Despite another terrible start on offense, the Indiana Pacers overtook the Orlando Magic in a game of runs and eventually won by a whisker at home, 114-113, to claim their fourth straight win and climb to 9-6 of the season .
The Pacers meet the Magic for the second straight year, although the visitors will certainly be focused on avenging a game that felt like their win last Saturday night despite losing several key players to injury, including the first overall winner Paolo Banchero.
Last season, the Magic won the season series, winning two out of three contests against the Pacers. Indiana leads the all-time streak 69-51 and has won eight of their last ten straight duels.

Indiana Pacers vs Orlando Magic Prediction
The Pacers were clearly bothered by the suffocating length of the Magic on Saturday. However, with a team more rested this time, they should be able to thwart Orlando again from behind a more energetic goal attack. Franz Wagner, Bol Bol and Jalen Suggs have played well lately, but are victorious here with the hosts.
Pacer 112, magic 107
