Pacers Links: Pacers roll past Magic for second straight win

USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers won their second game in a row with heavy minutes and contributions from the bench

The Indiana Pacers were able to treat their last two games like a live practice session, tightening up areas of concern while giving the bench big minutes to find a rhythm and build some confidence as they head into the playoffs.

The Pacers put the clamps on the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night for their second 20-plus point win in as many nights. With David West remaining sidelined due to lower back sprain, Tyler Hansbrough left his bench role to score 14 points as a starter, while the rest of the bench chipped in 35 points.

While no players logged more than 30 minutes in Cleveland, against Orlando, George Hill was the only Pacers starter to play more than 30 minutes (31). The Pacers played four games in five days, so being able to spread the minutes around for that second back-to-back had to make Frank Vogel smile as much as the wins. Plus, with two days off before playing Milwaukee at home on Friday, the Pacers should be as well rested as possible in late March of the NBA season.
