Needing a win in the most desperate way possible, the Nets went into Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis tonight and fended off, in overtime, an Indiana Pacers team that had only lost four other games at home so far this season. Both teams were missing one of their top players (Danny Granger for the Pacers and Deron Wlliams for the Nets) which led to a low-scoring and slowly-paced affair.
Like they did last night at home against the Spurs, the Nets started the game off hot, going up by a score of 20-13 after the first quarter. Brook Lopez put his imprint on the contest early on, scoring 10 points in the first 12 minutes en route to the 25 points he would score on the game. However, the next quarter wouldn't be nearly as good for Brooklyn as the first.
Indiana, taking advantage of yet another lackluster Brooklyn bench p...

As soon as a good team begins to struggle, rumors start flying about potential trades that could help “save” their season. In the social media, it’s pretty easy for some of this speculation to catch a lot of wind and make a lot of people believers in something completely hypothetical.
