The Pacers look to slow down the streaking Raptors.

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers (31-19) begin a home-and-home series with the Raptors (36-14) on Wednesday night at the Scotiabank Arena.

The Pacers expect to increase Victor Oladipo’s minutes to 28 and may insert him into the starting lineup hoping to help Vic find his offensive rhythm. T.J. Warren is still out with a concussion while the Raptors are missing Marc Gasol and Norman Powell.

The first meeting in late December at the Fieldhouse saw the Raptors take home a 120-115 in overtime. Both teams were missing fire power with Pascal Siakam and Malcolm Brogdon missing the game.

This is the first of two consecutive games between the two teams who will both cross the border and meet again in Indy on Friday.
