Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Even without Ron Artest, the Indiana Pacers found more trouble. In a chippy game that saw the Toronto Raptors surprise the Pacers, 102-90, Indiana coach Isiah Thomas and forward Al Harrington were ejected following an altercation early in the fourth quarter. With Artest serving the second of his four-game suspension for his confrontation with Miami coach Pat Riley, emotions boiled over again for the Pacers, who suffered their second straight loss. With 8:02 left, Toronto's Morris Peterson became tangled with Harrington as the two players came downcourt. Apprarently thinking that he was tripped intentionally, Harrington charged at Peterson and the players exchanged shoves. Peterson also was ejected. Things escalated when Thomas ran onto the court and tried to go after Peterson, shouting obscenities at him. Thomas was held back by Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens, likely saving him a suspension. "I'm in the foxhole with my team and if guys are going to take cheap shots at my team, then it's my job to stick up for them and fight for them," Thomas said. "I feel that we're being treated a litte unfairly," Harrington added. "I guess people haven't seen a team that plays this hard and aggressive in a while. I know he tripped me. He knows he tripped me." However, television replays appeared to show that the trip was unintentional. "I thought the trip was accidental," Peterson said. "I didn't do it on purpose. I think it has been blown way out of proportion." Toronto forward Antonio Davis, a former Pacer, thought the incident helped the Raptors. "It gave us a chance to settle down and say, 'Hey, they've done everything that they can throw at us. They've fouled us hard, they've tried to fight us and it's still not working,'" Davis said. The Raptors avoided a season sweep by the Pacers, beating them for the first time in four meetings. Toronto improved to 2-1 since Vince Carter returned to the lineup. In the last week, the Raptors have beaten the top team in each conference. On Sunday, they surprised the Sacramento Kings, 101-97. "Those are two teams we've had trouble beating, especially this year with the Pacers," Carter said. "They've had our number. It's a big win and it gives us confidence. I've always said we need confidence. We want to finish playing until the All-Star break strong." Davis had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Raptors, while Voshon Lenard scored 17 points. Jerome Williams chipped in with 16 and 10 boards and has reached double figures in rebounds in 11 of his last 12 games. The Pacers were sloppy on defense, allowing the Raptors a number of opportunities in transition. Toronto took control in the third quarter and opened an 80-68 lead on Peterson's 3-pointer with 9:03 left. Brad Miller scored 20 points and felllow All-Star Jermaine O'Neal added 17 for the Pacers. O'Neal had just seven points in the second half. "When we don't get the benefit of the doubt with the officials, it frustrates us," O'Neal said. "We just want to play the game, and if a team beats us playing hard, so be it. We're going home now to take care of business against a tough Boston team. That's the best part about the NBA. We didn't play our best game but you get to play the next night and change that." Williams scored eight points in a 10-2 run that gave Toronto a 61-53 lead with 5:47 left in the third quarter. The Pacers closed to 69-66 on Austin Croshere's layup that started the fourth period, but the Raptors responded with an 11-2 spurt. Indiana got no closer than eight in the final minutes. Carter's 3-pointer made it 88-77 with 4:49 to play.
