The Pacers (19-33) host the Magic (11-41) on Wednesday night with a major winter storm bearing down on Indy.
By the time this game is decided, snow is expected to be mounting outside the Fieldhouse, but with both teams in town, tipping off the game shouldn’t be a problem. The Pacers will once again throw their young and fun players surrounded Caris LeVert and a couple of other vets at the equally young Orlando Magic.
The Magic have the worst record in the NBA but are quite interesting and fun to watch with Cole Anthony emerging and rookies Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner playing and learning on the fly. So, young, talent playing with energy is always fun and both teams are full of those types of player right now, so stay warm and enjoy the effort...and Lance.
