The Brooklyn Nets put the longest current winning streak in the NBA, 7 games, on the line Friday at Barclays Center against the Indiana Pacers.

Two of the hottest teams of late in the NBA collide at Barclays Center Friday night when the Brooklyn Nets — owners of the NBA’s longest current winning streak at seven games — take on the Indiana Pacers, who just had a seven-game win streak snapped on Tuesday.

The Nets (15-18) matched the longest winning streak in the franchise’s Brooklyn era with a 96-93 road victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. The Nets also won seven straight from Jan. 2-15, 2013.

The Pacers (20-12) have lost their last two, including a 99-96 road loss to the Toronto Raptors Wednesday night.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Joe Harris finished a drive with a floating bank shot with 43 seconds left and Spencer Dinwiddie made a game-saving steal with 2.3 seconds to go to help Brooklyn hold off the Bulls at United Center.

Dinwiddie led the Nets with 27 points. Jarrett Allen went for 16 points and 12 rebounds and Harris finished with 11 points and four assists.

Bojan Bogdanovic‘s long 3-pointer with one second left Wednesday was off target — although the NBA did determine after the fact that Bogdanovic was fouled by Toronto defender OG Anunoby. Toronto took the lead on Fred VanVleet‘s 3-pointer with 26.4 seconds remaining.

Victor Oladipo scored 20 points with four assists for Indiana, while Myles Turner finished with 10 points, 14 rebounds and five blocked shots. Domantas Sabonis added 12 points and 10 boards and Darren Collison also dished out four assists.

The teams came to the NBA as part of the merger with the ABA in 1976, with the Nets just 72-105 against the Pacers since then. In the ABA, the Nets were 37-44.

Indiana has the longest winning streak in the series at 10 straight from Nov. 17, 2009, to Feb. 16, 2012. The Pacers have also won the last eight meetings with Brooklyn.

The longest streak for the Nets was seven games from April 10, 1982, to April 17, 1983.

The highest scoring game overall by a team in the series was the New Jersey Nets in a 147-138 win at East Rutherford on Oct. 30, 1985, in a game that took three overtimes to decide. The Nets’ highest total in regulation came in a 140-131 loss at Indianapolis on Oct. 18, 2017.

That game also represents Indiana’s top total in the series. The Pacers have the most lopsided win between the teams, a 124-92 win at Indianapolis on Jan. 28, 2011. The Nets’ largest margin came in a 115-86 victory at East Rutherford on April 10, 1982.

John Williamson has the individual scoring mark in the series with a 50-point outburst at Indianapolis on April 4, 1978. Indiana’s best individual total was 43 from Jalen Rose at East Rutherford on Oct. 30, 2001.

Since moving to Brooklyn, the Nets are 7-16 against the Pacers. Deron Williams has the high individual game with 33 points at Indianapolis on April 12, 2013.

The largest margin of victory since the Nets move was a 110-85 win by the Pacers at Indianapolis on Dec. 27, 2014. Brooklyn’s largest win was a 123-111 victory at Indianapolis on March 21, 2015. Oladipo’s 38 on Dec. 23, 2017, at Indiana is the highest total by a Pacer against Brooklyn.
