The Indiana Pacers traveled to Brooklyn to face the Nets in a battle of win streaks. Paul George returned after sitting out last night with the flu. The Pacers jumped out to a 17-11 lead to start the game thanks to a big start from David West, but once he took a seat, the offense came to a halt. The Brooklyn Nets went on a 16-1 run to open up a back and forth game, with advantage going to the Pacers 49-46 after winning the second quarter 28-19.
Lance Stephenson left the game early with an injured right foot and is done for the night, a spoiler to his return to his home. David West has 15 on 6-9 shooting to lead the Pacers, getting 10 points and six rebounds from Paul George and seven points from Gerald Green. Deron Williams leads the Nets with 14.
