Following their loss to the Celtics, the Nets defeated the Hornets in their most recent game. They’ll try to keep the momentum going by defeating the Pacers, which would be their sixth win in their last seven games.
Ben Simmons (calf) had six points (3-4 FG), six rebounds, seven assists, and four steals in 21 minutes against Atlanta on Friday.
Simmons had missed the previous four games for Brooklyn due to a strained left calf, and he was limited to 21 minutes upon his return. That didn’t stop him from making an impression in the box score, as he did a little bit of everything and finished with a solid all-around line.
The Pacers struggled on the road, but they are back at home, where they have won three of their last four games. They’ll try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Nets, which would be their fourth in five home games.
This game is questionable for Myles Turner (hamstring), James Johnson (elbow), and Isaiah Jackson (knee). Jalen Smith (knee) is considered probable. Chris Duarte (knee) and Daniel Theis (ankle) have been sidelined indefinitely.
Due to right knee soreness, Isaiah Jackson has been upgraded from questionable to out for Friday’s game. Goga Bitadze and Terry Taylor could see extended minutes in his absence. Jackson’s next opportunity to play comes today against the Nets.
