Pacers Too Much for Undermanned Nets

In a game of runs, the Pacers had one too many for the Nets, as they pulled away in the fourth quarter to clinch the best record in the NBA. Missing Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin, the Nets got Richard Jefferson's worst performance in over a month. Jefferson scored only 11 points on 4 of 8 shooting, and committed 7 turnovers. The Nets committed 18 turnovers overall, while the Pacers only turned the ball over 5 times. Ron Artest, Jermain O'Neal and Al Harrington all scored 20 or more points and grabbed 7 rebounds for Indiana, while Rodney Rogers led the Nets with 15 points and Jason Collins picked up a double-double.
