    Raptors Republic:
    Gameday: Raptors @ Pacers, Feb. 8

    The Raptors are off to Pawnee to take on Roy Hibbert, Leslie Knope and the Indiana
    Pacers. The Pacers are a very hot team, having railed off five straight victories over
    some decent Eastern Conference competition. The Pacers are big, play slow and grind
    out the game at the defensive end, which will be an interesting match-up for the
    Raptors. The Raps, of course, have played three straight games against teams that
    play faster (going 1-2), two of which also play small (0-2). So it will be a fresh look
    to evaluate Rudy Gay against, anyway.

    To help us out with the analysis, Jared Wade of 8 Points 9 Seconds, the True Hoop
    Network Pacers blog, was kind enough to answer a few questions for us.

    The Pacers have gotten red-hot, going 21-8 after a 10-11 start. What’s changed
    for the team since early December?


    The most obvious change has been Paul George turning into one of the best players
    in the NBA. He has been a high-level defender since he entered the league and could
    always contribute in various ways on offense, but he was really shaky early in the
    season. But since December 3, he has averaged 19.8 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 4.2 apt and 2.1
    spg while shooting 44.2% from the floor and 39.7% from behind the arc.

    Frank Vogel has also settled into its rotations and it has led to a beastly starting
    lineup. In November, Sam Young and Gerald Green often got starts and crunch-time
    minutes over Lance Stephenson. But Stephenson has been a prominent member of
    all the team’s best lineups and the now-entrenched starting unit has been one of the
    best in the league. Even individually, Lance has been having some big games of late
    and, still, catching teams off guard with burst of points and dimes in short stretches.

    Roy Hibbert has been disappointing this season, at least on the offensive end.
    What’s behind Hibbert’s struggles this year?


    It’s a mystery. Tim Donahue did a big analysis on Hibbert’s shot location and shot
    type right before the new year, and he’s just missing a ton of shots that he has
    always hit at a decent rate throughout his career. One hope is that he is still
    struggling through a wrist injury, but it clearly goes deeper than that. He just is
    inactive, passive and unable to exert any force down low in some games.

    Have you ever been to Pawnee? Is it as wonderful as it seems? How do you
    get there from Indianapolis?


    I have not. I’m not sure. I actually live in New York and am currently ducking
    snowflakes. It seems like a wonderful place, however, and any town that holds

    I think that we are going to have issues with Lowry, DeRozan and Gay. That's a super athletic scoring rotation.

    Hopefully Hibbert and West will do very well against Jonas V, Aaron Gray and Amir Johnson. I'm praying that Aaron Gray doesn't have another career night against the Pacers. Seriously....someone has to box him out.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I'd be happy with him hitting the shots that he takes.

    I'm sure that the guys remember that the Raps beat them earlier in Indiana and are not going to let it happen again.

    If Andrea Bargnani comes back tonight and makes a difference in this game, I'll be livid. The guy sat on the bench for half the Clown Babies' season and now he comes back? Unacceptable.

    They are not exactly healthy yet. Valanciunas is not 100% and he is much more important than Bargnani.
