It didn’t take long for the Brooklyn Nets to pick up their first win of the 2016-17 NBA season and for Kenny Atkinson to taste that head coach winning feeling in the league. Both happened with the Nets knocked off the Indiana Pacers by the final of 103-94 on Friday night at the Barclays Center.

Brook Lopez led the way with 25 points on a very efficient 10-of-18 from the floor. Jeremy Lin finished just one rebound and assist shy of a triple-double (21 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists).

Perhaps the biggest jolt of energy came from Sean Kilpatrick who nailed consecutive three-pointers in the fourth quarter, one that saw Brooklyn outscore Indiana 31-15.

For the Pacers, Paul George led the way with 22 points.

Brooklyn will have a quick turnaround as it’ll travel to Milwaukee tonight in anticipation of facing Jason Kidd‘s Bucks on Saturday night.
