3% of their shots in the first half against the Knicks on Sunday at Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y. They led 70-55 after the first 24 minutes.

Indiana’s shooting percentage was a record for the franchise in any first half of a game. The percentage was also the best the NBA has seen for any playoff game in the past 25 years.

Tyrese Haliburton led the way for the Pacers in the first half and went 4/6 on his 3-point attempts.

Haliburton even got into it with some Knicks fans while he was hitting shots from all over the court. You can see the video here.

Considering how well the Pacers shot, the Knicks did well to cut the lead to 15 by halftime.
