Pacers Can Clinch Third Seed In Playoffs With Win Against Nets

Last updated on Friday, April 12, 2013

(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will clinch the third-seed for the upcoming NBA playoffs if they beat the Brooklyn Nets tonight at Bankers’ Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers have lost both meetings against the Nets this season, including an 89-84 overtime defeat on February 11th.

George Hill scored 27-points during the Indiana's 20-point, fourth quarter comeback over the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday, a much needed victory after a grueling two loss weekend.

The Nets have won four of their last five games, including Wednesday's 101-93 victory over the Boston Celtics at Barclay's Center.

All-Star point guard Deron Williams was injured for Brooklyn's last game against the Pacers but scored 22 points with 9 assists during the season's first contest between the two teams.

Tipoff in Indianapolis tonight is at 7:00.
