Friday April 6, the Indiana Pacers arrive at Air Canada Centre to face their host the Toronto Raptors. The Pacers enter on the second night of a back to back after hosting the Golden State Warriors Thursday.
Toronto finishes a tough stretch of games having played the Celtics twice including a back to back set versus the Cavaliers and Celtics on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Last season, the Raptors won two of three games and have replicated that feat through the squads three previous games this campaign.
The Pacers hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 47 of their 84 matches.
With the hardest closing schedule the Pacers have impressively continued to win versus stiff competition registering a 6-4 record in their last 10 games. The loss to the Denver Nuggets ended a five game win streak.
Technically the Pacers are still vying to gain a home court seed, however with the Sixers winning 12 in a row it seems unlikely.
Following the game versus Toronto the Pacers will finish the season with a home and home set versus the Charlotte Hornets.
Victor Oladipo continues to lead the way for the Pacers and will likely win Most Improved Player this season. As he captains the team into the postseason his squad could be the dark horse in the East.
Indiana like Toronto have no major injuries to the roster.
Tension was palpable at the Air Canada Center Wednesday given Toronto lost back to back games for the first time since mid January and had won just three of their last eight games.
Worse, Toronto’s top five ranked defense had seemingly disappeared and pundits suggested the squads confidence was gone.
With the win DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry and arguably the best bench in the NBA illustrated their confidence and ability were only on temporary hiatus.
Holding the Celtics to a season low 78 points with 32 percent of those points generated at the free throw line it was a virtuoso defensive performance by the Raptors.
The fright inflicted by recent competition was a good reminder for the Raptors who’ll focus on defense to finish the season and need just one more win (or a Celtic’s loss) to make things official.
