The Indiana Pacers face the Southeast Division leading Orlando Magic at the Fieldhouse tonight. The Magic present a host of problems for the Pacers to solve, most revolving around Dwight Howard in the middle. But you can't just focus on Howard, otherwise Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu will lead a 3-ball barage capable of inflicting an L.
Jim O'Brien discusses this in this Video Scouting Report saying the Pacers want their "cake and to eat it to" defensively by covering both Howard and the long range bombers. Also, here's a look at the matchups.
