Article Summary:

I’m not sure exactly what I expected from Thompson when the trade was announced, but it was nowhere near what he delivered in his week in Indy, which would be his only week with the Pacers, as Rick Carlisle revealed following the game.

But from a teammate, non Xs and Os perspective, Thompson was huge in facilitating the trade by supporting Tyrese Haliburton who was shocked and hurt by being dealt in just his second season.

Prior to the tip, Thompson could be seen dapping up all of the starters as they made it to the floor and then working his way down the bench to hype of the coaches and reserve players. Of course, he and Haliburton worked well together including a lob from the second year guard that had Thompson rolling back the clock and finishing with a dunk that seemed to surprise everyone involved.
