The Brooklyn Nets are coming off of a very professional victory over the Toronto Raptors. When the Nets face the Indiana Pacers, they’ll be taking on what many see as a wounded dog – damaged, but very dangerous.
The Nets were excellent in their last match against the Toronto Raptors. By bypassing the Toronto rim-protectors and focusing on creating for others, the Nets converted on 18 of their 45 three-point field goals.
Brooklyn will want to do the same against the Pacers. Indiana is first in the league in blocks per game – though Myles Turner is out and accounts for many of those. They are still well drilled defensively and will take it to Brooklyn should they relax.
Mike James went OFF for the Nets in the fourth quarter.

Newly acquired guard Mike James may not come with an exciting resume or a flashy highlight reel to excite the masses, but to Steve Nash’s pleasure the new point guard provides a steadiness that the Nets bench unit sorely lacked.
In his last game against the Toronto Raptors, James was excellent. He contributed 11 points and eight assists, scoring all 11 of his points in the fourth quarter.
Kyrie Irving has been carrying most of the offensive load for the Nets this season. If James can continue his production, it can only aid the Nets in their efforts moving forward.
The Indiana Pacers are barely holding on to their place in the Eastern Conference table. If their defensive form from their last game carries over, they’ll be very nervous as the season comes to a close.
The Pacers lost their last game, a matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers. In that match the Pacers were missing their regular core, exacerbating their defensive issues. Allowing the Blazers to convert on 20 of 35 three-point attempts was Indiana’s downfall.
Brooklyn presents similar threats to the Blazers from the perimeter. If Indiana want to steal a victory in this matchup, they can’t afford to let the Nets score at will.
Keeping Up With The Canadians ??
Oshae Brissett | vs. Portland
— NBA Canada (@NBACanada) April 28, 2021
There questions abound when the Indiana Pacers decided to sign Oshae Brissett, but the Canadian has more than proved his worth under head coach Nate Bjorkgren.
Brissett is relentless on the court, averaging 15.6 points and 9.4 rebounds over his last five games. Always an energy player, Brissett’s 2.6 three-pointers on 44.8% are a welcome wrinkle to his game.
He’ll have his greatest test yet when he draws Kevin Durant as his defensive assignment in this game. With Indiana’s stars out, he’ll have to show that he’s a two-way threat against the best.
