Here’s a game clip of Nets-Pacers from NBA.com:
A strong defensive effort and timely buckets propelled the Brooklyn Nets to a six-game winning streak after they defeated the Indiana Pacers, 97-86, at the Barclays center on Sunday.
Brooklyn trailed by as much as 12 in the third quarter and were down six, 75-69, heading into the fourth. The tide began to change in favor of the Nets when they went on a 26-8 run that saw the team outscore the Pacers, 27-11, in the last quarter. The Pacers shot only 3 for 22 from the field. Deron Williams performed well for the Nets with his 22 points and 9 assists. Williams’s performance was complemented by that of his backcourt mate, Joe Johnson, who finished the game with 20 points. We shouldn’t overlook the contributions of Brook Lopez, who scored 10 of his total 15 points in the pivotal fourth quarter after he asserted himself as an offensive threat inside the paint and on the perimeter. David West led Indiana with 27 points. The victory over the Pacers is an impressive one for the Nets, who are playing some of the worst teams in the NBA as of late. Indiana had come into the game on a four-game winning streak and was a game better than the Nets for third place in the Eastern Conference standings. I hope the Nets can keep the good vibes going when they take on the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.
Injury Note: Gerald Wallace sat out the game with bruised ribs.
