Magic Vs. Pacers Final Score: Orlando Gets Hot In Second Half, Beats Indiana 102-83

The Orlando Magic bounced back from their miserable performance against the Boston Celtics with an impressive road win over an improved Indiana Pacers team. The Magic got hot in the second half to cruise to a 19-point win. Despite being in foul trouble throughout the first half, Dwight Howard set the Magic franchise record for points. He finished with 14 points and nine rebounds. But it was the Magic's improved shooting, particularly from behind the arc which led to the strong rebound on the second night of a back-to-back.

Orlando shot better than 40 percent from behind the arc, with Ryan Anderson drilling five of seven attempts from downtown. Anderson went 0 for 8 on Monday night in Boston, but came back strong to lead the Magic with 24 points against the Pacers. J.J. Redick and Glen Davis also chipped in with double figures off the bench.

Orlando now heads home, where they will host Thursday the same Boston team they held them to a franchise-low 56 points earlier this week.

Magic Vs. Pacers Score Update: Indiana And Orlando Tied At 45-45 After One Half

After one half in Indianapolis, the Orlando Magic are tied with the Indiana Pacers 45-45. The Magic are shooting 42.5 percent from the floor just one night after scoring a franchise-low 56 points against the Boston Celtics. Power forward Ryan Anderson put up a bagel in that game, going 0 for 8 from the floor. Tonight, he leads the Magic with 11 points and is a perfect three for three from downtown to pace Orlando on the offensive end. Glen Davis has added seven off the bench.

While Dwight Howard's been relatively quiet, Pacer center Roy Hibbert has had success on the inside against the Magic. He has 12 points and six boards, clearly amped up to face off against the best center in the league. It was a much better performance for Orlando, however, who's looking to bounce back from that woeful night in Boston with a road win on the second night of a back-to-back.
