(TORONTO, ON) - The Indiana Pacers take their 1-and-0 record on the road tonight as they face the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre.
The Pacers won their regular season opener on Monday night as they beat the Detroit Pistons 91-79 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Roy Hibbert and Danny Granger led Indiana with 16 points apiece with Hibbert also pulling down a game-high 14 rebounds. Tyler Hansbrough and David West also had double-doubles for the Pacers.
