So Holiday to the bench instead of Duarte.

Craig and Holiday scorers for 2nd unit tonight I guess

Heck I would have started this lineup based off previous Toronto game.

Sabonis
Goga
Craig
LeVert
McConnell

With a second unit of

Turner
Brissett
Holiday
Duarte
Jarreau/ Wanamaker cough

Caris is the legit scorer they haven't had on the floor much the past years.

Agree and his basketball IQ is much higher which lets him naturally get his own shot, make timely passes to the cutting players, and run the offense so it doesn’t bog down.

TJ Warren also has the ability also to be a scoring threat equivalent to Caris, Malcolm, and Domas. This team can be hard to guard if we get all back this season and healthy.

I know LeVert was on a pitch count, but I wish they could've played him down the stretch.

Likewise they really needed his shooting and experience to hang in for a chance at a win.

Tough start to the season when I actually like the look and feel of alot of what the team is doing.

Gotta hope it translates to some wins pretty quick

On the bright side, Pacers could easily be 5-2 right now

1 point losses to Hornets and Wizards, 7 point loss to the Nets in a game in which KD should have been ejected, and a 3 point loss against Raptors

At least they competed the last two games. They just don’t have the horses right now. Take three starters off most teams and they will struggle.

On the other hand, the one game they have won was also very close and even an overtime game. So, you could say they easily might have been winless at 0-7.

How's that for a ray of sunshine?

It isn't just frustrating. Its plain bad basketball. That's on the coaches as much as it is the players.

Full disclosure, and in all honesty, I didn't watch the game so I can only wonder about things like why Turner had so few shots and low minutes again. When they start to give a reason to watch I'll tune back in. Until then it is not worth investing time on.

According to Scott Agness: Attendance for Pacers-Raptors, the third home game of the season: 10,578.

It is only three games, but we have a firm grasp on the bottom slot in the league for attendance so far.
