Pacers Links: ‘Fall Break’ gives Pacers a chance to get healthy

The Pacers had no mercy for a Nets team suffering similar injury issues on Monday night, using their unexpected back court depth to run Brooklyn into the ground.

The missing playmakers on both sides was readily apparent in a sloppy, clank-filled first quarter, but then the Pacers put a 20-2 run on the Nets to start the second quarter, fueled by the energy and scoring of two-way point guard Naz Mitrou-Long which seemed to lift the whole team’s effort.

The back court competition seemed to spark Aaron Holiday, as well who went on to have a career night with 24 points and 13 assists.
