The Toronto Raptors reached a significant milestone in franchise history Friday night, sewing up the No. 1 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.
They did so with a 92-73 victory over the Indiana Pacers that puts the top seed out of reach for the second-place Boston Celtics, assuring the Raptors home-court advantage through the Eastern Conference final. It was Toronto’s 57th win, which set a new single-season franchise record.
Serge Ibaka had 25 points – the most he’s scored in a Raptors uniform – to lead the way for Toronto. He hit five three-pointers and added eight rebounds.
DeMar DeRozan added 12 points on 5-of-17 shooting, along with eight assists, while Kyle Lowry had nine points on 3-of-11 shooting from the field and contributed nine assists.
