The Orlando Magic (5-12, 8-8-1 ATS) will travel to the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Monday night to take on the Indiana Pacers (9-6, 10-5 ATS) in Eastern Conference NBA action. Those teams faced off Saturday, with the Pacers holding on to a 114-113 home win in their first of four meetings during the season.

Magic moment

The Orlando Magic are not a good team as they rank 22nd in the NBA and have 109.9 points per game at 34.5 percent from beyond the arc. Head coach Jamahl Mosley spoke about Franz Wagner’s inability to lay up and Mo Bamba’s inability to initiate the rebound in their recent loss.

“I don’t think you could ask for a better look. He comes to the river. We had a chance for the offensive rebound. There was a lot of physicality going on down there. … You couldn’t ask for a better look to win the game, basically a layup on the edge.

Defensively, they are right on the league average with 112.9 points per game. They need to be able to keep playing hard as they’ve struggled with a number of injuries throughout the season and with a young squad it could also be a chance for some players to improve.

Pacers play well

The Indiana Pacers are off to a solid start this season and are playing incredibly well on the offensive side of the court as they are fifth in the NBA so far with 116.4 points per game. Point guard Tyrese Haliburton spoke about how this team has grown together over the course of the season.

β€œIt’s the first time we’ve been through this as a group, but it keeps happening when we’re on the track in tight games. You just have to find out along the way. We grow together as a group.”

Their defense still needs some beefing up as they remain 19th in the NBA this season with 114.9 points per game played. They struggle to defend the three as they allow 38.1 percent of the three against them to be knocked down.
