INDIANAPOLIS -- Who needs rest after playing a triple-overtime game the night before? Evidently not the Toronto Raptors, who edged the Indiana Pacers 74-72 Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse despite getting outscored 14-5 in the fourth quarter.

Thanks to their own miscues, the Pacers went into the final quarter trailing by 11. Getting field goals was almost impossible for the Pacers. They went 7 minutes, 29 seconds between field goals in a span that stretched from the third...

On Tuesday, they scored just 72 points in a loss against the Raptors, and this was after managing to hold the Raptors to...

TORONTO -- The second 3-pointer of Al Jefferson's NBA career bounced tantalizingly before dropping through the rim. It was the start of something big for the Utah Jazz. Jefferson was 1-for-25 from beyond the arc in his nine-year career when he made a 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation Monday to tie the game against the Toronto Raptors at 104-104, forcing overtime...
It's been a while since we last heard about Davis Bertans. You remember him right? He was part of the 2011 Draft day trade between the San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers which allowed the Spurs to acquire Kawhi Leonard and send George Hill to Indiana. Recall the Pacers drafted Bertans in 2011 (42nd overall) but was sent to the Spurs as part of the trade.
