Brook Lopez scored 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter and also finished with nine rebounds to help the Nets win their season-high sixth straight game.

David West had 27 points to lead the Pacers. Paul George added 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Gerald Green also scored 15 points.

Green made two free throws against his former team to give Indiana a 67-55 lead - its largest of the game - with 5 1/2 minutes remaining in the third quarter.

Brooklyn pulled to 75-69 by the end of the third, and began the fourth on a 26-8 run to take a 12-point lead on C.J. Watson's jumper with 2:08 remaining.

The Pacers were outscored 28-11 in the fourth quarter as they shot just 3 for 22 from the field.

After Ian Mahinmi gave the Indiana a 77-73 lead with 10:56 remaining in the game, the Pacers did not score again until Green's two free throws with 6:41 left. They didn't make a field goal until West's basket with 4:45 remaining.

The Nets took a 27-18 lead on Williams' 3-pointer with 47 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Brooklyn then struggled in the second, shooting just 9 for 25 (36 percent) as the Pacers took a 49-46 halftime lead.

NOTES: The starting lineups were announced in Russian as the Nets celebrated ``An Evening of Russian Culture.'' Brooklyn's owner Mikhail Prokhorov is Russian. ... Damion Jones was signed to a 10-day contract by the Nets. He is Brooklyn's first NBA D-League call-up of the season. Jones played for the Nets in 2010-11 (25 games) and 2011-12 (7 games). ... Lance Stephenson, who starred at Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, started for the Pacers but only played the first six minutes before injuring his right foot. ... Gerald Wallace was inactive for the Nets with bruised ribs.
