Raptors Rapid Recap: Toronto 117 Indiana 102

New, comments

- The Toronto Raptors are red-hot at home, having captured 11 of 12 contests in the friendly confines of the Air Canada Centre.

- The Dinos finished the month of January with 10 wins and five losses, and are four games above .500 for the first time since 2008.

- The Raptors shot a season-high 60.2% from the field, with seven players in double figures, and won the battle of the glass 44-32.

- Player of the Game? No surprise. All-star forward Chris Bosh continues to make it look easy with 26 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks.

- The face of Pizza Pizza, Hedo Turkoglu, left the game early in the first quarter after being elbowed in the right eye by Mike Dunleavy Jr. Turkoglu went to the hospital for further tests.

- The Pacers used hot shooting from outside to stay in it. They were 10-21 from downtown at one point before missing their last six attempts from long range.

- Point guards Jarrett Jack and Jose Calderon combined for 28 points and 13 assists. That had to be especially tough to watch for third-stringer T.J. Ford, who logged a DNP – Coach’s Decision despite having started ahead of both Jack and Calderon at times in Indiana and Toronto, respectively.

- Danny Granger just never got it going in this one, finishing with just eight points on 3-13 shooting.

- The Raptors travel to Indiana to finish up the home-and-home series with the Pacers on Tuesday.
