One concern Indiana should have going forward with this series is the rebounding. The Pacers were outrebounded by 14 in Game 1 and 11 in Game 2. That means the Pacers are going to have to shoot the ball well in order to keep winning games. For the season, Indiana is just a 35 percent team from 3-point land and a 44.9 percent team from the field. While the Pacers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 after a loss, the Raptors are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 trips to Indiana and Toronto knows it has to take Indiana seriously after the Game 1 slip up.
