The Pacers have played the Raptors tough throughout the first three games, but are 0-3 against the defending champs. The first loss was in overtime at the Fieldhouse and then a late collapse by the Pacers in their first game in Toronto ended with a one-point loss for the good guys.
Once again, the Pacers will try to get over the hump to hold on for a win in Toronto, but will have to do so without Victor Oladipo who is dealing with back spasms and has been ruled out. With Edmond Sumner also out, Aaron Holiday should find his way back into the rotation.
The Raptors have taken over second place in the East thanks to winning 16 of their last 17 games which included winning 15 consecutive games. Two of those wins were against the Pacers.
