Pacers Travel To New Jersey In Search Of First Road Win Of Season

Last updated on Wednesday, November 12, 2008

(EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ) The Indiana Pacers look for their first road win of the young NBA season as they face the New Jersey Nets tonight at the Meadowlands.

The Pacers evened their record at 3-and-3 with a 107-99 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder Monday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The win was the second in a row for the blue and gold with the first win coming over the Nets on Saturday at the fieldhouse.

New Jersey is 2-and-4 and has lost its last two games.

The Nets are coming off a 99-94 loss to the Heat Monday night in Miami.

The Pacers practiced on Tuesday before flying out to New Jersey for tonight's game with the Nets.

Center Rasho Nesterovic returned to the practice court after missing four games with an ankle injury and could be ready for tonight's game.

Troy Murphy did not practice and did not make the flight to new jersey.

Murphy was in the hospital receiving an IV as he battles a stomach virus.

The Pacers hope he will be able to travel today and be available against the Nets.
