Open Game Thread #56: Pacers at Nets

Two in a row is there for the taking. Hopefully, the same team shows up. Danny Granger will need to lead the way tonight. Can't count on Dunleavy for another 34. 20 plus from both Dun and Granger will do the trick. Here's Bruno's Scouting Report with a look at the success of a the bigger starting lineup the Pacers have used lately. Starting both Murphey and Foster allows the Pacers to go small with Kareem Rush and Marquis Daniels coming off the bench. Rush has been awesome off the bench. If they could just get some consistency from Shawne Williams and Quisy, life would be great.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 96.2(3rd) 106.3(19th) 108.4(16th)
NJN 89.7(17th) 104.0(25th) 109.5(21st)
