The Pacers faced the number one team in the East, the TorontoRaptors, at Air Canada Centre on Friday. Indiana was off their game from the start and missed 14 of their first 16 shots. The Pacers could not come back from this and fell to Toronto, 92-73.
The Pacers played Golden State the night before and they were struggling with the back-to-back difficult games. Toronto is the top team in the East and their bench is tops in the league. Indiana could not find their flow and allowed Toronto to clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference.
To try to switch things up, Nate McMillan put Al Jefferson in the game. Big Al played for eight minutes and scored six points. Al continues to be extremely efficient whenever he his given playing time. No. 25 also had four rebounds and one assist, but his help was not enough to change the momentum of the game.

It was not the Pacers night, but hopefully they will have a better game against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.
