Indiana had a double-double with Domantas Savonis 25 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists, but the team’s three-point success rate was only 27.3%, which hampered the lack of outer guns.
Chicago finished the first half with a 49-44 lead, widening the gap with White’s free throw and Rabin’s three-point shot early in the third quarter. Indiana didn’t just watch. Indiana, which narrowed the gap with Savonis’ consecutive goals, tied the score as Justin Halladay’s outer gun revived. However, while Indiana faltered due to a series of errors at the end of the third quarter, Chicago, which opened the lead again with bench members’ performances, finished the third quarter with 79-70.
Indiana’s counterattack began in the fourth quarter. Indiana, which gained momentum with consecutive three-pointers from Jeremy Lam and T.J. McConnell, returned to square one with Miles Turner’s free throw and Lam’s outer shot in the middle of the quarter. Since then, the two teams have exchanged leads and had a fierce battle.
It was a close game until the end of the fourth quarter. With 27.2 seconds left before the end of the game, Lavigne fired a three-point shot that gave the team the lead. Indiana lost Savonis’ shot under the net and had a chance to turn it around, but after Operation Foul, Malcolm Brockdon tied the score under the net. In Chicago’s final attack, Lavigne’s jumper missed, so the game went to an extension.
Chicago laughed at the extension. Chicago took the lead again with Garrett Temple’s under-goal goal and Denzel Valentine’s three-pointer. Indiana had difficulty in developing the attack because the outer gun did not listen. With Tedious Young and White in the scoring, Chicago beat out the opponent’s pursuit to the end and became the winner.
