The Indiana Pacers flipped the script once again on the Toronto Raptors, exploding in the fourth quarter by using a 30-5 run to open the final quarter to cap off a Game 6 blowout to force a decisive Game 7 in Toronto on Sunday. The Pacers slogged through the first half, but scrapping their way to a 44-40 halftime deficit. In the second half, George Hill and Monta Ellis opened the game up, pushing Indiana to a 31-20 third quarter victory.

Indiana outscored Toronto _-_ in the fourth, getting help from Rodney Stuckey of all sources, who had eight points and four assists, including two threes. Paul George came to life in the second half to lead all scorers with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Myles Turner was big for the Pacers victory as well, scoring 15 points on 6-11 shooting with nine rebounds and four blocks.

Indiana struggled with Cory Joseph and DeMarre Carroll, who each had 15, but held Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan to 18 combined points on 7-27 shooting. As mentioned, Game 7 will be Sunday as the Pacers return to Canada for one last time.
