2010 Summer Game Thread #2: Indiana Pacers vs. New Jersey Nets

The summer versions of the Indiana Pacers and New Jersey Nets play tonight in the Orlando Summer League.

For the Pacers, all eyes remain fixed on the rookies as we see if Lance Stephenson can follow up his phenomenal debut with another solid effort against the Nets who will be able to throw a little more size on the 19-year-old rook trying to learn the point guard position. Gabe Pruett offers a little more size although isn't nearly as stout as Stephenson. However, Terrence Williams played plenty of PG for the Nets last night and checks is a little bigger than Born Ready. TWill should be a tough matchup at both ends, so hopefully he's matched up with Stephenson quite a bit to make things as challenging as possible.

It's summer league, remember? Time to go to school, if need be.

Paul George looked more comfortable late in the game yesterday so hopefully he'll bring that type of game from the opening tip.

Leave your thoughts and observations in the comments. I'll be watching this one late thanks to Little League practice so keep me posted. Rosters after the jump and note that Thomas Heurtel was wearing number 51 yesterday, not 7.
