The Indiana Pacers are off to an impressive start to the season.
Over the first 11 games of the season, the Pacers have a 7-4 record as they are the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference right now.
Tyrese Haliburton has undoubtedly been the glue that has held the team together.
As of now, Haliburton has averaged 24.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 12.5 assists per game on incredible shooting splits.
So much so that Haliburton is on track to become the first player in NBA history to average at least 20 points and 10 assists per game while maintaining 50/40/90 shooting splits, as revealed via StatMuse on Twitter.

Apart from his incredible scoring and assist averages, Haliburton is also shooting 52.8% from the field, 43.6% from downtown, and 93.2% from the free-throw line.
These are incredible numbers, but they are definitely tough to maintain throughout the course of a regular season.
Considering Haliburton earned the first NBA All-Star appearance of his career last season, he is on the path to earning the second NBA All-Star selection of his career this year.
Haliburton signed a five-year, $260 million contract extension with the Pacers earlier this year.
However, only $205 million is guaranteed money for the 23-year-old guard.
Either way, Haliburton has emerged as one of the best young players in the NBA right now.
If he can continue playing at this level, the Pacers may become one of the dark-horse candidates to make a deep playoff run in 2024.NEXT: Tyrese Haliburton Has Surprising Source For His Basketball Knowledge
