Raptors back on the road against Pacers

( - The Toronto Raptors are in the midst of playing six of eight games on the road and will visit the Indiana Pacers Tuesday evening.

Toronto went 2-1 on a recent road trip and recorded a 114-110 victory over the Detroit Pistons at home Sunday from Air Canada Centre.

DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points and Jonas Valanciunas ended with 20 and 11 rebounds for the Raptors, who shot 53.1 percent and ended a five-game drought without reaching the century mark in scoring.

"I was really pleased with our offensive production," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "We're having our ups and downs. We just have to continue to improve in a lot of areas."

Amir Johnson scored 17 points and All-Star Kyle Lowry ended with 11 and eight assists.

There were 11 lead changes and seven ties, and each team scored 56 points in the paint.

The Raptors are 12-8 on the road and will host Sacramento on Wednesday before visiting Brooklyn and Washington later this week.

Indiana is back home for the next five games versus Toronto, New York, Sacramento, Detroit and Cleveland, and has an 8-11 record in Indy.

The Pacers salvaged the finale of a five-game road trip (1-4) with Sunday's 106-99 victory in Orlando, as David West recorded 20 points, Damjan Rudez chipped in 18 and George Hill netted 17 points.

Rodney Stuckey scored 15 points and Roy Hibbert supplied 11 to go along with a game-high 13 rebounds for the Pacers, who shot 51.8 percent and posted a 31-17 scoring advantage in the fourth quarter.

"We needed a victory," Rudez said. "We're better than our record shows."

A 16-30 record doesn't resemble a winner, but Indiana was able to stop a seven-game losing streak in the Magic Kingdom.

Pacers guard C.J. Miles (groin) is questionable Tuesday and did not play against the Magic. He played only 6:32 in Friday's 89-87 loss in Miami and is averaging 12.4 ppg.

Indiana dropped a 106-94 decision at Toronto on Dec. 12 and Lou Williams paced the hosts with 26 points off the bench. Solomon Hill led Indiana with 16 points and both Stuckey and C.J. Watson ended with 13.

The Pacers and Raptors will meet again March 16 in Indianapolis. Toronto has won three of the last four games in this Eastern Conference series.
