Toronto overcomes sluggish start to run past Pacers 104-91

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and Kyle Lowry added 19 on Tuesday, leading Toronto to a 104-91 victory at Indiana.

The Atlantic Division-leading Raptors (30-15) overcame a sluggish first quarter to pick up their third straight win. The victory also gave Toronto a franchise record for most wins before the All-Star break.

Rodney Stuckey scored 22 points and Solomon Hill finished with 15 to lead Indiana (16-31), which has lost eight of nine.

Toronto took control in the second quarter with a 20-0 run, which turned a 32-21 deficit into a 41-32 lead. Indiana spent the rest of the game playing catch-up.

The Pacers tied the score once, at 43-43, and got as close as 58-53 midway through the third quarter but never regained the lead.
