Indiana Pacers Game Preview: Pacers host Orlando Magic for the second time in three days

The Indiana Pacers are hosting the Orlando Magic Monday night in a replay of a game played Saturday. The Pacers won that fight 114-113 after a strong second half.

The Pacers are one of the most surprising teams this season in the NBA at 9-6, and they’ll move into the top 4 of the Eastern Conference if they win tonight. The Magic are better than their 5-12 record would suggest and troubled Indiana in a game that boiled down to last-minute possession on Saturday.

“They go hard, they have a really interesting group of big guys. They’ve got a lot of length out there, they’re all skillful,” Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said of the Magic Saturday.
