Indiana Pacers vs Toronto Raptors

April 4, 2014

TSN - 7:00 PM EST

Two down, one to go.

The Toronto Raptors split the first two games in what I was dubbing "truth week" with a loss to the Miami Heat and a win over the Houston Rockets.

While the Raptors technically have two games left this week, the second of the two is a match vs the not-so-good Milwaukee Bucks so tonight's match vs the Indiana Pacers represents the third and final top-notch test for the Dinos. At least on paper.

The problem is that, as has been much discussed in the blogosphere, the Indiana Pacers haven't been so good of late, especially on offense. Defensively however as we noted in our preview this AM, the Pacers are still one of, if not the best, club in the league so this matchup should present a very nice challenge for the Dinos.

Especially if once again the club is without Amir Johnson and Kyle Lowry, something that doesn't sound like we'll get a feel for until just before the game tips off.
