The 6-pack:

  1. This is the second game of a home and home this week. In the first game Wednesday night Toronto (37-14 SU, 28-21-2 ATS) was down 10 points with 2:27 to go in the fourth quarter. They held the Pacers scoreless the rest of the way and Serge Ibaka drained a 3-pointer with 30 seconds left for a 119-118 Toronto victory that continued a franchise-record 12-game winning streak. The Raptors have had 13 games this season where they faced double-digit deficits and came back to win.
  2. Ibaka had a season-high 30 points along with 7 rebounds and 3 assists, Kyle Lowry had 32/8/10 and Pascal Siakam had 25/9/5 to lead a balanced scoring attack by the Raptors.
  3. The Raptors 37-14 record is a franchise best to start the season. The last time they lost was 105-104 in San Antonio on January 12th. They have won nine road games in a row and have covered in eight of the twelve games in the winning streak.
  4. Indiana (31-20 SU, 27-21-3 ATS) started the season 20-9 but has struggled of late while dealing with injuries in addition to being without star guard Victor Oladipo who is now back in the lineup.
  5. With Oladipo out since January 23, 2019 with a ruptured quad tendon the Pacers have been led by free-agent acquisition Malcolm Brogdon and first time All Star Damantas Sabonis. Brogdon had a team high 24 points on Wednesday night and Sabonis had a triple double with 15 points 11 rebounds and 10 assists. However, the Pacers fell apart in the face of the Toronto defensive pressure and blew a 19-point lead.
  6. Oladipo has been struggling to regain his rhythm since returning from the injury but he told reporters “I feel like I played a little better (Wednesday), …especially defensively.” T.J. Warren has been out for the last few games while waiting to clear concussion protocol after sustaining a head injury.
