The Indiana Pacers held on late in a back-and-forth overtime thriller against the Orlando Magic to snap their two game losing streak. The Pacers had fallen behind by five in the extra period, but inched back even after having a Malcolm Brogdon three wiped off the board after he stepped out of bounds.

Indiana trailed by three with 44 seconds remaining when Domantas Sabonis bullied his way inside for a layup to cut it to one. After forcing a big stop on an Evan Fournier three, the Pacers eschewed the timeout, finding Brogdon for the game winning three with 2.8 seconds on the clock.

While Brogdon and Sabonis led the way in overtime, it was the play of Myles Turner and Jeremy Lamb that helped get them there. Turner returned after missing the last two games with a fractured right hand, scoring 22 points with nine rebounds and three blocks. Lamb meanwhile had 22 points of his own off the bench, pulling in seven rebounds in the process.

The Pacers move to 9-6 and will face the Toronto Raptors in the first of two games on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. Eastern.
