The Indiana Pacers host the Orlando Magic at BLF as both teams prepare for a season with new face playing key roles.
Rookies Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton figure to be mainstays in the Magic playing rotation from the start of the season. Their role may increase in a hurry with two other key players currently sidelined. Both Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye suffered spained ligaments in their respective right knees which has them out indefinitely.
As for the Pacers, at this point in preseason the opponent is less important than the effort given by the collective group. At times, things looked easy for the Pacers in their preseason opener on Tuesday. Key players battling for spots in the playing rotation should get even more minutes in game two as Frank Vogel continues building his team up toward being ready for the season opener in three weeks.
