Game Preview: Game 79: Brooklyn Nets @ Indiana Pacers

12 Apr

 

Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn NetsThe Nets are in Indiana tonight to take on the three seed in the Eastern Conference, Indiana Pacers. After a fantastic blowout win in Boston, the Nets are going into Indiana for another very tough road game. Indiana, one of the top teams in the East, has consistently been good all year, led by All-Star Paul George.

Who? Brooklyn Nets (46-32) vs. Indiana Pacers (49-29)

When? 7:00 PM Eastern

Where? Bankers Life Fieldhouse – Indianapolis, Indiana

Where do I watch? YES Network/NBA League Pass

The Nets only chance to move up in the standings before the end of the season is to pass Indiana for the number 3 seed. To do so, the Nets need to win tonight, and the rest of the games this season. The Pacers also must go 1-3 the rest of the way for Brooklyn to move up. If the Nets were to move up, they would face the New York Knicks in the first round.

In other news, Gerald Wallace is again out with a leg contusion and Keith Bogans is a game-time decision. Also, this morning, the Nets extended Kris Joseph’s contract through the end of the year, as well as next year. This makes Joseph playoff eligible.

Prediction:
Tough game for Brooklyn tonight, but they will rise up to the occasion in a must-win game if they want the 3 seed. Brooklyn wins, 103-91.
