It’s an old ABA matchup with the Nets against the Pacers. Both teams will be on the second night of a back-to-back in their third game of the season.
The Nets got off to a fast start in their season opener in Detroit but faltered down the stretch, perhaps due to a lack of depth.
Allen Crabbe missed the game after becoming a father and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson didn’t play due to a pulled muscle he suffered in China way back in early August. Crabbe will be back for this game and Hollis-Jefferson reportedly may too.
DeMarre Carroll remains out after undergoing a procedure on his right ankle. He doesn’t have a clear timetable for his return yet. Shabazz Napier missed the opener with a hamstring injury but I’ve got a feeling he’ll be good to go in this game too.
So the Nets should be a different team in this game than they were on Wednesday. Caris LeVert matched a career-high with twenty-seven points in that game and Spencer Dinwiddie dropped twenty-three and six assists.
The Nets are deep in the backcourt with those two, Joe Harris, D’Angelo Russell and Napier. Jarrett Allen and newly-acquired Ed Davis provided some good shot-blocking and rebounding on the defensive end. The Nets feel like a playoff-caliber team in the East.
They will be outmatched in this game against Indiana. The Pacers slugged the Grizzlies in Indianapolis on Wednesday and will go to Milwaukee for a tough little division matchup against the Bucks.
It’s going to be draining to go against Giannis Antetokounmpo all night but the Pacers have the added advantage of the home court in this game.
Myles Turner is fresh off of a four-year, $72 million extension just before this season began. That’s going to be a bargain for Indiana, as Turner is as good as any big in the conference, if you ask me.
I see a lot of Al Horford in Turner’s game, a thankless tough guy underneath with more athleticism and offensive skills than Horford had at his age.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction: it’s close but the Pacers win in the fourth.
I just don’t see the Nets fading out of many games this season, especially not in a spot like this when both teams will be a little weary.
