New, comments

The Nets remain winless in 2010 after another double-digit defeat, this one to the Pacers at the Izod Center Friday night. It was a one-point game midway through the second quarter when the Pacers went on a 15-0 run to take control. They led by 20 at the half and by as many as 22 in the third quarter before settling for a 16-point win. Indiana, led by Danny Granger's 28 points, shot 53 percent from the field and 13-23 from 3-point range. The Nets were led by Brook Lopez, who scored 27 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Yi Jianlian added 17 and 10, while Devin Harris finished with 22 points and nine assists. The newest Net, Kris Humphries played 27 minutes, finishing with 15 points, eight rebounds, two steals and a block. The Nets have now lost their seven games in January by an average of 16.6 points. A group of arena critics led by Daniel Goldstein of Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn tried to parade a banner through the stands but were stopped by security guards. The banner read: "Ratner Trashed the Nets So He Could Trash Brooklyn".
