The Brooklyn Nets (2-3) are hosting the Indiana Pacers (1-4) on Friday night

The Brooklyn Nets are struggling to find any kind of consistency this year. They laid an egg against the Miami Heat after looking like their old selves against the Washington Wizards.

They might have an opportunity against another scuffling squad — the Indiana Pacers. After losing their first two games by a point each, the Pacers have lost their last two by double digits. There was a win sandwiched in between, but Indy has looked shaky through five games.

Former Net Caris LeVert could make his season debut in the Barclays Center on Friday night. He’s currently dealing with a sore back, but he’s listed as questionable on the injury report.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know for this matchup between struggling Eastern Conference squads.
