The Pacers have dropped two tightly contested games to the Raptors so far this season, including a late collapse on Wednesday in Toronto that pushed their current losing streak to three games.
This game will be the first of a rare back-to-back at home with New Orleans in town on Saturday. With the back-to-back games, Victor Oladipo is listed as questionable under the assumption he will sit out one of the games. If he had to choose, I would think Vic would rather play against the defending champs in a game broadcast nationally on ESPN.
