The Nets head into Indiana Friday night to take on the Pacers, who own the best record in the NBA and the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Nets will likely be without Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin, both of whom will probably rest on the second night of a back-to-back for precautionary reasons. The road team has won each of the three close games in this series thus far this season. For the Pacers, Ron Artest is averaging 20.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.6 steals in his last 9 games. With a win, the Pacers would clinch the best record in the league, and home court through the Finals.
