Pacers vs. Raptors, Game 5: Game thread, lineups, TV info and more

After leveling the series in Game 4, the Pacers return to Air Canada Centre for Game 5 against the Raptors.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers and Raptors return to action on Tuesday night for Game 5 of their first-round NBA playoff series.

While the numbers look even through four games, the final scores have all had double-digit differentials. As things tighten up in what is now a best of three series, effort on both sides of the floor should be high which should naturally add to the drama.

We saw Paul George get testy after the whistle with Jonas Valanciunas and DeMarre Carroll in Game 4. Who do you think will draw a dead-ball whistle for mixing it up in Game 5? DeMar DeRozan, C.J. Miles and Monta Ellis are among the players who have not had a big-time performance thus far. Who do you think will come up big in Game 5, whether it be one of those three or someone else?

Note the early tip time at 6 p.m. ET!
