24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The NBA Playoffs kicked off on Saturday morning in Toronto as the Raptors hosted the Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals.
With “Jurassic Park” packed for the third straight year, the Pacers were in a hostile environment, but that didn’t seem to affect their star forward Paul George who was making his return to the postseason for the first time since 2014.
George went off for 33 points and hit a number of dagger shots, while the Raptors backcourt of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined for an 8-of-32 shooting night. The Pacers just seemed tougher than the Raps in this one as they took the 100-90 Game 1 win.
