The Pacers need to think about playing a full 48 minutes after they stumbled through the first half in Miami before rallying to have a shot at the win down the stretch. Ultimately, the Pacers ended up losing their seventh consecutive game. But after a strong finish, they may be able to pick up where they left off and have a little something for the Magic.
Orlando isn't in any better shape, sitting a half game behind the Pacers in the standings, after losing 10 of their last 12 games while having trouble defending anyone in the process. Injuries haven't helped the Magic either as Tbias Harris missed five games but recently returned and should be available to start against the Pacers.
Indiana will have to keep tabs on former IU star, Victor Olaipo who has been rolling of late and recently agreed to participate in the NBA dunk contest at the All-Star break. Hopefully the Pacers don't get a preview of his show at the Amway Center.
