Once again, the Pacers look to bounce back at home after a frustrating road loss.

NBA: Orlando Magic at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers wrap up their season series with the Magic on Saturday night, looking to bounce back from a frustrating late loss in Boston on Friday.

The Magic lead the series 2-1, winning the last meeting at the Fieldhouse at the beginning of March, 117-112. The Pacers played that one without Domas Sabonis, not to mention Victor Oladipo, but a fourth-quarter surge by the Magic made the difference.

The Pacers remain desperate for Ws with six games to go, trying to work their way back into the fourth spot in the East. Meanwhile the Magic are equally motivated, if not more so as they sit a half game out of the final playoff spot in the East. A strong finish to the regular season could see the Magic bounce up to sixth place with four teams bunched within a game and a half for the final three spots.
