Scottie Barnes’ triple-double leads Toronto

Mar 15, 2024

INDIANAPOLIS ― The Raptors snapped the Pacers’ three-game winning streak Monday night 130-122 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

The Pacers fell to 33-26, and their lead on Orlando and Miami for sixth place in the Eastern Conference fell to one-half. Toronto improved to 22-36.

Here are four observations.

Raptors dominate the paint

The Raptors may be in the draft lottery at the moment, but they remain dangerous because of their length, especially from positions 2-5, as well as tough drivers at point guard.

That made the Raptors tough to keep out of the paint, and the Pacers tend to struggle with teams that operate that way. Toronto outscored the Pacers 78-50 in the paint and got strong performances from all of their wings.
