IND Vs TOR Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Indiana Pacers look to move level on wins with the Raptors today.
For Indiana Pacers, consistency has been a major cause of contention in this ongoing edition of the marquee league. The side have been refrained from making a surge into the echelons of the Eastern Conference owing to their failure to string together a massive meaningful winning spree, something they’ll be looking to embark on come today’s outing.
Defeated 117-89 by Milwaukee Bucks the last time around, although the side won’t be much deterred by the defeat given the identity of the opponent it came against, the nature of the defeat is about to perturb the outfit. They were plundered and pestered with an onslaught of attacking plays by the conference leaders, a game which saw the Pacers being comprehensively outplayed and clinically decimated on the day.
And up against the Rapports today, Indiana Pacers know they can’t afford to commit the same defensive lapses if they are to cut short their deficit from the top of the league standings. Currently in 4th place with a record of 21-8, Toronto Raptors are making an advent into this one with the five wins in succession with the most recent one being a 110-107 triumph over Dallas Mavericks.
And up against a Pacers outfit which has crumbled infront of menacing and formidable attacking contingents, the visiting side go into this one the slightly favoured side. This promises to be a closely contested affair, an encounter which is set to immerse us in a humdinger of a contest with the barest of margins coming into play at the end of the day.
