Raptors Take 2-1 Series Lead With Dominant 101-85 Win Over Pacers

The Toronto Raptors took the series lead over the Indiana Pacers for the first time, winning Game 3 with a dominant 101-85 performance on the road.

Toronto led for nearly the entirety of the first quarter, but really broke the game open with an 18-7 run in the second, giving them a 42-24 advantage and a 53-36 lead at the half. Indiana was able to cut the lead to 12 on multiple occasions, but never got closer than that as the Raptors cruised to the easy victory.

Kyle Lowry led Toronto with 21 points and eight assists, while DeMar DeRozan shook off poor performances in each of the first two games to drop 21 points as well.

Instead of DeRozan, it was Paul George who had an off shooting night, scoring 25 points on just 6/19 shooting. Rookie Myles Turner gave the Pacers a major spark off the bench with 17 points and eight rebounds, but the whole team really struggled to score all night, shooting just 38.2 percent from the floor and 27.3 percent from three.

The Raptors now lead the series 2-1. Game 4 in Indianapolis will be Saturday at 3:00 pm ET on TNT.
