Tyrese Haliburton believes prioritizing rebounding could be key in Game 6

In Game 5 of their series, the Knicks were a dominant force in the glass as they controlled the defensive rebounds with 33. Not only were they crashing the boards defensively, but they also got a ton of second-chance opportunities since they controlled rebounding on the offensive end.

New York had 53 total rebounds; 33 were on defense, and 20 were on offense. The Pacers, on the other hand, were passive in rebounding the ball. They had 29 total rebounds; 24 were from the defensive side, while they only had five offensively.

As they prepare for Game 6, Tyrese Haliburton shared that rebounding is key to their game plan against the Knicks.

"I think the biggest thing is just rebounding, finishing possessions," Haliburton said. "It’s no secret that they dominated the glass, so we gotta be able to finish possessions better. Once we do that, that allows our offense, everything to open up."

The Pacers are focused on extending the series as they try to win Game 6 at home tonight.
