The Toronto Raptors finished off their six-game homestand on a four-game winning streak.
Now, they head back on the road to take on Paul George and the Indiana Pacers, who could pose some matchup problems for Dwane Casey's undermanned group.
These teams squared off in the first game of the season, and the Raptors came out on top. How will Toronto manage without Jonas Valanciunas and DeMarre Carroll this time around?
DeMar DeRozan should be fired up for this one as he is coming off his first career Eastern Conference Player of the Week award. Over four games last week, he averaged 24.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists on 52 per cent shooting.
