Welcome to Indiana, David West.

West, the Pacers' primary offseason acquisition, needed only two games to make his presence felt at the end of a close contest.

He didn't do it just on the offensive end of the court; he did it on defense, too.

West made a 14-foot jump shot with 9 seconds remaining to hold off the surging Toronto Raptors and help the Pacers win north of the border for the first time in almost four years, 90-85 on Wednesday at the Air Canada Centre.

"A good win for our club," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "We made some big plays down the stretch. Danny Granger had a couple of 3s, and David West was huge on both ends: his toughness on the defensive end and his shot-making on the offensive end."

West didn't beat the Raptors by bullying his way to the basket or putting the ball on the floor before pulling up for a jump shot.

It was a simple fundamental play learned at a young age.

West teamed with Darren Collison and ran a pick-and-roll play. But instead of rolling to the basket, West popped out to where he calmly made the jumper to give the Pacers a five-point lead.

"When we get the ball in that situation, let's just go to something where we can get a good shot," West said. "Those are the situations I'm real comfortable with. I enjoy being in that spot, having an opportunity when we need a play to be made."
