Nets vs. Pacers: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

The Pacers look for their third win over the Nets this season and second within the past week.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers return to the Fieldhouse for a Christmas Eve Eve matchup against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.

This will be the third of four games between the Pacers and Nets this season, with the Pacers holding a 2-0 advantage thus far, including a 109-97 win in Brooklyn last Sunday. As usual, Victor Oldadipo led the way to the W in Brooklyn with 26 points and 7 rebounds, while Domas Sabonis and Corey Joseph combined for 32 points off the bench.

The Nets snapped their four-game losing streak on Friday by rolling past the Wizards, 119-84 (!). So while the Nets will be playing on a back-to-back, they were able to spread the minutes around to 11 players to minimize the strain on any one player before heading to Indy.
