Despite jumping out to a quick lead, the Indiana Pacers lacked any sort of rhythm with ball movement and rebounding, allowing the Toronto Raptors to jump ahead 32-23 early in the second quarter. But led by the second unit, Indiana responded with a 15-2 run behind big play from Danny Granger and Luis Scola to take a 44-40 advantage into halftime. Indiana allowed just 14 second quarter points after Toronto scored 26 in the first. Turnovers were an issue for both teams, but Toronto's 13 allowed the Pacers to score 13 points off of the turnovers.
Roy Hibbert leads Indiana with 10 points on 4-6 shooting with Granger playing great bringing some hustle along with nine points. All nine Pacers have scored despite poor shooting nights so far from David West (1-5) and Paul George (1-6). DeMar DeRozan leads Toronto with 12 points.
