The Pacers bounce up to Canada in an effort to end their current losing streak which may require a change to the playing rotation.

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers have been ravaged by a heavy diet of Western Conference competition but they take a break on Friday night when the play the Toronto Raptors, currently the top team in the Eastern Conference.

The Pacers appear to be in the enough-is-enough zone which often delivers a dedicated effort worthy of a win to end the current six-game losing skid. Frank Vogel should be changing up the starting lineup with his team desperately seeking a spark that doesn't arrive with the reserve unit after the starters have created a double-digit hole.

The Raptors will be without their star wing player, DeMar DeRozan who is sidelined with a strained groin. The Raptors are 3-3 since DeRozan was forced out by injury and will obviously help the Pacers on the defensive end against a team that has given them fits of late.
