A couple of months ago, there were numerous NBA fans impressed by what they saw from the Indiana Pacers.
Despite the fact that many had written the team off, the Pacers were doing something special and were winning some pretty big games, including some against the New Orleans Pelicans, Miami Heat, Golden State Warriors, and Boston Celtics.
But recently their good times have come to a screeching halt.
The Pacers are now 1-11 in their last 12 games. They’re now sitting in 11th place in the Eastern Conference with only a 0.5 game lead on 12th over the Raptors. The Pacers are 2-10 in 12 games Tyrese Haliburton hasn’t played in this season

Coast 2 Coast on Twitter has highlighted the fact that the Pacers are now 1-11 in their last 12 games.
That means the team is currently 11th in the East and just a half-game over the 12th-place Toronto Raptors.
The Pacers are a painful 2-10 in the 12 games they have had without superstar Tyrese Haliburton.
During this rough stretch of matches, the Pacers have been defeated by the likes of the Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, and many others.
Since January 11, they have only taken down the Chicago Bulls in a close 116-110 win.
The loss of Haliburton has been truly detrimental.
He has been out since the 13th of January, which is right around the time this string of big losses started.
Before his departure, Haliburton was having an enormous season, scoring 20.2 points, 4 rebounds, and an amazing 10.2 assists a game.
His passes were amazing and he was reading the floor like an All-Star.
He was also running all of the plays and setting Indiana’s tempo expertly.
The team has lost a sense of its identity without Haliburton.
He is allegedly set to return to practice with his squad sometime this week.
That is obviously music to the ears of Indiana fans, who are hoping that the re-entry of Haliburton will bring the team’s re-entry to playoff contention.NEXT: The Pacers Are Again Talking About A Major Trade
