Raptors beat Pacers in overtime

INDIANAPOLIS - There's something about the state of Indiana that just suits these Raptors.

For the second time this season, the Raptors arrived in Indianapolis serious underdogs and walked out a winner.

The Pacers came into this one looking to improve on a 15-game home winning streak, but the visitors would not cooperate, eventually leaving with a hard-fought 100-98 win in overtime.

The fact that the Raptors now have two of the four wins by opponents at Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season is unfathomable.

And no one can say the Raptors didn’t earn this one either.

The fact that it was game-closer and newest Raptor Rudy Gay sinking the winning basket only made it sweeter, but this was far from just Gay.








Do you like the new-look Raptors heading into the 2013-14 NBA season?
  Yes, new GM made great moves
  No, they will still be a terrible team
  Unsure what to make of it
