Recap


Leandro Barbosa had 18 of his season-high 29 points in the first half as the host Toronto Raptors halted a three-game losing skid with a 108-98 win over the reeling Indiana Pacers on Friday.

Barbosa's big first half contributed to Toronto's 62-48 advantage at the break. The Raptors (18-47) shot 53.1 percent for the game despite making just 4 of 16 attempts from 3-point range.

DeMar DeRozan added 16 points while James Johnson and Jose Calderon had 13 apiece as Toronto handed the Pacers (27-38) their sixth consecutive loss. The defeat, coupled with Charlotte's 97-92 win over Portland, dropped Indiana into an eighth-place tie with the Bobcats in the Eastern Conference standings.

Toronto shot 59.5 percent in the first half and was never seriously challenged the rest of the way. Reggie Evans had 16 of the Raptors' 46 rebounds while rookie Ed Davis added 13 boards.

Danny Granger led Indiana with 25 points while Tyler Hansbrough added 20 in defeat.
