What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Tony East @TEastNBA
Wanamaker and McConnell at the same time. Interesting. Better defensive unit than having Jeremy Lamb in right now.
And as I type this, Duarte subs in for Wanamaker. Nice sting from the 3rd PG. – 8:26 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Myles Turner is just an awesome shot-blocker. – 8:25 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Brad Wanamaker becomes the fourth sub off the Pacers’ bench. Surprised Torrey Craig hasn’t seen the court yet. He was brought in to scrap and defend bigger wings like Anunoby. – 8:22 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Pacers up 1, 5:50 left in first half; Raptors
Perhaps not the greatest game ever but at least it’s close – 8:21 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
The Raptors’ offence, without Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby, has some shortcomings. – 8:15 PM

Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
A 21-3 Wizards run…after the Raptors closed the Celtics home opener 55-25.
Not ideal.
Wizards by 12 early 2nd. – 8:13 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Okay, so Fred VanVleet set career single-game highs in assists and turnovers the other night and now he’s 3 rebounds away from a career night in that stat, too – 8:11 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
OG Anunoby, who came into this season averaging 7.3 FGA for his career, took 11 shots in the first quarter. His 16 points lead the way for the Raptors, who are up 29-24. Teams are shooting a combined 2-for-17 from 3 (Pacers 0-8) – 8:11 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Pacers trail the Raptors 29-24 after 1 quarter. Raptors running everything through Anunoby, Pacers trying a balanced attack with paint touches galore. Toronto’s length really giving the Pacers issues once they reach the lane – 8:11 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers and Raptors both shot 11/25 in the 1st, but the Pacers missed all eight 3-point tries. Anunoby, who is averaging 17.5ppg this season, already has 16.
Came down to the Raptors getting to the paint and scoring too easily. – 8:11 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
OG has 16 points, VanVleet has six rebounds, and the Raptors lead 29-24 after a quarter. – 8:10 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
OG basically punishing whichever Pacer is (not) guarding him, he’s got 16 and Raptors up five after a quarter – 8:08 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
TJ McConnell thought he had Banton beat, Dalano blocks his jumper from behind. True to form, the rook has come in and given the Raps a jolt of energy. He’s also got 2 fouls in 4 minutes… but, as usual, he’s everywhere on the court. – 8:06 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
OG Anunoby is having his way against the Pacers and specifically Jeremy Lamb the last few minutes. He has 12 of their 22pts and is getting to the rim at will. – 8:02 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Nobody in this Pacers unit has a chance defending OG. He’s just bullying everybody. – 7:58 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Impressive post moves from OG in the quarter. He said he needed to be more assertive after his quiet 2nd half vs Dallas over the weekend – thought he was solid vs CHI, and he’s been excellent so far tonight. 11 of the Raptors’ 21 points and (an assertive!) 9 FGA in 9 minutes. – 7:57 PM

Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
The first 3 off the bench for the Raptors…all 3 Canadians, together
🍁🍁🍁 – 7:54 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Banton about to check in ahead of Dragic. – 7:53 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Banton and Boucher will be first Raptors subs
That’s new – 7:52 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Early minutes here for Dalano Banton and Chris Boucher who are about to check in – 7:52 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
On the one hand, the Raptors quick, peskiness has forced Sabonis into two turnovers. On the other, he’s got two tip-ins on the offensive glass. – 7:47 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors by 1 at first timeout, Sabonis is going to be an issue – 7:47 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Malcolm Brogdon just walked over and gave Nate Bjorkgren a big hug – 7:39 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
No change for Raptors starters
VanVleet, Trent, Barnes, Anunoby, Achiuwa
0-3 home start to the season on the line – 6:45 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Caris LeVert won’t play tonight – 6:09 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Caris LeVert is not playing tonight, Rick Carlisle says. He did more contact work today, but Carlisle says he is still working his way back. – 6:02 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Same starters for Raptors vs. Indiana: Trent jr.; Anunoby; VanVleet; Achiuwa and Barnes. – 6:02 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Caris LeVert will not make his season debut tonight in Toronto. Still ramping up to his return. – 6:02 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Raptors head coach Nick Nurse: “(Chris) Duarte is playing really well and I think people have underrated him, obviously. We need to give him the attention he deserves.” – 5:49 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Freddie Gillespie is next.
On his experience with the Raptors: Getting the call-up was like the hard work being rewarded. It was great to get that opportunity for real minutes and to get in that developmental system, and learned a lot from those vets. – 3:12 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jason March on if he’s excited to have more assignment players to come in a lot easier: “Absolutely.” He said it was great to get on the floor last year, but it didn’t feel like a season. Pointed out Freddie Gillespie using the Gubble to get a NBA opportunity in Toronto – 2:43 PM

Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Looking back, you can see how Zach LaVine’s left thumb, which he said was already jammed, could have led to this crucial turnover and costly sequence in the final 2 1/2 minutes at Toronto on Monday.
LaVine tried to go right to left and simply lost control. pic.twitter.com/TPbfRbK7j52:42 PM

Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Zach LaVine had his left thumb taped up today, said he participated in parts of practice. Said the injury happened in the Toronto game, too soon to tell how it will affect him as he tries to play through it. #Bulls1:41 PM
