Less than 24 hours after earning a big home win over the Kings, the Raptors (36-14) return to the floor and saw a three-game win streak come to an end as they fell 110-106 to the Pacers (32-15) in their lone visit to Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season.
It was an emotional game for the Pacers, who saw their captain Victor Oladipo suffer what is likely a season-ending knee injury in the second quarter . Through the emotion, Indiana came together to earn a four-point win in a game that came down to the wire.
Tonight's game was the third and final meeting between the two teams - Toronto wins the series 2-1 after winning two games Scotiabank Arena. Indiana, who has now won 18 of its last 23 games, earned a statement win over an Eastern Conference contender.
