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.
