The Pacers play their second game in as many nights when they face the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday evening. Indiana ran their win streak to five game with a late-afternoon win over Cleveland on Tuesday. The Raptors are also wrapping up a back-to-back set as they ended 2013 with a win in Chicago last night.

The Raptors are not the same team the Pacers beat in early November when Rudy Gay came out on fire to fuel a strong Toronto effort which pushed the Pacers to a hard-earned 91-84 win. For one thing, Gay is now in Sacramento as Toronto looks to rebuild on the fly.

Rebuilding doesn't mean losing for the Raps, though. They are currently 7-2 in their last nine game and sitting atop the struggling Atlantic Division which would make them a potential second-round playoff opponent for the Pacers if the playoffs started today.

The dynamic three-guard lineup of Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and Terrence Ross should give their Indiana counterparts a strong test. No doubt, George Hill, Lance Stephenson and Paul George will look forward to the matchup.

Former Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough is averaging just over five points and five rebounds per game in a reserve role, although he's seen his minutes diminish a bit in the rotation of late.
