Open Game Thread #72: Pacers at Nets

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which makes the salient point that the playoffs begin tonight for the Pacers. Their two game series with the New Jeresey Nets this week is critical to their playoff hopes. Anything short of a sweep by the Pacers will make it tough down the road. This may be the last game without Jermaine O'Neal. Barring a setback, a return at home against the Nets seems plausible.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 96.0(3rd) 107.5(18th) 109.3(16th)
NJN 89.9(14th) 105.0(24th) 110.2(21st)


Projected Starters
PACERS pos. NETS
Mike Dunleavy F Richard Jefferson
Troy Murphy F Nenad Krstic
Jeff Foster C Josh Boone
Danny Granger G Vince Carter
Flip Murray G Devin Harris
