When the Indiana Pacers acquired Tyrese Haliburton in a trade with the Sacramento Kings in exchange for a trade package around Domantas Sabonis, not many expected him to become a superstar in the league.
However, since joining the Pacers, Haliburton has emerged as one of the best players in the league.
After becoming an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career last season, Haliburton has repeated the same level of success this season as well.
Haliburton’s incredible passing skills are arguably second to none in the NBA right now, and he proved that once again during the Pacers’ recent win over the New York Knicks.
During a play in the third quarter, Haliburton made a self-pass with the help of the backboard and then dished the ball to Pascal Siakam, who nailed a three-pointer, as revealed in a video posted by the Indiana Pacers’ official Twitter handle.

It was an amazing move that instantly produced amazing reactions from the NBA fans below the tweet.
I am glad Siakam made that three. It would be disappointment if he missed it. Play of the month!

Best. Pacer. Ever.
I haven’t been this excited about the Pacers since…*whispers*…2004.

Tyrese Haliburton’s pass impressed many fans.
Some claimed that he is the best player the Indiana Pacers have had since the retirement of NBA legend Reggie Miller.
On the other hand, a few fans drew comparisons to Kobe Bryant’s similar move when he was playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.
All things considered, Haliburton has slowly but surely become a fan-favorite.
As for his stats, Haliburton has averaged 22.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 11.7 assists per game for the Pacers in 41 appearances this season.
