INDIANAPOLIS — The Pacers evened the score with Toronto Monday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

One day after losing to the Raptors at home, Indiana came out on top, 129-114.

Domantas Sabonis left the game early with a knee injury, but Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner picked up the slack. Brogdon finished with a career high 36 points, along with seven rebounds and nine assists.

Turner had 21 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots. "I just know when somebody goes down, somebody has to step up," Turner said about Sabonis.

Jeremy Lamb came off the bench for 22 points.

The Raptors went up by two points early in the fourth quarter, but it was all Indiana after that. The Pacers outscored Toronto 29-12 over the rest of the game.

Indiana spent a lot of the night at the free throw line, hitting 37 of 45 attempts.

The win improves the Pacers record to 10-7, while Toronto is 7-10.

About the Sabonis knee injury, Coach Nate Bjorkgren said the team should know more Tuesday.
