INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kyle Lowry had 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, Lou Williams scored 24 points, and the Toronto Raptors pulled away for a 117-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.
The Raptors (40-27) set a franchise record by earning their 40th win in just 67 games. They had never achieved that feat in fewer than 70.
Indiana (30-36) lost its second straight despite getting 23 points from George Hill and 20 from Rodney Stuckey.
The Raptors started fast and never trailed, pulling off their first season sweep of the Pacers since 2000-01.
Indiana got within 58-56 early in the third, but the Raptors made four 3-pointers during an ensuing 16-5 spurt and the Pacers couldn’t get closer than seven the rest of the way.
