Indiana Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton is attributing the team’s quality start (7-6 record) to players having something to prove.

(via Steve Reed- Associated Press): 

“Everybody has something to prove,” Haliburton said. “Buddy and I got traded last year. Ben(nedict) feels like he should have been drafted higher. Jalen Smith got traded. Myles Turner, there’s always trade rumors with him. So we have a lot of guys who have a lot to prove and a lot of guys that are hungry.”
