The 2017-18 season is now underway and has already featured a few entertaining games to start the campaign.

One of which was a high-scoring offensive showing that saw the Indiana Pacers top the Brooklyn Nets 140-131 on Wednesday night in a game that did not require overtime. According to Michael Pina of Vice Sports, this turned out to be the game with the highest pace of play in quite some time.

It was a game that saw the Nets notch more than 30 points in each quarter while the Pacers recorded 75 points in the second half, including 41 points in the third quarter alone. Indiana had a well-balanced offensive attack with eight players finishing in double figures while each member of their starting lineup notching at least 14 points.

The Pacers also recorded 28 fastbreak points along with holding a 66-52 edge in points scored in the paint and hit 52 percent of their attempts from the field. Meanwhile, each team went to the free throw line 32 times which only increased the amount of points poured in on the night.

Although the Nets and Pacers are two teams not considered to be title contenders, it was more indicative of the modern NBA with each team favoring small-ball lineups for the vast majority of the contest to create more offensive production. This is a trend that should only increase as the 2017-18 season rolls along.
