The Pacers will try to build a little momentum on the road this weekend, starting in Brooklyn on Friday.

The Pacers are off on their first roadie of the year, stopping in Brooklyn on Friday night to play the Nets.

After an exciting overtime win at home to open the season on Wednesday, the Pacers will hope to deliver another quality effort to earn another win on the road. With a game scheduled for Saturday in Chicago, the Pacers have to focus on the task at hand and avoid getting tripped up by the Nets.

Aaron Brooks is reportedly healthy and cleared to play, which would be the only major change in the playing rotation for the Pacers. That, assuming C.J. Miles remains in the rotation after making the most of his opportunity on Wednesday.

Thad Young was an underrated nice story from opening night, just for his ability to advance the ball up the court after a rebound. He will return to Brooklyn where he played the past two season.
