2012 NBA Playoffs, Pacers Vs. Magic Preview: Orlando Heads Home For Game 3

The Orlando Magic have been playing quite well so far in their first round series against the Indiana Pacers, and they have a chance to regain their one-game lead when they host Indiana in their building on Wednesday night. THe game is scheduled to start at 7:30 and you can find the game on NBATV.

The Magic got exactly what they needed out of the first two games in Indianapolis, a split and home court advantage to bring back to Orlando. But the Pacers are a very strong team and they could easily take one of, if not both, of these games against the Magic. It will be crucially important for the Magic to protect home court advantage here, because you don't want to give the Pacers a chance to close out the series on their home court.
