Pacers get outscored 32-17 in the second quarter, so they trail by 3 at the half. Craig and Duarte are the only Pacers in double figures.
Nets living at the line (27 FTA) and competing on the glass well for their size. – 8:50 PM
Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
So many Pacers shots are half way down and then get spit back out by the basket in that first half. – 8:50 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Halftime: Nets lead the Pacers 58-55. Harden with 21, Durant with 18. Nets are getting to the line more and the defense picked up in the second quarter. However, KD and the Beard have 39 of BK’s 58 points. They can use some more help. Paul Millsap has been fantastic. – 8:49 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nets rally from down 16 to take a 58-55 lead over the Pacers into the half. Nets went on a 23-5 run in the 2nd quarter to come back. James Harden is 10-of-11 from the line in the first half alone. He had taken 15 total in his first 5 games of the season. – 8:48 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Half: Nets 58, Pacers 55
James Harden (21 PTS, 4 ASTS), Kevin Durant (18 PTS) and the Nets have erased a 16-point deficit. On their way to getting the lead, the Nets shot an absurd 27 free throws in just the second quarter. Brooklyn averages 18 free throws a game this season. – 8:48 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
11 first half free throw attempts for James Harden, that’s as many as he’s taken in the last four games combined. – 8:48 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nets have gotten the benefit of the whistle tonight. They’re 18-of-24 from the line tonight, matching their season-high in Philly. Pacers have picked up 15 fouls vs. just 8 for Brooklyn. – 8:46 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Officials are reviewing whether that foul on James Harden’s stepback occurred before the clock ran out. – 8:44 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
I’ve seen enough, James Harden is back. – 8:44 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
From @BKN_NETSPR: With 24 free throw attempts in the first half, the Nets have already matched their season-high for free throw attempts in a game (previously done on 10/22 at Philadelphia). – 8:44 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
23-5 run for the Nets and they’re ahead. Pacers can’t score, Nets getting to the line easily. – 8:41 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Knicks great Charles Oakley is at Barclays Center for tonight’s Nets vs. Pacers game. – 8:40 PM
Bill Herenda @billherenda
Love the touch pass by Kevin Durant Surprised if we won’t see more of that — As @gchiesaohmy says, “The ball moves, the scoreboard moves” – 8:40 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
The Nets have their FIRST LEAD of the game after trailing by as many as 16. – 8:40 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
James Harden hits a stepback 3 to give the Nets their first lead of the period. Harden is up to 16 points on 3/3 shooting from downtown. His turnovers are another subject, but it’s definitely Harden’s best shooting game this season. So far, at least. #Nets8:40 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Harden hits a stepback 3 to give the Nets their first lead of the night. He’s got 16, four and four on 4-for-6 shooting and is 5-for-6 from the line. This is the James Harden we’re used to seeing. – 8:39 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Nets getting back in the game with frequent visits to the foul line. Already 22 attempts; with 16 makes, they’re +11 there.
They had 40 and 35 in a pair of their meetings last season. – 8:38 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Nets on a 16-3 run, now within three of the Pacers with 4mins left in the 2Q. It’s been Harden and Millsap in the second. – 8:35 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Paul Millsap is cooking these bad closeouts. He’s leading this Brooklyn comeback. – 8:34 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Myles Turner has picked up his third personal foul with 6:28 remaining in the second quarter. – 8:30 PM
Bill Simmons @BillSimmons
Harden might get through this entire Nets season without breaking a sweat. He’s only 76 games away. – 8:28 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Myles Turner grabs an offensive rebound over Paul Millsap, then gets the and-one over Millsap. An embodiment of Nets issues in one play: No size for OREBs or rim protection. – 8:28 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Joe Harris turns the ball over shuffling his feet on the inbounds pass. That kinda night. – 8:27 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets on a run to cut the Pacers’ lead to six with 7:32 left in the first half. Joe Harris with a badly-needed 3, and Paul Millsap with five points in two minutes. – 8:25 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
The Nets are on a 10-0 run and have trimmed the deficit to 6. Brooklyn’s bench is beginning to step up. – 8:25 PM
Jeff Eisenband @JeffEisenband
Kevin Durant just detached Torrey Craig’s ankles from his body. pic.twitter.com/01KfYafrs98:22 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
The Pacers are outscoring the Nets 14-0 in second-chance points, 22-8 in the paint and 16-7 on the boards. That is not ideal. – 8:20 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Paul Millsap stops the bleeding with an and-one – 8:20 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Torrey Craig playing mad and getting it done at both ends. He’s 6 for 7 with 16pts and 4rebs with 9mins left in the 2Q. He’s career high is 22pts.
They signed him for defense and toughness. The offense is a nice bonus. – 8:20 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
open season on mauling James Harden right now. pic.twitter.com/CEJphfgNa28:19 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Meanwhile… Torrey Craig has hit 6-of-7 shots and has 16 points in nine minutes so far. Nets’ defense has allowed Indiana to shoot 58.1% so far. Pacers lead Nets, 46-30, with 9:15 left in second quarter. – 8:19 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Pacers have built a 16-point lead over the Nets with three of their best players (Malcolm Brogdon, Caris LeVert and TJ Warren) out due to injury. This is not a good performance by a Nets team open with its championship aspirations. It becomes less “early” every game. – 8:18 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Build around Torrey Craig – 8:18 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
When did Torrey Craig turn into Kawhi Leonard? – 8:18 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
