In case you're wondering Damo fans, "mikrovalna pećnica" is Croatian for "microwave." #Pacers

Mark Montieth

Pacers down 9 entering 4th, just like Orlando. Does Damo have another 16 point quarter in him?

Scott Agness

Great find by West, his pass to Stuckey leads to a layup, trimming the Pacers’ deficit to 9. Pacers 3-25 this season when trailing after 3Q

Greg Rappaport

Quite a run by Indiana to get the deficit to 9 at the end of the 3rd quarter. George Hill is creating just about everything out there.

Candace Buckner

End of 3rd Q: #Raptors ahead 77-68. Rodney Stuckey up to 20 points but David West (11) is only other #Pacer in double figures.

Candace Buckner

Psycho T just bulldozing #Pacers out of his way -- don't think he even wants the ball, just a body to hit

Conrad Brunner

Came to BLF to gather info for "5 reasons to be optimistic about #Pacers" story. Got stuck at two. And one was the trade deadline.

Candace Buckner

G. Hill winced a few times after last #Pacers possessions. He's playing on but considering his recent history, hate to even see a grimace

Candace Buckner

FIIIIIGHHHHT! RT @Joseph Goodman: Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather talking courtside. This is intense.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers need a timeout after Kyle Lowry drops another assist. He averages 20 and 7 on the road…Tonight, Lowry's up to 19 & 6 already

Candace Buckner

I do believe Ian Mahinmi pushed his teammate Damjan Rudez into that foul.

Greg Rappaport

Pacers down by 13 but Hill, Rudez, and Mahinmi check in with fresh legs. Hopefully Hill and Damjan can get hot again.

Candace Buckner

Vogel making wholesale changes with Hill, Rudez and Mahinmi coming in with 3:50 remaining in 3rd Q

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert lost on that last possession. Wasn't watching the ball or his man

Candace Buckner

Kyle Lowry acting like an All-Star starter now

Greg Rappaport

Kyle Lowry starting to get hot for TOR. Has made 3 of Raps 5 FGs this half. 16 points for the game.

Candace Buckner

Refs review and take away basket from David West at end of shot clock. #Raptors now up 61-53.

Candace Buckner

Past midway mark of the 3rd Q, #Raptors lead 61-55. Kyle Lowry heating up with 7 points through the quarter

Candace Buckner

David West catches an air ball at the end of the shot clock and lays it in, but after the buzzer went off. Shot counted but will review

Conrad Brunner

Uncharacteristic 3-pt shooting keeping #Pacers in it. Characteristic lack of D the bigger problem.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert back to his tumbling ways. Lost count of how many times he's hit the floor tonight from contact

Candace Buckner

I think people in the cheap seats could hear Vogel screaming "Screen the s$%@ outta 'em, White!"

Candace Buckner

If Bruno wasn't wearing a suit jacket, I would've thought he was a very tall ball boy, not a #Raptors draft pick

Candace Buckner

Bruno Caboclo just walked by the scorer's table. Talk about having a baby face

Mark Montieth

Raptors shot 18 foul shots, Pacers shot 9 in first half. Tells you something about their offenses, and why Toronto leads 50-44.

Candace Buckner

Hill couldn't beat the buzzer this time, #Pacers trail 50-44. #Raptors outscored Indy 29-16

Conrad Brunner

#Raptors finish half on 29-12 run to take 50-44 lead over #Pacers into break.

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill hit with his 3rd foul. Vogel wants a "play on" and brings up this fact to ref Haywood Workman: #Raptors 18 FTAs, #Pacers 7

Candace Buckner

Immediately, Lavoy Allen dusts off the cobwebs and hits a baseline jumper.

Candace Buckner

Lavoy Allen coming into the game, replacing Roy Hibbert.

Candace Buckner

I'll say this about the #Raptors, though they're not really hitting shots, the ball stays alive in their sets.

Conrad Brunner

Kid in timeout contest just shot 2-for-17, and #Pacers scouting department stopped him way off the floor.

Conrad Brunner

#Raptors have scored 20 straight as #Pacers have gone 0-5 with 4 TOs in last 5 mins. Go ahead and turn the scoreboard off again.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert really, really wanted the ball against Hansborough in the post that last possession. Teammates looked the other way 3 times

Mark Montieth

Tyler Hansbrough looks like he's shrunk. So has his scoring average, to 3 points.

Adonis Thomas

Just left the Boys and Girls Club in Grand Rapids. Always a humbling experience!

Greg Rappaport

Donald Sloan checking into the game. Glad to see it. I feel like he's been playing too well to relegate to the bench.

Candace Buckner

Scola throws a pass intended for Rudez three rows deep into the stands. Next play, Rudez commits a turnover while trying to find Scola.

Mark Montieth

Great ball movement for a 3 from George Hill and then a runner at the buzzer from Hill. Pacers lead 28-21.

