Norman Powell was the second-round pick in Masai Ujiri's trade of Greivis Vasquez to Milwaukee. Toronto also got a protected 2017 first. Good deal.

Paul George is getting what he wants offensively. He leads all scorers with 17 points. The question for the Pacers in the second half is who is going to step up and help him?

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Toronto has gotten 14 points from its bench so far -- six each from Cory Joseph and Norman Powell. Raptors 42 Pacers 38 late second quarter.

Raptors G Kyle Lowry who's already playing hurt got crushed on a screen and stayed down for a bit before getting back up. He's been toughing it out this series.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

After going 1/10 in Game 5 -- Rodney Stuckey has responded in a major way the last two nights. He is a combined 6/7 in the last two games and has 15 points. A solid veteran presence when Pacers need it most.

Interesting note from ESPN Stats and Info: "Entering this postseason, 7 seeds were a combined 5-59 against 2 seeds in the 1st round... that's the same record as 8 seeds have against 1 seeds, so its just as unlikely. Spurs over Mavericks in 2010 is last one."
