Despite a horrendous start on the road last night against the Houston Rockets, the Indiana Pacers are slowly making a big comeback, recovering from a 20-point deficit and earning their third straight win, now at 8-6 of the season stands .
On the second night of a back-to-back, the Pacers return home to start a four-game home game, starting with a two-game series against the young Orlando Magic, who also come from a game last night.
Last season, the Magic won the season series, winning two out of three contests against the Pacers. Indiana leads the all-time series 68-51 and has won seven of their last nine straight duels.

Pacer Injury Report
Chris Duarte (ankle) and Daniel Theis (knee) will be out against New Orleans. Meanwhile, Tyrese Haliburton, who injured his ankle in the waning moments of last night’s game, and Kendall Brown (Health and Safety Protocols) are currently listed as game choices.
Indiana Pacers vs. Orlando Magic Prediction
Both teams are tired in the second leg of a duel. While the Pacers could very well go into this game without Tyrese Haliburton, their leaders in points and assists per game, expect the home-team role players to step up to the plate and ultimately an inconsistent Orlando Magic team with their depth for their fourth overpower straight victory.
Pacer 111, Magic 106
