Not bad for a guy with a bad back.

Leandro Barbosa, who missed practice Thursday with a sore back and who was getting treatment even as the game was going on, sparked the Raptors to a 108-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers at the Air Canada Centre on Friday night.

The backup guard, affectionately known as The Brazilian Blur, scored 29 points — including 14 in a stellar second quarter — as Toronto snapped a three-game losing skid.

"The first quarter the guys played well but, yeah, when Leandro came in you could tell it was one of those nights where he felt good and had it going," said coach Jay Triano.
