THE STORY: Game Preview.
1-1! Good stuff! A hard fought win against the Knicks brings the Nets up to a .500 record and we’ll take it! Before we get into everything else it would be silly of me not to mention the fact that Caris Levert is averaging 27.5 ppg over the first two games of the season, tying him for 12th in the NBA with ... Kawhi Leonard. Love to see it. Anyway it’s a new day and that means a new opponent, this time it’s the Indiana Pacers.
The Pacers are 1-1 as well after a win against the Grizzlies and a loss to the Bucks. They’re looking to lock down one of those top four seeds in the Eastern Conference this season and could meet that goal. They have the horses.
Both of these teams are coming off of back-to-backs, so there’s no real competitive advantage to be taken, just some tired players. Of course, the Pacers slept in their own bed last night. Let’s get into it.
