The Pacers are 5-1 since starting the season 0-3, finding different ways with different players stepping forward to win games. Meanwhile, the Magic have yet to play up to preseason expectations, entering the game with a 3-6 record, but showing signs of life in their last two outings — a one point loss to Dallas and a 32-point win over Memphis.
The Pacers just 1-3 on the and will have a thing front court once again. Myles Turner is questionable and his presence would be quite helpful with Goga Bitadze still sidelined by a concussion. The Magic have a young but big and long front court rotation. The Pacers who are available to play will have to avoid foul trouble or matchups will be an issue.
