As always there will be key players to watch during this game such as Tyrese Haliburton who has been averaging twenty plus points and assists for Indiana , Austin Reaves who has been shooting at about forty nine percent while averaging sixteen plus points for Los Angeles as well as other notable players that could make an impact during this game such as Domantas Sabonis for Indiana and LeBron James for Los Angeles .
