Al Bello

Joe Johnson's jumper sent the game into overtime, and Brooklyn eventually pulled out the win despite a poor shooting night in Indianapolis.

The Brooklyn Nets outlasted the Indiana Pacers and came away with a signature overtime win on the road, 89-84, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday night.

Joe Johnson's bank shot jumper with 13 seconds left sent the game into overtime, and the Nets capitalized on the extra time.

Brook Lopez had a game-high 25 points for the Nets (30-22) on 8-of-19 shooting from the field while adding eight rebounds and two blocks. Reggie Evans had a monstrous night on the glass, grabbing 22 rebounds in addition to eight points and two blocks of his own.

George Hill led the Pacers (31-21) with 22 points, six assists and four rebounds. Indiana struggled to find any rhythm on offense and shot just 34.4 percent from the field and a pedestrian 5-of-22 from the three-point line.

Both teams shot poorly in the second half, as Brooklyn was just 37.8 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from the three-point line. Indiana shot 38.5 percent and just 16.7 percent from deep. The Nets led by as many as nine in the latter half before heading into the extra period.
