Nets hope for 15,000 attendance, draw 11,332

From the New York Times, before the Nets played the Indiana Pacers at the Izod Center tonight:
But the promotion has prompted some fans to act. The team has sold 700 $10 seats so far and expects as many as 15,000 fans to show up for Tuesday’s game, around the season average.
From the New York Daily News, after the game:
Despite a desperate attempt to snap the team out of a franchise-worst season-opening slump by offering thousands of free tickets in an effort to create a winning environment, the Nets and their indifferent supporters both turned in one of their more lackluster performances of the season in a 91-83 loss to the Pacers. Only 11,332 fans showed up despite an offer of two free additional tickets to each season-ticket holder, a promotion dubbed "10 is Enough."
And those numbers were doubtful, given that announced attendance typically reflects ticket distribution rather than gate count.
