The Indiana Pacers will be on full display tonight when they play their second preseason game against the Orlando Magic at Conseco Fieldhouse. Unlike the game at Memphis on Wednesday, not only is this a home game but it will also be aired on Fox Sports Indiana along with the radio broadcast.
All of this is great news for fans looking to get a glimpse of the new-look Pacers. Unfortunately I'm several states away but I'll try to make the best of it and rely on the community here to share the highlights. Don't forget, if you are at the Fieldhouse, the mobile version of Indy Cornrows makes it a snap to comment.
Rebounding and defense remain the Pacers' biggest concerns and playing a team like the Magic will put those weaknesses to the ultimate test.
For an Orlando perspective, check out Orlando Pinstriped Post. Also, after the jump, check out a few links of interest on the Pacers preseason, along with Gordon Hayward's preseason debut with the Utah Jazz.
Leave your thoughts and observations on the game or any of the links in the comments.
