Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers
NBA Regular Season
TOR VS IND MATCH PREVIEW:
Eastern Conference leaders Toronto Raptors host Indiana Pacers in NBA action on Saturday morning (IST) at Air Canada Center, Toronto.
Raptors (56-22) won the conference shoot-out against Boston Celtics 96-78 in their last game, which moved them three games clear of the Celts. Now only four games left in the regular season, so Raptors are home and dry as far as the conference title is concerned unless they lose all their games while Celtics win their all which looks improbable.
But we live in a world where strange things happen, where Leicester defy 1:5000 odds and win the Premier League title, where Usain Bolt losses his last professional race. So anything can happen, and Raptors need a win to be crowned as the champions of East.
Indiana Pacers (47-32), on the other hand, have performed better than they did last season. In the 2016-17 season, they finished at 7th with 42-40 record, and that too when Paul George was in their roster.
The 27-year-old Small-Forward is now playing for Oklahoma City Thunder while Pacers have found their new hero in Victor Oladipo who is averaging 23.3 points per game this season which is the 10th best return in 2017-18. So Indiana have some artillery in their ranks to hurt leaders Toronto who are seeking their final win to win the conference.
Match Timing: Tomorrow, April 07, 05:00 AM IST
