While there have been signs of life of late, including an improved effort on the road in Toronto, the Pacers still came up empty down the stretch and lost to a Raptors' team minus starters Kyle Lowry and Amir Johnson. Not the stuff of a team ready for a deep playoff run.
They should expect a desperate Atlanta team as the Hawks try to hang on to the final playoff spot in the East with the Knicks applying pressure just one game back.
