Pacers capture a 3-1 lead over Bucks

The Indianapolis Pacers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 126-113 on Sunday, April 28, to take a commanding 3-1 lead in their playoff series.

All five starters for the Pacers scored 13+ points, with center Myles Turner leading the Pacers in scoring with 29 points, followed by guard Tyrese Haliburton with 24 points. Turner, as a center, shockingly led the game with three-pointers made, shooting 7/9 from beyond the arc, which accounted for 21 of his 29 points.

The Bucks were forced to play without star players Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who both missed Game 4 with injuries. While three of Milwaukee's starters recorded 20+ points, Brook Lopez (27), Khris Middleton (25), and Micheal Beasley (20), their efforts were not enough to stop the Pacers from capturing Game 4.

Lopez, Middleton, and Beasley were not just the only players to record 20+ points but the only Bucks who recorded double-digit scoring, which played a crucial factor in their 13-point loss. Milwaukee hosts Game 5 on Tuesday, April 30 at 9:30 p.m. EST, hoping to capture a victory at home and avoid the Pacers advancing to the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.
