INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers, yet again, have proven that that they’re not exactly keen on playing from ahead Friday evening. The East’s No. 7 seed came back from 12 down in the first quarter to top the Toronto Raptors in what turned into a 19-point blowout win, taking Game 6 by a 101-83 score and sending the first round series back to Ontario for a deciding Game 7 on Sunday.

Indiana had to work to extend its season, shortening its rotation and playing its stars extended minutes with its figurative backs against the wall. No, Paul George didn’t have to play all 48 minutes in the win as he offered, but he did play every second of the first and third quarters and was well on his way toward a full allotment of fourth quarter ticks before being removed with just under three minutes left in the game with his team up 28 points.
