THE FACTS: Despite a number of new faces in the Toronto Raptors (0-1) line up, they still faced a similar result, losing to the (1-0) Indiana Pacers 90-88 at their home opener. George Hill's game winning 5-foot floater capped off a 16-4 fourth quarter run to end the game. Indiana outscored Toronto 27-17 in the final frame. The Pacers were led by David West's game-high 25 points, 14 of which came in the final quarter. Paul George added a double-double with 14 points and 15 rebounds, while Roy Hibbert chipped in 14 points and 9 rebounds.

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry had 21 points, eight assists and five seals in his debut. Andrea Bargnani scored 16 points and rookie center Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

With the score tied 88-88 and 22.1 left in the game, officials had to go to video review to determine who had possession from an out of bounds play. Indiana was awarded the ball and set up the final game winning possession. Bargnani's 16-foot shot fell short and the Pacers went on to win, without last season's leading scorer Danny Granger, who is out indefinitely with a sore knee.


UP NEXT: For the Raptors: Saturday @ Brooklyn, Sunday vs. Minnesota, Tuesday @ Oklahoma City. For the Pacers: Friday @ Charlotte, Saturday vs. Sacramento and Monday @ San Antonio.
