The Indiana Pacers shut the door on the Orlando Magic late, scoring 14 straight points to build a double figure lead, with George Hill sinking in the dagger to cap a 19-3 run that led Indiana to the victory late. Hill had a 23 point night with seven rebounds to help close the win. Paul George had 19 in the first quarter, finishing with 27 points and seven assists, but struggled with six turnovers.

Indiana struggled to shake the Magic most of the night with 18 turnovers leading to 34 Orlando points. The Pacers ended up winning the turnover battle late, forcing 22 while hitting 11 three pointers to help boost their chances at victory. Myles Turner reached double figures off the bench with 10 points and Chase Budinger played well with six points on a pair of threes, but made a series of plays while in the game to help the Pacers.
