The Orlando Magic and the Indiana Pacers last played back in early February, when the Magic were able to come away with the 93-92 home upset. Sometimes games come down to making free throws, and one of the reasons why the Pacers lost was that they made just 11 of their 19 attempts from the charity stripe.
After a high-scoring first quarter that saw the Pacers outscore the Magic 31-28, the rest of the game was back-and-forth until the Magic's offense finally showed up in the fourth quarter. They were able to outscore them 29-18 in that final period and made a key stop with less than 10 seconds left to hold on for the win.
The Magic definitely could not have won the game without the bench contributions, particularly from rookie Victor Oladipo, who put up 23 points in the win. Nikola Vucevic was the best starter in the game for Orlando and was able to contribute 19 points and 13 rebounds for the hosts.
Pacers All-Star Paul George was the top player for his team on the night, scoring a game-high 27 points and bringing down seven rebounds. Shooting guard Lance Stephenson was able to score 16 points and grab nine rebounds in the game, but he also had five turnovers. Indiana's bench was only able to score a total of 17 points in the loss.