The Pacers have pushed the lead to 16 and they’re doing whatever they want in the paint. – 8:17 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Pacers up to 11 assists in the 1st half so far to Brooklyn’s 5. As @Alex Schiffer pointed out right next to me, Pacers ball movement >>> Nets. – 8:17 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Pacers up to 6 offensive rebounds here in the game’s opening 13 minutes. The jig is up and fans are getting restless. – 8:16 PM
Dan Favale @danfavale
torrey craig might lead the league in untouched offensive rebounds since entering the nba – 8:15 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Another offensive rebound leading to second-chance points for a Nets opponent. – 8:14 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Great quarter for the Pacers as they lead the Nets 38-26 after one. Duarte, Craig, and Sabonis were excellent on both ends – that trio has combined for 27. – 8:11 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Nets trail the Pacers 38-26. Nets shooting over 43 percent or higher from the field and 3. Indiana is shooting 71 percent from 3 and 56 from the field. Bench hasn’t scored at all and the Pacers have been good in transition and at second-chance points. – 8:10 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
The Pacers are taking a 38-26 lead over the Nets into the 2nd QTR. Kevin Durant’s anklebreaker was the highlight of the period, but the Nets have been careless with the ball and have been bullied on the glass. Pacers attempted 6 more shots than Nets in Q1. Can’t win like this. – 8:10 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
End of 1st QTR: Nets 26, Pacers 38
Kevin Durant (14 PTS, 6-7 FG) James Harden (8 PTS, 2 3PM) and the Nets are recovering from another cold start. This is starting to get concerning. The Pacers came out shooting 71% from three and they’re outscoring Brooklyn’s bench 14-0. – 8:10 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Kevin Durant drops Torey Craig on a crossover and drills a 3. To quote George Costanza, “That was absolutely filthy.” – 8:08 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
KEVIN MAN TORREY CRAIG HAS A FAMILY!!!!!!! – 8:08 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Watching Torrey Craig fight defensively on KD is incredible – 8:07 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
MAN DOWN! KEVIN DURANT IS CAUSING MAYHEM! – 8:07 PM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
kevin durant. good heavens – 8:07 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Kevin Durant just went behind the back on a stepback that sent Pacers guard Torrey Craig crashing to the floor. Ankles snatched. KD just caught a body. – 8:07 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
This lineup of Bembry-Brown-Mills gives you energy, but you lose spacing and size. – 8:06 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
DeAndre’ Bembry creates an extra Nets possession just by wanting the ball more than the next man – 8:05 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Bruce Brown ain’t playing around, what a rejection 😳 – 8:04 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Bruce Brown with a monster chasedown block – 8:04 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Good, active minutes from Torrey Craig. Didn’t understand why he wasn’t played last game until the 4th, until after Anunoby went off.
Sabonis wanted them to come out with energy, fight & compete. They’ve done that — already 4 steals and as many transition pts (7) as last game. – 8:03 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Patty Mills is gonna feel that charge in the morning like a drunk purchase – 8:01 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
James Harden (8 PTS) is much more aggressive to start this contest, but his struggles taking care of the ball continue. He’s up to 3 turnovers. – 8:00 PM
Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
Theorem alert: Pacers take a double-figure lead at Brooklyn. Awfully bold strategy, tempting fate like that. – 7:58 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Why doesn’t KD shoot threes any more? 😔 – 7:56 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Three straight turnovers for James Harden, who has at least 4 in the first quarter alone. Not ideal. – 7:56 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Torrey Craig first quarter minutes. Carlisle has changed up his rotations today with some guys out. They’re up 7 early. – 7:55 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Back-to-back turnovers for James Harden give the Pacers a 19-10 lead here in the 1st quarter. Kevin Durant assumes ballhandling duties the following possession. – 7:54 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
James Harden with a giveaway right there. – 7:54 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Talked with Nets owner Joe Tsai today about Kyrie Irving among many things. “I hope that Kyrie can be part of the team, part of Brooklyn long term. But… I think we have an immediate question of whether he can play this season. And I hope he gets vaccinated as soon as possible.” pic.twitter.com/UvnFXig2lk7:53 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets trail the Pacers 13-10 with 6:37 left in the first quarter. James Harden just hit the Nets first 3, after Brooklyn missed three clean looks. – 7:51 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Good timeout by Rick Carlisle: Bad shots, like that attempted bank shot, will give the Nets opportunities to score in transition, like James Harden did on that stepback 3. Nets can take this game over in a flip of a switch. On them to decide when to turn it on. 13-10 Pacers – 7:51 PM
Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
It usually doesn’t turn out well when Sabonis starts dribbling the ball. – 7:49 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
James Harden and Blake Griffin had some sort of mishap. Harden throws the inbounds pass right away. Awful start to this one. – 7:48 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nets need a timeout. They don’t look war-ready to start this one. – 7:46 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Sloppy start for the Nets. – 7:46 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Blake Griffin is now 1/12 (8.3%) from downtown this season. Instead of shooting the open 3 on the last possession, he dribbled in and turned the ball over on an attempted pass to the corner. – 7:45 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers have several favorable matchups, and they’ve deliberately gone inside for their first four shot attempts.
Of course, Pacers have no matchup answer for KD at the other end. Holiday on him first. – 7:44 PM

