INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Roy Hibbert
netted 24 points Monday and the Indiana Pacers won their first game under interim head Coach Frank Vogel, downing Toronto 104-93.
Vogel got the nod from team President Larry Bird Sunday after the firing of former coach Jim O'Brien, and the team responded with only its second win in nine games.
Hibbert pulled down 11 rebounds and Darren Collison and Paul George each added 16 points, making up for an off night from the Pacers' leading scorer Danny Granger, who was held to 11 points on 3-of-15 shooting from the floor.
The Raptors dropped their 12th straight game, their longest losing streak since 2002-03.
Amir Johnson put in 18 points and collected eight rebounds while Ed Davis and Jose Calderon contributed 13 apiece for Toronto.
