All-Star reserves Domantas Sabonis and Tyrese Haliburton will headline tomorrow's matchup between the Kings and Pacers.

The NBA today announced the list of reserves who will play in the 2023 All-Star Game in Utah. Two of those players are Domantas Sabonis of the Sacramento Kings and Tyrese Haliburton of the Indiana Pacers.

Sabonis earned his third All-Star selection after averaging 18.8 points, 12.3 boards, and 7.1 assists per game. His consistent play has steered the Kings to the third-best record (29-21) in the packed Western Conference. With Sabonis and De'Aaron Fox leading the charge, the Kings have a huge chance this season to make the playoffs for the first time in 16 seasons.

Sabonis tallied a double-double of 34 (season-high) and 11, to go along with four assists, two steals, and two blocks to help the Pacers beat the Spurs the other day and snag their second win in a row.

Meanwhile, the Pacers are coming off a close loss to LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. The positive sign for Indiana was the return of Haliburton.

Hali came back following a 10-game absence and picked up where he left off before his injury. He registered 26 points and 12 assists against the Lakers. For the season, the Pacers' star point guard is averaging 20.2 points, 10.2 dimes, 4.0 boards, 1.8 steals, and 3.0 triples. 

Indiana has been struggling, losing their previous four games and 11 of their last 12. If Haliburton can replicate those numbers tomorrow against the Kings, the Pacers have a chance at ending their four-game slide and getting back on the winning side of things.

Catch the All-Star play of both Sabonis and Haliburton tomorrow live at 8:00 AM on NBA TV Philippines, available via Smart LiveStream and Cignal Play.
