Rudy Gay hits the overtime game-winner to beat the Pacers (VIDEO)

Feb 8, 2013, 11:52 PM EDT

Rudy Gay was just 3-13 from the field and scored six total points through three quarters of the Raptors’ win over the Pacers on Friday. Indiana led 72-64 after three at home, and was poised to close it out against a Toronto team that it had simply been better than to this point in the season.

But Gay got going in the fourth, and then buried the Pacers near the end of the overtime session. He played all 17 minutes of the final two periods, and scored 17 points in that stretch to carry his new team to victory.

This jumper over (All-Star) Paul George was the shot that sealed it. He had George in isolation, and simply dribbled to his spot, rose up, and drained the shot over his defender as though he wasn’t even there.

Gay is averaging 24.7 points in four games with the Raptors, up from between 16 and 17 points per game while he was with the Grizzlies for the bulk of the first part of this season.

    Great team effort , but we miss Jose. Lowdry is out of control back to back games in crutch time. Rudy bailed him out time and time again.

    It’s interesting how both Gay and George are constantly compared to T-Mac.

    After watching J.V. get thrown to the ground like a piece of garbage, maybe it’s time for David Stern to take a long look at his referries and start fining them for their completely unsatisfactory work.
