Raptors Drop Third Straight With Loss To Pacers

rapspacers200_030113

The Toronto Raptors saw the kind of effort it takes to make the NBA’s playoffs on Friday _ the Indiana Pacers showed them how it’s done.

Paul George’s 22 points and 10 rebounds helped the Pacers pull away from the Raptors as Indiana downed Toronto 93-81.

The Pacers ratcheted up the tempo offensively in the second half and clamped down on the defensive end as they put the game almost out of reach with a quarter left to play.

“That’s the level we’ve got to get ready for,” said Raptors head coach ...

When the game’s on the line, Dion Waiters wants the spotlight — and the ball.

“I live for that,” the rookie said.

Waiters scored 23 points, his last two coming on a crucial jumper with 1:43 left, Shaun Livingston added 15 and Cleveland overcame a horrendous start to win its second straight game without an injured Irving, 103-92 over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

The Cavs made only one of their first 15 shots, but recovered ...

TORONTO (CP) — With just 25 games left in the regular season, and the Toronto Raptors trying to claw their way into a playoff spot, there is no room for coasting.

Dwane Casey knows it, and he definitely let his players know it after the Raptors’ ugly 90-84 loss at home Monday to the Washington Wizards — the worst road team in the NBA.

“It was a stinker. They whupped us, they outworked us,” Casey said. “We tried to turn it on, turn it off. They got us. They kicked our ...
