The Pacers take on the Magic for the second time this season, this time at home after four days off.

The Pacers remain short-handed but in better shape than the Magic who will be without key front court players, Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon. The Pacers expect to have Jeremy Lamb and T.J. McConnell available, but will still be without Malcolm Brogdon and Edmond Sumner (AND VIC).

The Pacers rallied to beat the Magic in the first meeting down in Orlando, surviving a first-half three-point barrage by the Magic. In that game, Doug McDermott and T.J. McConnell were huge off the bench, combining to score 30 points, to complement big nights from Domas Sabonis (21 points, 16 rebounds, 7 assists) and Malcolm Brogond (19 points, 8 assists.
