This is one of those games the Nets should feel lucky to win. They never really played great the entire game, they hung around mainly because the Pacers aren't very good, and they have a terrible defense. I watched the game while packing for Florida and while it was close it was never really exciting enough to warrant my full attention. I thought the Nets lead was secured when they were up 7 with a little under 3 minutes to go, but they blew the lead and the Pacers were going to extend the lead after taking it bt Danny Granger one of the best foul shooters in the NBA missed some big free throws down the stretch and the Nets hung in there, down 1 on their final possession. The play they called on this possession was questionable, they had Vince just holding the ball near the sideline then he passed to Devin and he didn't have much time to do anything with it and he took a jumper from about 18 feet straight away and wouldn't you know it went in for Harris' 1st career game winner. An exciting ending to an otherwise mediocre game. The Big 2 for the Nets stepped up again as Harris, in addition to the game winner, contributed 29 points and 11 assists, while Vince had 38 points and 8 boards. These 2 are the key to any success the Nets have this year, and they stepped up again.
