The Nets' lottery odds are now set in stone. They will have a 25 percent chance at the No. 1 pick after picking up loss No. 68 in Indiana on Saturday night. The Nets led the entire first half, but they couldn't stop the Pacers after the break. Indiana quickly took the lead after halftime, took control with a 15-4 run late in the third, and the Nets never threatened after that. They shot 53 percent from the field, but turned the ball over 19 times and allowed the Pacers to shoot 54 percent. Six Nets were in double-figures, led by Brook Lopez, who finished with 20 points. Terrence Williams had another strong game, scoring 15 points, grabbing eight boards and dishing out seven assists. Troy Murphy led the Pacers with 25 points and nine boards.
