Nets no match for Pacers

See also

The Brooklyn Nets offered little resistance to one of the league's best teams Saturday night.

The Indiana Pacers dominated the second half en route to a 105-91 win. Lance Stephenson buoyed the Pacers, scoring 23 points, grabbing nine boards, and dishing out seven assists. The Pacers shot 54 percent from the field.

While the Nets managed to shoot 47 percent, they received no-shows from several stars. Joe Johnson and Kevin Garnett combined to score only 11 points.

The Nets failed to build any momentum following their win Friday night at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Nets will now face stern tests in both the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, with both games coming on the road.

Although the Nets competed against the Pacers, the reality is the Nets are just not as good a team. The Pacers showed why they boast a record of 24-5.

Indiana management constructed a physically imposing team, one that features size and speed. Paul George and Stephenson possess multifaceted attributes that make them lethal even when not scoring.

The Pacers should emerge as one of the two teams in the Eastern Conference finals.
