PODCAST: Haliburton returning, All-NBA considerations, Celtics' TV voice Drew Carter, Oscar Tshiebwe
A jammed-packed Pacers podcast explaining Tyrese Haliburton's situation, his planned return — and then two interviews I think you'll enjoy.
On this episode of the Fieldhouse Files podcast, the Pacers went 3-1 on their homestand with wins over Philadelphia and Phoenix. The team is battling the injury bug and Tyrese Haliburton is expected to return Tuesday at Boston. And to preview that matchup, I’m joined by Drew Carter, the Celtics’ new TV voice on NBC Sports Boston. Plus, Oscar Tshiebwe discusses his rookie season and being added to the G League Up Next Game.
Among the items discussed on this episode:
Haliburton plans to play in Boston on national TV.
His hamstring injury and why he must play in 32 of the final 35 games in order to qualify for All-NBA and being eligible for a huge escalator in his new contract.
What I’ve been told about his two fringe games in question.
12:05: Drew Carter on his broadcast career, the Celtics’ season and dominance at home, and facing the Pacers again.
36:47: Oscar Tshiebwe on learning he would be involved at NBA All-Star Weekend, informing his mom first, his rookie season, splitting time between the Pacers and Mad Ants, wanting to “dominate” on the court and learning from Haliburton and Turner.
