Nets Vs. Pacers Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The New Jersey Nets will try to get back on the winning track Wednesday night when the Indiana Pacers come to town.

It won't be an easy task considering how bad the Nets (16-35) have bad all season and how surprisingly efficient the Pacers (29-19) have continued to be.

New Jersey has lost six of its last seven and barring a miracle of epic proportions, will miss the playoffs for fifth straight season.

This will be the fourth and final meeting between the two teams this season, with Indiana having won the previous three rather easily.

Deron Williams will need to have a big game for the Nets to stay in this one, which is hardly news. Williams has averaged 21.8 points and 8.2 assists per game, leading the team in both categories.

The one difference tonight will be Brook Lopez, who was absent in the first three games with the Pacers. He will have to contend with Roy Hibbert in the paint.

Indiana is a tough team to play because so many different players can hurt you. The Pacers don't really have a superstar on the squad, but between Paul George, Danny Granger, David West and others, they can cause matchup problems all over the court.

TV: YES

Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
