Brooklyn Nets vs. Indiana Pacers Post Game Recap
Final Score: Nets 117 Pacers 109
The Brooklyn Nets picked up a big win on Friday night against the likely third seed in the Eastern Conference in the Indiana Pacers. The win by Brooklyn guarantees that in just their first season in their new home the Nets will have home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
As it has been most of the second half of the season the Nets were led by Point Guard Deron Williams, and the win against the Pacers was in large part due to the great play from Williams. Williams scored a game-high 33 points on 10 for 23 shooting to go along with 14 assists. 20 of Williams points came in the second quarter making it the third time this season that he has scored 20 or more points in a quarter. Williams was unable to finish the game however, as in the final minute he hurt his left knee, and was forced to leave the game with a limp to the locker room.