Pacers announce that rookie forward Isaiah Jackson suffered a hyperextended left knee during the Pacers-Raptors game on Wednesday. He is considered week-to-week. – 7:33 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers rookie center Isaiah Jackson was diagnosed with a hyperextended left knee and is week-to-week. That’s much better than the Pacers first thought.
It happened last game in Toronto: fieldhousefiles.substack.com/p/jackson-side…7:32 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Things To L👀k Out For In The Nets vs Pacers Game:
▪The Nets’ average of 13 turnovers a game is good for the 7th most in the NBA.

▪Kyrie Irving & Nic Claxton are out for Brooklyn. – 7:02 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Caris LeVert spent a moment pregame with Mr. & Mrs. Whammy. Signed their poster and exchanged some words.
I caught up with him right after and asked him how he’s feeling: “I’m feeling good. Getting back to it.” pic.twitter.com/byz6w7rfNu7:02 PM

Ahead of tonight’s matchup at Miami on @espn, some notes on the @Charlotte Hornets 4-1 start:
Charlotte is averaging 121.2 ppg and totaled 606 points, both lead the NBA.
The Hornets 69 made 3s is tied for 5th in the NBA while their .413% 3-point field goal percentage is 1st #AllFly6:28 PM

Asked about Kevin Durant, Rick Carlisle says “Some people’s abilities are beyond words.”
He has the upmost respect for him, an all-time great. – 6:24 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
No Brogdon, LeVert, or Warren for this one means the Pacers are down their entire starting backcourt. TJ McConnell, Brad Wanamaker, Chris Duarte, and Jeremy Lamb will have to step up and make plays for themselves and others. Uphill battle ahead in Brooklyn. – 6:24 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Caris LeVert is OUT tonight for the Pacers, Rick Carlisle says. Getting closer, but not ready yet. – 6:22 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Caris LeVert (sore back) will not play tonight in Brooklyn (7:30pm tip). He’s close to making his season debut, and the Pacers are home for their next three games. – 6:22 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
No Nic Claxton for the Nets tonight against the Pacers. He’s sick. Unfortunate blow for Brooklyn, as he’s one of their most versatile defenders and has started games when healthy. – 6:16 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Here’s the injury report for today’s game between the Nets and Pacers.
Pacers could be without 5 players, including Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring), TJ Warren (concussion protocol) and Caris LeVert (sore back – questionable). pic.twitter.com/jSyK5yunSd6:03 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Steve Nash says,
“It’s hard to not use Kevin Durant. There’s the choice to use him and there’s just the ball finding Kevin Durant because he’s just so difficult to defend — He’s just so good that he inserts himself.” – 5:52 PM

“I’ve messaged him, we didn’t talk basketball — Just checked in on him.”

⁃Steve Nash on Nicolas Claxton.” – 5:50 PM

Joe Tsai tells ESPN he hopes Kyrie ‘gets vaccinated as soon as possible,’ how they haven’t spoken since Nets decided to move forward until he’s vaccinated, how he hopes Kyrie is still a part of Nets’ long term and how protestors were ‘hijacking the issue’ espn.com/nba/story/_/id…4:15 PM

Steve Aschburner @AschNBA
Some teams look at a 24-year-old NBA rookie and wonder “Why?”
The Indiana Pacers looked at Chris Duarte and asked “Why not?”
That No. 13 spot in the lottery is looking pretty lucky based on Duarte’s role and contributions five games in.
