Johnson scored 17 points and Tyshawn Taylor had four of his 12 in the extra session for the Nets, who improved to 4-0 in overtime games this season. Reggie Evans collected 22 rebounds as Brooklyn recovered from a 25-point home loss to San Antonio less than 24 hours earlier.

George Hill led the Pacers with 22 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter. Leading scorers Paul George and David West combined for just 12 on 3-for-21 shooting, West missing most of the first half with a scratched eye.
