Pacers Links: Lance Stephenson expected back for Pacers against Magic

New, comments

The Pacers hit the road for the last time before the All-Star break when they play the first of back-to-back games in Orlando.


The Pacers should be back at full strength tonight with Lance Stephenson reportedly ready to return to the lineup, according to Candace Buckner.

Stephenson missed the epic battle with the Blazers on Friday while still recovering from a sore back after his fall in Atlanta. Hopefully, Lance doesn't tweak the muscle strain before tip time and can hold up for the full game. Those were likely the concerns which held him out on Friday so hopefully he's past the point of worrying about going full throttle.

A full-throttle Lance with fresh legs should bring the Pacers plenty of energy to get after it on the road against the Magic. With three games in four days remaining before the All-Star break, the Pacers will try to finish strong and extend their current four-game winning streak.
