"I contribute, I do what I can, but we have a lot of different guys who can contribute and tonight was a total team effort," Haliburton said. "We just want to keep building on that."
Jalen Brunson returned to the Knicks' lineup after missing Thursday's loss to Dallas due to a sprained right ankle and scored 39 points.
"It was a game-time decision," Brunson said. "When I feel that I can do the things I do, making sure I can go out there and be who I am for as long as I am out there, when I feel that type of confidence, that is when I know I'm ready to play."
Alec Burks returned to New York as part of a deal with Bojan Bogdanovic from the Detroit Pistons before Thursday's trade deadline. Burks, who was with the Knicks from 2020-22, scored 22 points and Bogdanovic scored all 11 of his points in the first half of his New York debut.
"We're short-handed and we're going to have to play a lot harder and a lot tougher," Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I'm disappointed in the result, but I'm not disappointed in our team."
Neither team was able to extend a lead beyond five points in a tight first half. The Knicks led by a point at 51-50 when the Pacers went on a six-point run to take a lead they never relinquished.
Indiana led 61-58 at the break and extended its lead to nine points at 79-70 on a 3-pointer by Obi Toppin with 4:36 left in the third quarter.
The Knicks closed within six before Haliburton hit a long 3-pointer just before the buzzer that gave the Pacers a 91-82 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
Toppin opened the final quarter with a 3-pointer and the Knicks were never able to get within single digits the rest of the way.
"We played with a little more of an edge. Tyrese was being special and I had my imprints on the game," Turner said. "It was an all-around team win and we asserted ourselves more when it needed to be done."
Jackson's three-point play extended Indiana's lead to a game-high 22 points, 114-92, with 5:40 remaining.
