The Pacers finish their regular season series with the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday when the two teams meet for the fist time this year at the Fieldhouse.
Even without Kyle Lowry, the Raptors have handled the Pacers in both meetings north of the border. Along with Lowry, valuable reserve forward P.J. Tucker (sore knee) is questionable.
While the Pacers still wait for Glenn Robinson III (calf) to return, the team will have Lance Stephenson making his home debut after officially returning to the Pacers in Cleveland on Sunday.
After losing their last four and six of their last seven, the Pacers remain in playoff contention but will need to begin a winning streak at home against the Raptors. To do so they will need to get DeMar DeRozan off his game after he dropped 40 on the Pacers in their last meeting. Sounds like a job for Stephenson, taking residence under DeRozan’s skin.
