Magic lead Pacers 51-35 at halftime

After an early 15-8 Indiana Pacers lead, the Orlando Magic flipped the script on a lengthy 32-8 run that has put them in position to lead by 16 over the Pacers at halftime. Orlando has taken advantage of being a step quicker than the Pacers in just about every aspect hitting six three pointers and shooting 48%. The Pacers had nine first half turnovers, leading to 13 Orlando points, getting outscored 13-4 in points off turnovers.

The Magic are also dominating ball movement, assisting on 16 of their 21 field goals, while the Pacers have struggled to even run a competent looking offense. The Pacers bench was also outscored 21-4. Paul George leads Indiana with 14 points. Roy Hibbert is the only other Pacer above four points; he has nine on 4-5 shooting. They'll need some help if the Pacers want to get back in this game. Nikola Vucevic has a 10 & 10 double double in the first half for Orlando.
