The Indiana Pacers struggled to slow down the sizzling Toronto Raptorslast night and thanks to the home-and-home slot on the schedule the two teams get to do it all over again tomorrow night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Last week in discussing the difficulties facing Tyler Hansbrough whenever he returns, Jim O'Brien mentioned how at this time of year most teams have refined their games and are playing at a higher level. The Raptors fit that description perfectly, having won five straight and 15 of their last 20.

Meanwhile, the Pacers are still sputtering along, working through various tweaks to the playing rotation while staying small. One thing is for sure, the small ball +/- has taken a hit over the past three games.

After the jump, more links of interest from the loss last night.
