The Pacers look to bounce back from a brutal loss when they visit the Raptors on a back-to-back.

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Toronto Raptors Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers play the first of three games against the Raptors on Wednesday night. This, a night after absorbing their worst loss of the season at home to the Cavs.

Now on the road, the Pacers face the team with the best record in the NBA, a daunting task, no doubt. But the Pacers should be ready to roll after the fade down the stretch last night. Plus, Toronto has their own issues despite having the last two days off.

This will be the Raps’ first game home after four on the road against Western Conference teams. Along with adjusting to the time zone change, the Raptors also have a string of injuries which should give the Pacers a depth advantage. Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas are all out, but compared to the roster the Cavs threw at the Pacers on Tuesday, Toronto has plenty of talent in reserve starting with Kawhi Leonard.

The Pacers are 5-0 in the SEGABABA situation, but that impressive record will be tough to keep unscathed in Toronto tonight.
