Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Few teams have had the Indiana Pacers'
number at Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season, but the Toronto Raptors haven't
had many problems there at all.
Rudy Gay's go-ahead jumper with 1.7 seconds remaining in overtime lifted the
Raptors to their second triumph in Indianapolis this season, a 100-98 victory
that ended the Pacers' 15-game home winning streak.
Gay finished with 23 points and DeMar DeRozan had 22 to help Toronto, which
dealt Indiana a 74-72 defeat at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Nov. 13, halt a
two-game skid. Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas notched double-doubles in
the win, with Johnson amassing 14 points and 14 rebounds and Valanciunas
pulling down 13 boards in addition to 14 points.
Johnson also sent the game into extra time with a putback off a Gay miss an
eyelash before the final horn sounded in regulation.
The Central Division-leading Pacers suffered their first setback at home since
a 92-89 ousting by Denver on Dec. 7 despite a 30-point night out of David West
and a 26-point, 14-rebound performance from Paul George. Indiana also had a
season-high five-game overall win streak halted.
