Recap

Indiana Pacers 116, Brooklyn Nets 79

The Indiana Pacers were without Aaron Holiday (thigh contusion) and T.J. Leaf (sore left knee), but they still managed to throttle the Brooklyn Nets behind 22 points from C.J. Wilcox and 21 from Georgetown product Henry Sims

Thanks in part to those two, the Pacers shot an efficient 48.8 percent from the field and 44.8 percent from three. 

That wasn’t the case for the Nets, who found twine on just 40.8 percent of their field-goal attempts and finished with more turnovers (19) than assists (18).
