The Pacers will look to avoid trouble lurking on the road when they visit the Orlando Magic on Sunday night. The Pacers cruised past the Magic last Monday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, but on any given night, the NBA can make you pay if you don't show up ready to play at a high level.
The Magic proved that on Friday when they cashed in a dunk at the buzzer by Tobias Harris to beat Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Amway Center. Last night in Utah. the Miami Heat were stung by the Jazz which pushed the Pacers lead in the East to four games. Those two results should have the Pacers prepped and ready to go at tip time tonight.
Lance Stephenson expects to be back for the Pacers. The Magic will have Jameer Nelson back in the lineup as well. Nelson sat out the game in Indy on Monday, so that moves rookie Victor Oladipo back to a reserve role.
