The NBA Playoffs continue tonight when the Indiana Pacers take on the Toronto Raptors. The game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on NBATV. The betting odds for the game have the Raptors favored to pick up the win.
Line: Raptors -7.5
Indiana found a way to win the opening game of this series on the road, which makes tonight’s matchup an interesting one. Toronto finished with 56 wins on the season, which was good for the second-most of any team in the Eastern Conference behind Cleveland.
The loss was the seventh straight for Toronto in the playoffs. The Raptors turned it over 19 times but they did have an impressive 65-rebound performance though it was not enough.
Indiana shot the ball better at 43 percent, they also knocked down better than 52 percent of their triples. Toronto did not shoot the ball well at all and Cory Joseph led them with 18 points.
Paul George had a monster game with 33 points for Indiana; he handed out six assists as well. The Pacers weren’t a great road team but found a way to steal one in the opener.
Look for Toronto to be better focused tonight. The Raptors have to get at least this one at home and avoid an eighth-straight post season defeat.
