Tonight's match-up vs the Indiana Pacers tonight marks game number 50 for the Raptors this season.

Of their previous 49 contests, the club has only won 17 of them, and is looking further and further from contending for that elusive eighth and final playoff spot.

So games like tonight's are going to be very interesting over the next 10 days or so.

Will the Dinos be showcasing various players in advance of the upcoming trade deadline? Will the team essentially acknowledge that the playoff chase is over, and give major minutes to rookies like Terrence Ross and Jonas Valanciunas?

Or will things remain status quo as the Dinos continue their charge towards...

...well...we're not really sure at this point.

One thing we do know is that they're in tough tonight against one of the top defensive teams in the league, and a club that can play just about any style of ball.

The Beastly Pacers were previewed already today via our own Scott Campsall, so let's get to this one as Toronto looks to stop a two-game losing streak.

GO RAPS!
