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.

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.
