Nets Fall to Pacers Again

Missing Devin Harris for the third straight game, the Nets didn't get much offensively from anyone other than Vince Carter Wednesday night at the IZOD Center, falling to the Pacers, who were playing without Danny Granger, for the second time in five days. Carter did all he could, scoring 28 points on 11-of-21 shooting and dishing out seven assists, Jarvis Hayes was the only other Net to really contribute offensively, as the rest of the team shot 36 percent from the field. The Nets also turned the ball over 18 times (five by Bobby Simmons), resulting in 25 Indiana points. Trailing by 10 after three, the Nets made a brief run to cut the Indiana lead to five early in the fourth, but that would be as close as they got. In Granger's absence, the Pacers had six players in double figures and shot 47 percent from the field.
