The Indiana Pacers look to win their third-straight game tonight when they face the Orlando Magic at the Amway Arena.

The Magic boast several lethal weapons from behind the arc to go along with Superman in the paint. Needless to say, winning will be a challenge for the Pacers. Not helping matters is the fact that the Magic lost the final two road games on their recent West Coast swing. So now they're home and hungry for a win.

Mike Wells reports from Orlando that Dahntay Jones will be a game-time decision depending on how his hip feels. If Dahntay can't go who will start in his place is unknown, although Jim O'Brien is considering Luther Head which would add another to the growing list of lineup combination you never thought you'd see before the season started.
