[box] The Nets tried to rebound from the horrible overtime loss in Washington last night with a measuring stick game at home against the Pacers but once again they came up short in crunch time.

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett got into quick foul trouble in the first quarter and it hurt the Nets.  Shaun Livingston and Alan Anderson played well off the bench in the first half to offset the foul trouble.

Rookie Mason Plumlee brought energy and excitement in his 15 minutes of play scoring six points, grabbed three rebounds and blocked two shots.

Deron Williams scored 17 points and dropped 10 assists to rebound from his pathetic game in Washington while Joe Johnson scored 17 points to keep the Nets in the game.

The battle of the big men turned out to be very close as Brook Lopez scored 16 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked four shots while Roy Hibbert scored 15 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked three shots.

Paul George scored 24 points and David West added 18 points along with the game-clinching free throws late.

The new point of emphasis for the league this season is calling illegal screens and it hurt the Nets pretty bad as they were called for four of them.

[quote_box]”Everybody wants to win so bad. … We can’t get frustrated. We’ve got to stay together and we’ll figure this thing out.” Pierce said. “Offensive rebounds, turnovers late, late in games who the ball is going to go to. … We’ll figure it out. This is the kind of road trip that can turn things around for us. [/quote_box]

KEY STATS: The Nets gave up 20 second chance points and it ultimately cost them the win.[/box]

[box]NOTES: Brooklyn became the first team to shoot over 40 percent on the Pacers this season by shooting 46.1 percent for the game in the loss.

NEXT UP:  The Nets are headed to the west coast to take on the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night at 10:00pm and the game can be seen on YES.
