Indiana Pacers Game Recap: Running Out of Gas

Indiana Pacers Game Recap: Running Out of Gas

It's a good team with a chance to get even better in the second half of the season, which tips off Monday in a Martin Luther King matinee in Philadelphia.

There are all kinds of numbers to crunch, but majority keep spitting out the same conclusion: At the midway point of the regular season the only team that can, without argument, claim to be superior to the Raptors is the one that is coming to town Saturday night.

The same could be said when Toronto visited Boston.

At Minnesota, the game was virtually over when the Timberwolves jumped out to a 20-4 lead on the Cavs. The Raptors enter Game 41 of 82 regular season games with a franchise-best 29 victories. We still have work to do to get to where we want to go and I know it sounds like coach speak but it's true. "We're still trying to figure things out, trying to figure out some players".

But James had two chances in the final two seconds to win it and missed both opportunities - after Victor Oladipo gave in the lead for good on a 3-pointer with 2:09 left in the game. This year's squad has had problems with defensive effort, one aspect that can certainly improve when their general interest in games is piqued.

He's right. Another night. "We had a lot of energy in the first half".

Jonas Valanciunas has been a beast when he's being fed and not subbed in when teams go small.

DeMar DeRozan continues to expand his game.

Lowry is still a game-time decision for Saturday night after missing the past two games with a bruised tailbone.

"You're talking about people instead of computers or statistics, you're talking about feelings, a guy maybe had a long day or whatever", said Casey.

"They're growing", Casey said of his young group. "The referees made a call, they reviewed it and the call stands". But it seems there is more ice coming his way than just from the weather. They've got a guy on their team that understands what it takes. They haven't been there before. You rarely if ever see him in commercials, or leading off highlight shows, or generating buzz on social media. "Those are the things young players face each night and we're very fortunate to be able to do that, being one of the top teams in the conference and winning at the same time (as the Raptors develop their young group) because usually you're in the lottery".

San Antonio's big man leads the team in points (22.6) and rebounds (8.6) per game while Denver's rising star is averaging a double-double with 15.7 points and 10.2 rebounds.

"Freddie is one of those teammates who will go down in my books as one of my favourites, by his toughness and the way he carries himself". The moment was posted on Twitter by the National Basketball Association on TNT. "He's a little, tough firecracker".
