Round 1, Game 5 - Nets vs. Pacers - Tuesday, May 2, 7:00

This is the game both sides want to win desperately, the one that puts the winner a victory away from closing out the series. The Pacers are hurting, with Peja Stojakovic and Jamal Tinsley doubtful, Stephen Jackson among the walking wounded and Jermaine O'Neal suffering from the flu. It's up to the Nets to take advantage of the situation. With the game at home and both Vince Carter and Nenad Krstic playing at the top of their game, the Nets are in as good shape as they have been since Game 1.
