Kyle Lowry returns to lead Toronto Raptors to victory over Pacers

For the Pacers, Ike Anigbogu is out with a sore right knee and Myles Turner is questionable with a sore right shoulder.

Kawhi Leonard will sit out tonight versus the Pacers.

Raptors will surely miss center Jonas Valanciunas (Thumb). The team's point guard Kyle Lowry is said to be a game-time decision for this clash.

The schism is one of profound geopolitical importance. "Right now, Taiwan is coming to terms with a deteriorating military".

- Bounce back: The Raptors will face IN fresh off a much-needed 123-116 road win against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. At 26-12, IN is IN third place IN the Eastern Conference. The Pacers have dropped their last ten regular season games in Canada, with their last win coming on March 1, 2013. They last played on Friday when it took Victor Oladipo scoring 36 to beat the Bulls. In addition to being the stingiest defensive team in the National Basketball Association, the Pacers rank second in the league in field-goal percentage and third in the league in opponent's rebounding percentage. It was a rather controversial loss with a missed call but nonetheless, it was IN that squandered a 17-point lead, so they would want to make amends on this trip up north.

Attempting to win in Toronto against the Raptors would mean that in is also going up against some history.

- Streak continues: Kawhi Leonard's career-best stretch of consecutive games with at least 20 points scored was extended in Saturday's game against the Bucks. Leonard scored 30 points in the win, making it 16 consecutive games with at least 20 points, (Nov. 29 - January 5). Green, on the other hand, is in a bit of a funk having scored a total of two points over the last two games but remains among Toronto's best defenders. Norm Powell had a season-high 23 points, Serge Ibaka finished with 18, Danny Green had 15, Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet had 12, Greg Monroe had 11 and Delon Wright had 10. The Pacers are an elite defence, perhaps the best in the league through half of the season, and even in Lowry's first game back after missing nine of the previous 10, he was picking up on any opportunity to put them on their heels. He shot 6-for-12 from the floor and 5-for-8 from beyond the arc.
