Pacers, Raptors Face Off Monday Night

Last updated on Monday, April 9, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Pacers face the Toronto Raptors tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers are 34-and-22 and are coming off an 86-72 loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday night. That loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Indiana.

The Raptors are 20-and-36 and are on the verge of elimination from playoff contention. Toronto is playing game-two of a back-to-back this evening as they are coming off a 91-75 loss in Oklahoma City last night.

The Raptors lost leading scorer Andrea Bargnani early in Sunday's loss with tightness in his left calf. Bargnani, who averages over 19 points per game, played just 13 minutes and scored seven points against the Thunder.

The Pacers are going for a sweep of the three-game season series with Toronto tonight. The Blue-and-Gold won the first two meetings in Canada, knocking off the Raptors 90-85 on December 28th and 95-90 on January 13th.

Toronto has lost two games in a row following a season-high three-game winning streak.

You can hear all of the action starting with the pregame at 6:30pm on 1340 AM WBIW.
