The Magic have lost 4 games in a row to IND, and 5 out of 6 at home to the Pacers. IND beat the Magic 2 weeks ago 93-83, led by Al Harrington's 32 pts. The Magic will have to bounce back after blowing a 7 pt lead with 5 1/2 minutes remaining against MEM on Mon. The Pacers have come from behind their last two wins, so the Magic will have to play a 48 minute game and BHill will hopefully make better use of the bench than he did against MEM. No line out yet, but the Magic will be favored.
