The Pacers close out their current three-game homestand on Monday night when they host the Orlando Magic at the Fieldhouse.
After a third-quarter lull led to a loss against the Celtics on Saturday, the Pacers look to bounce back with a win over Frank Vogel's crew who they beat 105-97 in their last road game a week ago. That loss for the Magic was their last home game as they face the Pacers to wrap up a four-game road trip which has kept them winless in their last eight games and 10 of their last 12.
That's not good news for the Pacers since the Magic were beaten soundly in their last two games and should have a dangerous combination of desperation and pride to throw at the Pacers.
The Pacers missed Victor Oladipo (bruised right knee) on Saturdat and hope he is available by game time on Monday. At the morning shootaround, Oladipo sounded hopeful, as well but remains in "we'll see" mode.
