The Pacers remain on the road on Friday night when the visit the Brooklyn Nets for the only time this season.
After losing their last two games (in excruciating fashion), the Pacers relinquished the label of ‘hottest team in the league’ to the Nets who are riding a seven-game winning streak. That streak includes wins over Toronto, Philadelphia and the Lakers. So yeah, the Pacers will face a different foe than they did in the first week of the season when they beat the Nets 132-112 at the Fieldhouse.
The key to the Nets recent success has been the emergence of a veteran reserve unit with Jared Dudley, DeMarre Carrol and Ed Davis supporting Spencer Dinwiddie off the bench. Makes for a solid matchup with the Pacers who rely on a similar formula to win games.
