INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 21, 2016) – Coming into their first home game of the postseason, the Pacers had full confidence that home court advantage would play to their favor, but that wasn’t the case.

The gold t-shirts covering the fieldhouse and the packed stands full of passionate Pacer fans, didn’t do a thing. The Raptors finally looked like a 2 seed and the Pacers looked like the 7 seed that they are.

Toronto held Indiana to just 85 points as the Pacers put on an all around poor performance on their home floor. Indiana coughed up the ball 16 times, shot 27.3% from the field and went 6-22 from the perimeter.

DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry each put up 21 points and DeMarre Carroll added 17 points.

The Pacers will head into game four on Saturday trailing in the series 2-1.
