Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers schedule

But after IN took its first lead on Jeff Teague's 3-pointer with 5:48 left IN the third, George cranked it up.

Stephenson then went off, scoring 12 points in 25 minutes on 5-10 shooting, propelling the Pacers to a key 108-90 win over the Raptors.

Anthony then scored eight points in the third quarter to help NY to an 80-64 advantage heading into the final period.

Stephenson was apologetic after the game and admitted the crowd got him fired up.

The game ended with a lopsided margin of victory, but not how you would have anticipated.

Stephenson did apologize after the game. After this incident with Stephenson, I'm sure Raptor fans would love a chance to play the Pacers in round one.

"I didn't mean no harm, " he said. They just make everything easy for me since Day 1. His box score numbers (4 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists) don't really do him justice.

By George, he's back, better, in fact, than the previous version who helped the Pacers come within a possession or two of competing for an National Basketball Association title.

And for the third time, he reiterated: "There's a way to win and there's a way to lose, and that ain't the way you win". "You just hold onto the ball".




CAVALIERS 122, MAGIC 102: In Cleveland, LeBron James notched his second straight triple-double, Kevin Love scored 28 and Cleveland warmed up for a big game in Boston by making 18 3-pointers in a win over Orlando. "I saw it in Cleveland and we saw it again tonight".

Dwane Casey spoke on how teams such as the Pacers, Pistons and Heat would bring their best, summon all they have, how the Raptors had to match the opposition's desperation, how every possession would be critical.

"I think the thing they're missing is that energy and that never bow-down-to-anyone [mentality]", Stephenson said after signing with the Pacers last week.

Prior to their second-half flop in IN, the Raptors had won eight of their last nine games.

DeRozan led Toronto with 27, including 20 in the third quarter when he lit up Stephenson.

Several Pacers players after the game commented on their own that Tuesday's atmosphere, in front of 16,524, was the most alive Bankers Life Fieldhouse had been all season. "When he was in the locker room and I addressed that, he knew that".

For the Raptors, who were beaten for just the second time in the last 10 games, the defeat wasn't horribly costly.

"I nearly teared up, " Stephenson said of the applause he heard as he went to the scorer's table late in the first quarter.

After the game, DeRozan told reporters (via ESPN) the play was "disrespectful to the game". He even averaged a career-high 14.2 points per game. And just like that, this moribund Pacers team thought to be without hope for any postseason success had a heartbeat.
