Conference rivals the Toronto Raptors and Indiana Pacers take to the court for their first meeting of the 2017-18 regular season. In the offseason backup point guard Cory Joseph landing in Indiana and sharp shooter C.J. Miles came to Toronto. Miles won’t play Friday as he flew home to be present for the birth of his first child.
Last season, Indiana won the season series 2-1 and holds the all-time record having bested the Raptors 46 to 35.
Toronto entered week six as arguably the hottest in the Association, but a loss in the Mecca ended their four-game win streak. It was an odd game in that the Raptors looked fully in control in the first half.
Then Toronto scored a measly ten points in the third quarter and allowed the Knicks to put up 41 points. The Raptors went on a strong run in the final frame getting within six points, but ultimately weren’t able to claw their way completely back.
Normal Powell returned to the lineup playing with the reserve unit. His performance was a mixed bag with the wing man hitting 75% of his treys but showing a little rust via turnovers.
While in New York Delon Wright saw a specialist and got confirmation he won’t require surgery on the same shoulder which kept him out of action for six months last season.
Toronto rank second in points scored off turnovers (19.0), fourth in points in the paint (47.2) and ninth in fast break scoring (12.3). Expect Toronto to be aggressive defensively to augment this triad of offensive accomplishments while attempting to shut down Indiana’s perimeter and slow the Pacers in transition.
Three full days rest for the Pacers with practice time affords Indiana an edge coming into the match. The Pacers have won five of their last six games including their last outing versus the Magic.
In the win Victor Oladipo was exceptional producing 29 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and a career-high seven steals.
The hometown product continues to excel as a starter boasting a team high 22.9 points per game. With a renewed focus Oladipo has raised his level of play with the Pacers posting career bests in several categories including points, rebounds, free throws as well as shooting efficiency from both the field and perimeter.
He took a shot to the head but is listed as probable as is Myles Turner who tweaked his ankle versus the Magic.
Indiana boast the league’s top ranked three-point efficiency (40.4%), yet rank 24th in attempts. A key for the Pacers will be to force pace and get out in the fast break where the Pacers rank second in the league

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Indiana boasts a few Raptors killers, namely Bojan Bogdanovic and Myles Turner. Still, the Raptors seldom put up back to back poor showings and their depth is superior to the Pacers.
Indiana has the rest edge, but an 18th ranked defense will have trouble stopping the 4th ranked offense. Furthermore, Toronto’s 13th ranked defense is bloated based on an early tough schedule.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Under
The key number for Toronto will be limiting Indiana to 103 points (the average score in their last five losses).
