The Pacers are back home after a 1-2 road trip that had promising moments but was ultimately frustrating.
That’s what happens when the team was +28 over the three third quarters which had them in position to win, only to go a combined -41 over the three fourth quarters which let two of the three games slip away
So now the Pacers are home to try to keep tabs on James Harden and Kyrie Irving who are playing at an incredible level while Kevin Durant remains out of the lineup. While the Nets aren’t physically imposing, they are so potent that the Pacers have to play their best to be in position to win this one.
Brooklyn smoked the Pacers in their last meeting in February. Yes, the final difference was 10 points, but the game was decided early, highlighted by Kyrie pouring in 35 points. The Nets have won 13 of their last 14 games while the Pacers are 2-7 going back to the unscheduled week off they had due to opponent COVID issues. So, yeah, the Pacers are due to win and the Nets are due to lose. LET’S GO!!!
