The fans at Air Canada Centre will be treated to a game between the Indiana Pacers and the Toronto Raptors when they take their seats on Friday.

ABOUT THE PACERS (37-38): All-Star forward Paul George cited a lack of energy as the reason Indiana allowed 72 first-half points on Wednesday to a Memphis team that was averaging 89 total points in four straight losses entering the contest. The Pacers are yielding an average of 115 points in their last five losses and have dropped six in a row on the road. “With our remaining games, the schedule doesn’t get any easier,” Indiana coach Nate McMillan told reporters. “The teams that we’re facing from here on out are playoff teams and they’re fighting for something. So it’s on us. We’ve just got to find a way to dig deep and put fatigue behind us.”

ABOUT THE RAPTORS (45-30):
Toronto could blame a lack of energy on the defensive end for why it allowed 44 fourth-quarter points in Wednesday’s loss to the Hornets, which came after a third quarter in which the Raptors held Charlotte to 16 points. “I can’t see how we lost this game,” veteran forward P.J. Tucker told the Toronto Star. “Especially when you consider the last few games, how the season is coming to an end, how close the race is. We can’t come out like that. There’s no excuse for us coming out and playing like that. We got to be better.” Toronto is close to at least clinching homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a six-game lead over fifth-place Atlanta.

Oddsmakers currently have the Raptors listed as 7-point favorites versus the Pacers, while the game’s total is sitting at 204½.

The Indiana Pacers aren’t playing like a team that wants to make the playoffs, and their latest slide is threatening to plummet the team out of the top eight in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers will try once again to turn things around when they visit the Toronto Raptors on Friday.

Indiana dropped four of its last five games to fall below .500 and has not earned back-to-back wins since bridging January and February with a seven-game winning streak, pushing the team down to eighth place in the East. The Pacers opened a three-game road trip with a 110-97 loss at Memphis on Wednesday and will play its next four games against teams above them in the standings, including two against the fourth-place Raptors. Toronto is trying to track down the Washington Wizards for the No. 3 spot in the East and had a six-game winning streak come to an end with a 110-106 home loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. The Raptors still have an outside shot at the top spot in the East and sit one game behind the Wizards with seven left in the regular season.

In their last action, Toronto was a 110-106 loser at home against the Hornets. They failed to cover the -5.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (216) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

The Pacers were a 110-97 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Grizzlies. They failed to cover the +4-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (207) made winners of OVER bettors.
