The Indiana Pacers take their four-game winning streak on the road when they play the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center.

The Pacers have put up some horrific performances on the road against the Nets including last April when they had their last bad loss before finishing the season on a run. But playing in the blah atmosphere in a New Jersey arena with little life can do that to a team. The atmosphere in the Barclays Center should be much more lively and have the Pacers attention to lend more focus to the game.

That is if there are enough healthy players to make it happen. Hard to believe Paul George will be ready to go after missing Saturday night's win over Charlotte but hopefully the rest did him well. We know the Nets will be without Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams is also questionable so neither team will feel sorry for the other as far as not being able to play at full strength.

Playing well on the road is the next great challenge for the Pacers. Their effort against Boston and Atlanta recently left plenty to be desired and hardly compared to the way the team has played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Plenty of room for growth from this Pacers team and finding a way to win in Brooklyn tonight would be a good sign moving forward.
