The Indiana Pacers are averaging the most points in the NBA this season and star point guard Tyrese Haliburton doesn’t see his group slowing down anytime soon.

The Pacers are scoring 126.5 points per game. They also lead the NBA in offensive rating (122.2).

“We’re one of the best offenses in the NBA and we don’t plan on slowing down on that end,” Haliburton said, via Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files. “If we get stops, people don’t want to run with us. It’s tough to sustain for 48 minutes so we just gotta keep doing that on a nightly basis and taking it one game at a time. We’re getting a lot of love and a lot of hype from people nationally and locally. That can be a poison in a sense. You got to let it go in one ear and out the other and continue to do what we do.”
