The NBA In-Season Tournament semis are set | The GIST

    The GIST: Las Vegas, here they come. The inaugural NBA In-Season Tournament (IST) semifinals are set, and with $500K per winning player on the line, these four squads are throwing down like it’s the playoffs, in hopes of earning a spot in Saturday’s championship.

    Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks — Tomorrow at 5 p.m. ET: Pacers rising star Tyrese Haliburton made his parents proud on Monday, posting his first career triple-double in a jubilant 122–112 win over the Boston Celtics. Defying the odds, one aquamarine court at a time.

    • Meanwhile, Giannis Antetokounmpo shined in last night’s quarter-final, scoring 35 points in the Bucks’ 146–122 win over the NY Knicks and securing his squad’s place in tomorrow’s Eastern Conference semi.
    • In their only meeting this season, the Pacers triumphed over the Bucks with a two-point win, but Antetokounmpo scored a season-high 54 points that game. All to say, expect fireworks tomorrow.

    New Orleans Pelicans vs. LA Lakers — Tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET: On Monday, Brandon Ingram dropped 30 points to help the New Orleans Pelicans win 127–117 and knock the then-undefeated Sacramento Kings out of the tourney.

    • Then last night, Laker LeBron James proved he’s hungry to add more hardware to his collection, posting 31 points in LA’s 106–103 win over Kevin Durant and the Phoenix Suns en route to the Western Conference semi. What, like it’s hard?
