  • Watch Pacers, Raptors Scuffle After Lance Stephenson's Garbage-Time Layup

As if IN standout Paul George needs added incentive, he seems to be receiving it since good friend and fiery former Pacers teammate Lance Stephenson re-signed with the team last week. "They whooped our tail in every aspect of the game".

Paul George scored 18 of his 35 points in the third quarter as in snapped a four-game losing streak, though the win was tainted by an ugly shoving match that spilled into the Pacers' bench.

Lance knew he messed up and offered an apology after the game. While the Heat face the more daunting schedule, the Pacers can't take anything for granted, with Miami standing at 37-40 heading into Wednesday night's game at Charlotte.

Toronto Raptors guard Norman Powell (24) changes direction as he drives in front of Indiana Pacers forward Lavoy Allen (5) during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis, Tuesday, April 4, 2017.

Jeff Teague added 20 points for IN, which is battling for a playoff spot IN the Eastern Conference. The Pistons have shot just 41.2 percent from the field and 27.9 percent on 3-point attempts during the last 11 games.

With the game all but decided and the shot clock turned off, Stephenson took an outlet pass from Paul George and nonchalantly finished a breakaway layup. "The way we played in this game, you have to respect that".

Stephenson apologized for scoring with a 16-point lead.

"I nearly teared up", Stephenson said.

"I didn't mean no harm, " Stephenson said. "He wants it just as much as we do".

I'm very much a stats guy, but despite Lance only being 2 for 7 shooting at one point (he'd end the night 5 of 10), he was giving IN a boost.

"I haven't felt that in a long time", George said after his third-quarter duel with DeRozan. It don't matter. There is a way to win and a way to lose.

Added DeRozen: "The game was over. And that ain't the way you win". But normally in situations like that teams hold the ball, pull it out and let the clock run out.

A win would move the Pistons within 2 games of Chicago and IN, both of whom are tied above the playoff cut line.

Pacers coach Nate McMillan said Stephenson was caught up in the game in the closing seconds. "When he is out there, he is in a zone emotionally". "I think we've got to prepare ourselves as such". "He knew in the locker room afterwards that teams don't normally do that".

"We came out with a 17-point lead and then it melted in the third quarter as far as our defence was concerned", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said.

"Maybe this will be the fight that we have to put up to really get us going", guard Kent Bazemore said after Tuesday's practice.

With the win, the Pacers snapped a four-game skid and improved to 38-40 with four regular-season game remaining.

But after IN took its first lead on Jeff Teague's 3-pointer with 5:48 left IN the third, George cranked it up. George had 29 points and nine rebounds through 36 minutes. He ranks third among Pacers players and 79th in the National Basketball Association with a 2.1 nERD on the season. They showed postseason-like intensity Tuesday night, erasing a 19-point deficit to beat the Toronto Raptors.

IN trailed by as much as 45-26 in a listless first half that drew boos from the crowd.

At no point did the Pacers lead.

All-Star Jimmy Butler scored 26 points for Chicago, and Nikola Mirotic had 21 points and 10 rebounds.

15 points and 11 rebounds as he continues to play better as his wrist heals. McMillan said Al Jefferson (sprained left ankle) was off crutches and out of the boot and is doing light jogging.

"Tasteless. Classless. There's nowhere in the league for that", P.J. Before playing the Raptors, Indiana was 1-6, allowing at least 109 points in each of the six losses.
