Nets Beat Pacers 103-94 with the Arrival of Brook-Lin PnR
What a tremendous victory for Coach Atkinson, Jeremy Lin, Brook Lopez and the Nets!
Nets Beat Pacers 103-94 in the first home game behind a complete game by Jeremy Lin (21pts/9asts/9rebs) and Brook Lopez 25pts/5rebs/1ast. Sean Kilpatrick and Grieviz Vasquez also provided the necessary offensive punch from the bench to start a run
What got the Pacers in the trouble is the huge number of fouls drawn by Jeremy Lin starting from the 1st quarter. He drew 3 fouls in the 1st quarter alone against 3 players. This resulted in Pacers getting foul trouble in early 4th quarter with 8 min left. Every foul got 2 Free Throws and it certainly lessened the Pacers defensive intensity.
What a great display of team effort and lethal execution of Pick-and-Roll by Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez to get the Nets going after a slow start!
Congratulations for the gritty Brooklyn Nets! This game would no doubt validated Jeremy Lin as a complete Point Guard with his all-around performance.
