BROOKLYN — The Pacers are hurting.

It was evident in the first half against the Nets Wednesday in Brooklyn. Indiana was outscored 62-30 and trailed by as many as 36 early in the third quarter before staging something of a comeback in a 104-94 loss.

For the first time this season, Indiana at 12-13, falls below .500. The Pacers have lost four straight and six of their last seven games.

With Kyrie Irving and James Harden leading the way, Brooklyn held Indiana to 25% shooting in the first half. Irving had 35 points and Hardin finished with 19 for the Nets.

Domantas Sabonis led the Pacers with 18 points and nine rebounds.

Indiana has a quick turnaround. They play the Pistons in Detroit Thursday.
