The Pacers face the Magic and former coach Frank Vogel for the second time this season at the Fieldhouse on Sunday evening.

The Pacers continue a favorable stretch of games on Sunday when they host the Orlando Magic led by Frank Vogel at the Fieldhouse.

This will be the second game of a stretch that has the Pacers playing four of five games at home with a road game at Detroit sandwiched between the home dates. After taking care of business against Chicago on Friday the Pacers hope to continue having fun against a tough matchup in the Magic.

With a large front court and size to spare coming off the bench, the Pacers will have to have a quality shooting night and try to keep Orlando on the run. In their last meeting, the Pacers did just that winning 88-69. But the circumstances of that game had a rested Pacers team facing the Magic the night after a hard-fought win in Oklahoma City. Vogel will have his team ready this time around as they continue trending in a positive direction after playing .500 ball in December.

The Pacers will be without Rodney Stucky and have Monta Ellis listed as questionable after he tweaked an ankle.
