Pacers forward Solomon Hill couldn’t shoot a potential game-winner in time as Indiana lost to the Toronto Raptors in Game 4 of their first-round series.
The Raptors lead the Pacers 3–2 in their first-round series after a wild finish in Toronto on Tuesday.
The Pacers collapsed in the fourth quarter of the pivotal Game 5, blowing a 13-point lead and scored only nine points as a team in the final frame.
Even after giving up the lead they had built for most of the game, Indiana had a chance to send the contest into overtime. Trailing by three with 2.7 seconds left, the Pacers drew up a play for star forward Paul George. After George couldn’t find a good look near the top of the key, he passed to Solomon Hill, who was wide open on the left wing. Hill swished his open three, but his shot was ruled to have come after the buzzer.
