The Pacers return to action against the Nets at the Fieldhouse feeling plenty good about themselves after winning their last three games.
Big contributions from key players, Paul George, Jeff Teague and even Monta Ellis in the last outing, has provided a winning foundation Nate McMillan hopes his team can continue to build on against the Nets on their home floor.
The Nets have lost eight of their last nine games as they play through injuries to guards Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Jeremy Lin. Sean Kilpatrick killed the Pacers off the bench early in the season at the Barclays Center, so the Pacers shouldn't be caught exhaling at this point.
The Pacers will be without Rodney Stucky (hammy) but otherwise remain healthy. This may be why Vegas has the Pacers favored by more than 10 points. The W is there for the taking, hopefully the Pacers will rise up and snag it.
