Toronto 115 Indiana 106

Raptors top Pacers; win streak at 13

MICHAEL MAROT | Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS – Serge Ibaka had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Fred VanVleet added 20 points Friday night to lead the Toronto Raptors past the Indiana Pacers 115-106 for their franchise-record 13th consecutive win.

The Raptors haven't lost since Jan. 15 and beat the Pacers for the second time in three days, winning their first game in Indianapolis in 13 months.

Domantas Sabonis had 19 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Pacers. Victor Oladipo added 15 points and four assists in his first home start since returning from an injured right knee.

Indiana has lost four straight and three in a row at home.

Toronto took control with a 12-3 run late in the third quarter, using it to grab an 87-78 lead. But after six-time All-Star Kyle Lowry left with what appeared to be an injured right shoulder or arm, the Pacers closed out the quarter by scoring five straight.

The team said Lowry had whiplash after drawing a foul on Jeremy Lamb. Replays showed Lowry running into Ibaka as he fell to the floor, with his head and shoulder making contact near Ibaka's hip.

Lowry remained on the floor for several minutes. Then, after walking to the sideline where he spent most of the timeout, he went to the locker room.

Indiana got as close as 101-99 with 6:47 left, but Toronto pulled away with a 12-4 spurt that made it 113-103 with 1:48 to play.

Notes: Oladipo will be held out of today's game against New Orleans because he is not playing in back-to-back games yet. ... Sabonis had 10 points and 10 rebounds at halftime, his 39th double-double this season. ... The Raptors' OG Anunoby scored 16 points and had five steals before fouling out.
