Brooklyn (29-22 SU, 22-26-3 ATS, 22-28-1 O/U) is coming off a tough two games, falling at home to San Antonio, 111-86, getting 2.5 and at Washington by 15. Indiana (31-20 SU, 28-23 ATS, 21-29-1 O/U) fell at home to Toronto in overtime on Friday, 100-98 giving 7. That broke a 15-game home winning streak. The Nets need a strong performance after their last two games but they may be better off on the road after getting booed on Sunday against the Spurs. But having Joe Johnson, who scored 19 points and Brook Lopez, who had 18 against the Spurs, will help. The Nets match up well against the Pacers and shouldn't be a nearly double digit dog in this one. Indiana also fell apart down the stretch in a 11-point loss at Brooklyn on Jan. 13. Nets PG Deron Williams scored 22 points and dished out nine assists in the Jan. 13 encounter. Expect a Nets cover and a bounce back.
