The good news is that the Nets only play the Pacers three times this season. The bad news is that the Nets have lost five of their last six games, with all five being double-digit losses against teams with losing records.

Indiana led for the final 45 minutes of Sunday's matinee at the Prudential Center, really taking control with a 13-2 run late in the second quarter. The Nets got to within nine a few times in the third quarter, but never made any sort of a threat, ultimately falling 105-86.

The Pacers shot 47 percent from the field, with six players in double-figures. The Nets shot just 42 percent from the field, 4-for-16 from 3-point range and 12-for-21 from the line. Devin Harris and Brook Lopez were their leading scorers at 13 points apiece.
