The Raptors and Pacers meet again.
On Wednesday, the Raptors defeated the Pacers in Toronto to win their 12th consecutive game, setting a franchise record. It was a wild contest that went back-and-forth, ending with the Raptors going on an 11-0 run to close the game.
Serge Ibaka was the hero, as his 3-pointer over Domantas Sabonis with less than a minute left turned out to be the game-winner.

The Raptors will look to continue their streak on Friday, this time in Indiana, where the Pacers have been a tough opponent all season long. Whereas the Pacers are 13-13 on the road this season, they're 18-7 on their homecourt.
The Pacers will be hungry for a win as well. Not only did they let Wednesday's game slip through their fingers, they are currently riding a three-game losing streak, tied for their longest of the season. With a loss on Friday, the Pacers would have the same record as the 76ers in sixth place of the Eastern Conference standings.
