Jrue Holiday Erupted For A Career-High 51 Points Against The Pacers

Jrue Holiday scored a career-high 51 points against the Indiana Pacers in one the NBA’s highest-scoring games this season, 149-136. The often overlooked and underrated Milwaukee Bucks starting point guard is averaging 19 ppg, 5.0 rpg and 7.3 apg for the season.

Holiday was hot from the get-go and ended up making 20 field goals throughout the game, making just three 3-pointers along the way. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo was also hot as he torched the Pacers with 38 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists, which included a monster dunk over Indiana center Jalen Smith.

The Bucks are currently the number one seed in the east and they are actively trying to secure home-court advantage throughout this year’s playoffs at the end of the season. 

The Pacers were led by sensational rookie Ben Mathurin, who scored 29 points in the loss.
