Brook Lopez scored 25 points and the Brooklyn Nets opened the overtime session on a 9-3 run to pull away from the Indiana Pacers, 89-84, in Indianapolis on Monday night.

The Nets won for just the second time in six games despite playing without injured guard Deron Williams. Joe Johnson added 17 points, and Reggie Evans had 22 rebounds.

Elsewhere: Byron Mullens had 25 points and 18 rebounds, and the host Charlotte Bobcats defeated Boston, 94-91, to snap the Celtics' seven-game winning streak. . . . Luke Ridnour scored 21 points, Ricky Rubio added 13 and 10 assists and the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 100-92. . . . Ryan Anderson scored 31 points as the New Orleans Hornets beat the Detroit Pistons 105-86 in Auburn Hills, Mich.

New look for Warriors

Golden State plans to wear the NBA's "first modern short-sleeve jersey" - i.e., a high-tech T-shirt - for three of its remaining home games this season. The Warriors announced Monday that they will debut the alternate uniforms at home against the San Antonio Spurs on Feb. 22. The team will also wear the jerseys for home games against Houston on March 8 and Chicago on March 15.

Uniform maker Adidas says the jerseys feature "the first-ever super lightweight stretch woven short with maximum ventilation for player comfort." The important part: the shirt has "armhole insets with 360-degree stretch fabric that facilitates free range of motion for the arms and shoulders."

If it catches on, look for short sleeves on other NBA teams next season.
