Nets Blow Out Pacers, Move Up to Seventh

The Nets took care of business Wednesday night at the Meadowlands. They led the Pacers (who were without Jermaine O'Neal) from start to finish, building an 11-point lead by the end of the first quarter and never looking back. The Nets shot 55 percent from the field, including 12-22 from downtown and assisted on 34 of their 40 field goals. Meanwhile, Indiana shot just 35 percent. Josh Boone recorded his first ever double-double with a career-high 22 points and 10 boards and Bostjan Nachbar added 20 points. Eddie House left the game with a concussion after being fouled by David Harrison late in the second quarter. With the win and with Orlando's loss in Boston, the Nets now hold the seventh seed in the East, a half game ahead of the Magic and two games ahead of both Indiana and New York.
