The Pacers are playing at half speed and the Magic have some interesting rotations out there as they finished the first quarter. Solomon Hill drained the aforementioned 3-pointer to give the Pacers a five-point lead after one quarter.
Arron Afflalo has seven points on two field goals for the Magic early on. Luis Scola scored six points. Do not expect to see the starters much more than we already have. Certainly for Indiana.
BEST OF MAXIM
ORLANDO, Fla. -- From general manager Rob Hennigan to coach Jacque Vaughn down to the players who finished out the season, the Orlando Magic insist they have improved from the year before.
But going from 20 to 23 victories doesn't represent the type of accelerated growth that makes those around the NBA sit up and take notice. And when Hennigan was asked Thursday what Magic fans...
The Orlando Magic's officials likely won't make a decision on whether to pursue contract extensions for Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris until after they see how free agency impacts the salary cap.
Vucevic and Harris will be eligible for extensions this summer.
"I'd love to stay in Orlando," Vucevic said. "I like it here a lot. I like the team. I like...
The Orlando Magic's game tonight at Amway Center will close their 2013-14 season.
It also could mark the end of the team's Jameer Nelson era.
Nelson might not be with the franchise next season. Although he's about to complete just the second year of a three-year contract, his salary for the 2014-15 season is only partially guaranteed. If the Magic waive him before July...
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic ended their season the same way it began in late October, with a loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Although the Pacers rested three of their regular starters with the playoffs starting this weekend, they had more than enough firepower to post a 101-86 victory over the Magic, who again saw several of their reserves play more than usual.
In addition to...
The Indiana Pacers enter the playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks with a 56-26 regular season record, best in the Eastern Conference. But they have lost nine of their last 15 games and enter with some question marks. On the injury front, center Andrew Bynum has been ruled out for the first round, which is no surprise since he hasn't played in a game since March 15. Erik...
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Rasual Butler and Chris Copeland each scored 19 points as the Indiana Pacers rested their key players and cruised to a 101-86 victory over the Orlando Magic in the regular-season finale for both teams.
The Eastern Conference's top seed ended the season winning three of four to shake off a nasty late-season slump. The Pacers will open the playoffs against eighth...
The Indiana Pacers didn’t play Paul George, Lance Stephenson or David West and sat both Roy Hibbert and George Hill for the entire second half.
Rasual Butler Chris Copeland had 19 points apiece for the Pacers while Maurice Harkless had 14 to lead the Magic.
And now, Ron Swanson related basketball GIFs.
Monday night the Indiana Pacers locked up the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs--and they didn't even have to play (which with the way they have played of late may be a good thing)! So how did they do it?They didn't. Horrible play by the Miami Heat reserves did it for them when they lost to Washington Monday night.@SBNationGIF/Twitter Loading...
“The Orlando Magic plan to enter a single-affiliation hybrid relationship with the NBA Development League’s Erie BayHawks, people familiar with news told USA TODAY Sports. They requested anonymity because the deal has not been finalized.”

The Magic have used the D-League sparingly as they have had to share their affiliation with several other teams...
The Indiana Pacers reserves plus a half of Roy Hibbert and George Hill, minus CJ Watson and Ian Mahinmi, were good enough to blow out the Orlando Magic tonight 101-86. Of course, Orlando had reason to tank as they wanted to lock up the 3rd best chance of securing the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA draft, but it’s always good for the Pacers to finish the regular season on a high...

“Oladipo is a bulldog with long arms, and he has predictably fared better on defense. Real plus/minus paints him as a positive on that end, he can check multiple positions, and he has generated steals without gambling irresponsibly. The Magic have allowed six fewer points per 100 possessions when Oladipo plays. Those numbers are noisy, but it’s tough to find much evidence Oladipo...
