The Toronto Raptors are Canada’s team, and they’re certainly playing like it right now. On the heels of five straight wins north of the border, the Dinos will look to keep the momentum going at the Air Canada Centre vs the Indiana Pacers on Friday.

The Raps bounced back by hammering Atlanta 112-78 to finish their road trip before coming back to Canada to start a three-game home stand off on the right foot with a 126-113 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. The star-studded backcourt of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combined for 66 points in the contest.

The Pacers are playing excellent basketball as well are winners of six of their last eight, with the two losses coming to conference leaders Boston and Houston in that span. Victor Oladipo has been a revelation with the Pacers and is leading the team in points per game as a result (22.8).

Bettors need to pay attention to the status of Pacers’ starting center Myles Turner. As of early Friday morning, Turner was listed as questionable for the tilt. The 21-year-old is a difference maker for Indy and the Pacers are a much more efficient team when he’s on the floor.
