In their last visit, the Pacers shook off a three-game losing streak to run past the Nets 118-108 for their first win of the season. That started a 7-1 run that came to a grinding half over the weekend when the opponent strength increase at the same rate as the number of players on the injury list.
So now the Pacers will try to shake off back-to-back losses when visiting Brooklyn, but will still have to do so without Malcolm Brogdon and Edmond Sumner for sure. Jeremy Lamb and T.J. McConnell remain questionable along with new injury list addition, Domantas Sabonis. The Pacers could use one or all of the game-time gang to give it a go with a nice stretch of off days following the game.
The Nets are at home after completing a five-game road trip with a 2-3 record. Caris LeVert broke his thumb during the trip and is out, while Kyrie Irving is questionable while dealing with a shoulder issue. Would only seem sporting if the Nets kept Kyrie out for this one.
