Dave Sandford

The Indiana Pacers overcame 19 turnovers, a 17-4 deficit in points off of turnovers, and a physical, talented Toronto Raptors team with a 16-4 run in the last six minutes of the fourth quarter to finish off a double digit come back, getting their season opening win on the road.

George Hill scored the team's final three points, hitting the game winning floater as part of his 8 point and 7 assist night, but it was David West who carried the Pacers on his back throughout the entire run.
