NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets aren’t good enough to win four games in a row just yet.
They were embarrassed on their home floor by the lowly Indiana Pacers 110-85 Saturday night at Barclays Center. The Nets (13-16) dropped to 12-3 against sub-.500 teams. They were booed by the subdued crowd on occasion.
They did not win because they could not score. The Pacers (11-20), who had lost by 10 in Detroit Friday night, cannot score either, but they can defend. The Nets shot 36.4 percent. They were outscored 48-28 in the paint.
Player of the game: Rodney Stuckey posted 20 points, eight assists and six rebounds.
Stat of the game: The Nets had nine turnovers in the third quarter. After starting 4-for-4 from the field, they missed 25 of their next 31 shots. Their bench shot 5-for-32 from the field.
Play of the game: Kevin Garnett blowing in David West’s ear, of course.
Up next: The Nets face the Sacramento Kings Monday night at home.
