The last time the Indiana Pacers played on the road they were trying to halt their season-opening winless streak. This time they're trying to maintain a winning streak while keeping the New Jersey Nets winless on the season.

Jim O'Brien has no plans to change what has been working, which means Danny Granger will continue to start at power forward, creating an interesting matchup with Josh Boone which might force Lawrence Frank to consider using Edward Najera and/or Chris Douglas-Roberts more than usual. Also, Pike's own Courtney Lee appears fit and ready to return after missing the past four games. So the Nets have options to go small and run with the Pacers, which means the Pacers must show up and play with the relentless energy and focus they've talked about in order to extend the winning streak to five.

For a New Jersey perspective, Nets Daily and Nets Are Scorching have you covered.
