The Indiana Pacers play the Toronto Raptors for the second time in three days tonight and will hope to recover from the tough loss they allowed on Wednesday.

Tonight the Indiana Pacers will look to rebound from their devastating Wednesday night collapse. They get their second crack at the Toronto Raptors in three days and will have extra motivation to win the second time around. The Raptors used a 11-0 run late in the fourth quarter to come back and win 119-118 in Toronto. This time the Pacers must play all 48 minutes.

The Pacers (31-20) have now gone 1-3 since the return of Victor Oladipo. They have struggled to run the offense around him and he has struggled to find much rhythm at all. Oladipo’s return unfortunately coincided with possibly the team’s toughest stretch of the season to date, but it’s only a matter of time before the chemistry will start to take shape. This team has shown resilience throughout the season, there is no reason to believe it will stop now.

Toronto (37-14) is now in uncharted waters. Their current 12-game winning streak is the longest in franchise history and as was shown Wednesday, they will fight tooth and nail to keep it going. As a team, they are second in defensive rating and fourth in net rating league-wide. Runs like the one they used to close out Wednesday are always possible with the stymieing defense they possess.

This game appears to be a coin flip, at least on paper. The Pacers home record (18-7) is exactly the same as the Raptors road record. Toronto is the third-best road team in the league this season so home court advantage becomes less involved. With T.J. Warren again sidelined with a concussion, the team will need better production from his typical wing partner Jeremy Lamb. An uptick in efficiency from the Feathery One would also be a welcomed sight.
