The Brooklyn Nets were opposed the challenge to set the Indiana Pacers to their first lost of the season, and they failed. The Indiana Pacers star player Paul George scored twenty eight wins in Saturday night’s ninety six to ninety one win. Defense in the final seconds was key for Indiana as they stopped Joe Johnson from scoring a three to tie the game in the final seconds. The Pacers franchise extended their best win record in history by becoming 7-0 on the season.
The Nets are now riding a two game lost streak after losing to both the Wizards and Pacers in close ball games. The Nets are falling quickly in the standings as they now sit at 2-4 in the early NBA season. Joe Johnson and Deron Williams were the key assets to being able to contend with the Pacers after scoring seventeen points.
