Pacers Look To Bounce Back Against Toronto

Last updated on Friday, November 16, 2007

(TORONTO, ON) - The Indiana Pacers will try to halt their current five-game losing streak tonight in Toronto as they face the Raptors.

The blue-and-gold's latest setback came on Wednesday when the Pacers fell to the Washington Wizards 103-90.

During the five-game skid, the Pacers have combined to shoot just under 40-percent from the field. They have been held to 90 points or less in four of the five losses.

The streak comes on the heels of a 3-and-0 start, leaving Indiana at 3-and-5 on the season.

The Raptors are 4-and-4 and are coming off a loss against Utah on Wednesday. That was Toronto's third-straight defeat at the Air Canada Centre.

One positive for Indiana in the Washington game was the return of Marquis Daniels. Daniels scored a team-high 19 points after being bothered by a sore knee.

The Pacers were without forward Troy Murphy, who aggravated the left achilles injury that cost him the first three games of the season in Tuesday night's loss to Boston. Murphy is listed as day-to-day.
