Indiana Pacers at Brooklyn Nets Prediction
The Indiana Pacers are playing for a loss in their final game of the season. The Brooklyn Nets are looking for the opposite, as they continue their push for the 7th seed in the east.
Indiana simply won’t have the firepower and will be turning to most of their young and two-way players like Gabe York to get them in-game experience as the team builds for next season. The Nets have won their last three games.