Greg Rappaport

George Hill, making this game look easy. After a corner three he puts up a buzzer-beating layup to end the first Q. Pacers lead 28-21

Candace Buckner

George Hill scores 5 points in the final 25 seconds and beats the 1st Q buzzer with the floater. #Pacers lead 28-21 heading into 2nd Q

Candace Buckner

So, OK, Patrick Patterson (not Peterson). Sorry, gang. My tweet game is still somewhere in Orlando. Was a long trip. #PrayForCandace

Mark Montieth

Damo enters game to deafening standing ovation. Well, maybe polite applause.

Greg Rappaport

Damjan Rudez gets a nice applause. Clearly quite a few fans tuned in for his 16-point fourth quarter against ORL.

Candace Buckner

How the #Raptors are leading right now… one of life's greatest mysteries. TOR's Patrick Peterson hits a 3 and now Raps up 21-20

Candace Buckner

Rodney Stuckey's been good thus far on that little pull up. 8 points already

Scott Agness

Tyler Hansbrough coming in, too. His numbers are the lowest of his six-year NBA career. 3pts, 3rebs in about 14mins/game.

Candace Buckner

DeMar DeRozan becomes just the second #Raptor to hit a shot tonight (Kyle Lowry 2 for 4) and #Pacers still leading 15-8 at 4:05 mark

Scott Agness

George Hill coming in after this timeout. Still limited to ~20mins/game. Hill prefers coming off bench, helps ensure he can play final 5mins

Greg Rappaport

These Pacers are blowing my mind right now. Looking great on both ends are leading 15-8

Greg Rappaport

David West denies Patrick Patterson on the pick-n-pop

Conrad Brunner

Ironic that on a night when the #Pacers are actually leading, the gynormous scoreboard isn't showing the score.

Candace Buckner

DeMar DeRozan misses dunk on Roy Hibbert, get fouled and keeps going toward an empty baseline seat to plop down and tie up his shoes

Candace Buckner

Nice transition D by Solomon Hill to angle into DeMar DeRozan's path and stop the fast break.

Scott Agness

Pacers with a 9-0 lead on Toronto. Made 4-of-7 shots as Raptors have missed all four shots + two turnovers.

Mark Montieth

Pacers in danger of violating the 10-point rule. Lead 9-0.

Greg Rappaport

Raptors making a habit of this I guess? They fell behind 15-0 to the Sixers a couple days ago.

Candace Buckner

And your NBA league hook shot maker, Roy Hibbert, with - you guessed it - a hook shot. #Pacers up 9-0. Couldn't ask for better start

Greg Rappaport

Pacers jump out to a 7-0 lead behind some swarming defense. Everyone seems to be on the same page.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers out to a 7-0 start over the #Raptors. Toronto making some seriously strange decisions on the offensive end

Scott Agness

CJ Miles missing his 2nd straight game w/ a left groin strain. He tested it at shootaround, but it was painful to run, cut, be in a stance.

Candace Buckner

At least Indiana kinda represented MT @Mike Tokito: NBA announces dunk contest entrants: Antetokounmpo, Z LaVine, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee.

Greg Rappaport

Best part of the Pacers intro video is definitely Rudez standing there unsure of what to do.

Scott Agness

The All-Star dunk contest is returning to the classic format, NBA announced. Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee, Zach LaVine, and Antetokounmpo.

Conrad Brunner

Asked about strategy against Lowry in December matchup, #Pacers Vogel said, 'We let Lou Williams get hot so Kyle would pass to him.' #clever

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel also cautioned fans not to get excited about reports of @Paul George dunking at practice. "He's still a long way away."

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers Vogel reports GHill had "pretty significant soreness" after Orlando game, so will remain on pitch count for a couple more games.

Scott Agness

Solomon Hill said pregame he has not heard anything regarding the #RisingStarsChallenge at All-Star wkend. (1st-, 2nd-yr players v World.)

Vogel provided little in terms of an update on Paul George. He's increasing his workload, but it's still all non-contact work.

Greg Rappaport

Pacers getting some shots in before the 7PM tip tonight against Toronto. http://t.co/9vPjZuxnE5

Scott Agness

George Hill (groin) still on a minutes restriction, likely for at least a couple more gms. He had "pretty significant soreness" after ORL gm

Greg Rappaport

Vogel about to address the media pregame. Hoping he says more than Lynch.

Greg Rappaport

Marshawn Lynch Has A Cold

Mark Montieth

Someone covering SB should call former Cowboy RB Duane Thomas. He refused to talk at VI. Had totally different attitude later -- too late.

Greg Rappaport

Maybe getting an answer out of Marshawn Lynch is like pulling Excalibur from the stone. Only one Journo can get a response. WHO WILL IT BE?

Mark Montieth

I'm curious, @Reggie Miller, what was your favorite uniform design with the Pacers?
