The Indiana Pacers take on the Orlando Magic tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in a key matchup between two teams off to strong starts in the Eastern Conference.

Orlando may take issue with that last statement considering they were drubbed by a short-handed Boston Celtics team last night playing without Ray Allen or Rajon Rondo. Still, only managing to score 56 points. Not good news for the Pacers as you can expect the Magic to show a little pride and bounce back with a better effort tonight.

Of course, the big matchup to watch will be Roy Hibbert dealing with a broken nose and Dwight Howard. Sounds like Hibbert will mask up for the game to take on Superman so hopefully it doesn't mess with his mojo. With the next three games on the road, the Pacers need to maintain the home Fieldhouse advantage they've enjoyed so far this season.
