The Pacers remain in third place in the East despite stumbling on Friday. The Nets arrive with their own problems, after losing three of their last four games including a Sunday night loss at home to the San Antonio Spurs. The Nets present plenty of matchup problems for the Pacers but the home team catches a break with Deron Williams sitting out the game to rest an ankle injury. But despite the big names in the backcourt and D-Will's past success against the blue and gold, Brooklyn has become center Brook Lopez's team which puts the focus on Roy Hibbert to try to neutralize the matchup in the middle.
