According to Tim Bontemps of ESPN, the Pacers achieved the most impressive shooting half of any team in the NBA playoffs in the past 25 years.

In their impressive 130-109 victory, they concluded the game with a shooting percentage of 67.1 percent, which stands as the highest ever recorded in NBA postseason history.

One person on social media jokingly responded with “Jinx lol.”

Another person straightforwardly pointed out, “You cursed them.”

One more person confidently predicted, “This is why the Knicks are getting cooked and about to lose.”

Stephen A. Smith is the perfect candidate to endure the agony of witnessing the Knicks’ defeat in a crucial Game 7 at Madison Square Garden.
