The Indiana Pacers were down by more than 20 points on Wednesday night but they still rallied back and were able to beat the Chicago Bulls in a big way.
There were multiple stars doing incredible work for the Pacers but it was once again Buddy Hield who led the way with 27 points, including 6 three-pointers.

That set a franchise record for the Pacers.
Hield has now passed Reggie Miller for the most three-pointers made in a single season with 230.
This cements Hield’s importance with the Pacers and shows that the front office is very smart to hold onto him.
It seems like Hield’s name has been attached to trade rumors for years now.
Yet, none of these rumors have led to anything and Hield has remained with his team despite multiple front offices eyeing him and thinking of a future with him.
Hield is averaging 17.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists a season.
He is also producing 3.8 threes a game.
The Pacers are still experiencing a lot of trouble and are the 12th team in the East but there is legitimately great talent on the roster.
Hield is joined by Myles Turner, Andrew Nembhard, Bennedict Mathurin, Chris Duarte, and Tyrese Haliburton, who are all having very strong seasons too.
The team is a long way from true greatness but they have a lot of promising building blocks for a strong future.
And Hield could be a huge part of that future – but you should expect to keep hearing his name as a possible trade candidate.NEXT: The Pacers’ Epic Collapse Continues
