The first-ever NBA game in India did not disappoint!
The Indiana Pacers topped the Sacramento Kings, needing overtime to complete a major comeback.
Their newly acquired forward TJ Warren put on a show with 30 points, including a massive 3-pointer that sent the game into OT. Buddy Hield did the majority of the damage for the Kings with 28 points, but couldn't find the bottom of the net on a game-tying 3-point attempt that would have forced double-overtime.
