The Nets will have to wait at least another day before they pick up their first win of the season after falling to the Pacers, 91-83, Tuesday night at the IZOD Center. Indiana scored the first nine points of the game and led by as many as 16 in the first quarter. The Nets cut double-digit leads down to four late in the second, to five late in the third, and to six with less than three minutes to go in the game, but could never get to within one possession. After allowing 28 points in the first nine minutes, the Nets' defense tightened up, but they shot just 37 percent on the other end. Brook Lopez (26 points and 15 rebounds) and Chris Douglas-Roberts (27 points and 12 boards) each had double-doubles, but the other three Nets starters shot just 6-22 from the field.
