Tyrese Haliburton talks trash to Knicks fans in the first half of Game 7

Tyrese Haliburton is quickly making history in the Knicks-Pacers rivalry, and added to it in Game 7.

The Pacers point guard finished the first half with a game-high 16 points and was speechless in front of fans on the court at Madison Square Garden.

ESPN cameras caught Haliburton yelling and pointing at fans as he walked toward the Pacers’ bench after the Knicks called a timeout with 2:03 left in the first quarter and the Pacers led 34-22.

“You like it,” he appeared to tell fans.

The exchanges between Haliburton and the fans had a throwback vibe to the days when Reggie Miller was Public Enemy No. 1 at Madison Square Garden.

Haliburton was seen talking shit to a fan after hitting a 3-point basket and walking up the court with 3:57 left in the first quarter.

The same fans could be seen trying to trash talk after several more shots were thrown from Haliburton and it ultimately led to the moment where the Knicks called a timeout.

With a minute left, Haliburton hit another triple for his 14th point of the quarter and you could see him pointing at the fans once again.

All of this comes with both the Knicks and Pacers’ seasons on the line, with the winner of Game 7 advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals while the other’s season will end.

Sunday’s do-or-die match already had a choppy tone after the benches cleared moments earlier.

Donte DiVincenzo pushed Pascal Siakam out of the way after he stood in the way as DiVincenzo tried to line up for a shot from the charity stripe.

Isaiah Hartenstein then found himself facing Siakam to defend his teammate and other players began to get involved to the point that both benches found themselves on the field.
