Pacers vs. Raptors, Game 2: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

After grabbing home-court advantage with a Game 1 win, the Pacers have a chance to seize full control of the series with a win in Game 2 at Air Canada Centre.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers and Raptors continue their first-round playoff series on Monday night with Game 2 in Toronto.


Paul George and the Pacers will have to put forth another elite effort to put themselves in position to win late considering the Raptors already have their backs against the wall at home.


The key will be how DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry bounce back from a frustrating Game 1. Paul George appeared to do a solid job keeping DeRozan away from his scoring sweet spots, but DeRozan dismissed the defense, just blaming himself for a poor shooting night. Actually, he sounded like he was trying to convince himself that was the only problem.


It should be another great matchup between the two All-Stars. Also, the Raptors may adjust by starting or at least trying to play DeMarre Carroll more to guard Paul George.


TV NOTE: The game will be televised nationally on NBA TV, but locally the broadcast will be on FOX Sports Indiana with NBA TV blacked out.
