The Indiana Pacers visit the Orlando Magic on Friday night in a re-match of a first-round playoff matchup last season. The Magic have since made major changes with Dwight Howard heading to the Lakers.Now the Magic are just trying to pull together a decent lineup with a year in the tank appearing more valuable than a year in the middle of the Eastern Conference.
As for the Pacers, they will try to play the Magic in regular-season form with the available players in Frank Vogel's playing rotations. Danny Granger isn't expected to play and George Hill remains questionable with minor injuries.
