What's happening: The Pacers beat the Bucks 120-98 last night to win their best-of-seven series.

  • Obi Toppin led the team with 21 points and eight rebounds off the bench.

💭 Arika's thought bubble: T. J. McConnell may not have led the stat line but he was the difference maker in last night's game, making some key plays and bringing an energy that electrified Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

Flashback: The last time the Pacers escaped the first round, they nearly went all the way.

What's next: The Pacers play the Knicks in the second round.

  • Game 1 is Monday at 7:30pm in New York.
