Toronto
Indiana

[INDIANA] — The Indiana Pacers played host to the Toronto Raptors last night and the homeside took care of business. A 108-90 win has the Pacers and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Indiana's record up to 38-40 on the season, while the loss drags Toronto's down to 47-31. Though a win's a win and Pacers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Paul George leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 35 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 40 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - George included - and the most important part is that the Pacers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, DeMar DeRozan did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Raptors. DeRozan's 27 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Indiana's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Raptors, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Pacers will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Pacers will be a date with the Milwaukee Bucks while the visiting Raptors will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Detroit Pistons.
