The Orlando Magic face the Indiana Pacers in round one of the NBA Playoffs. What is the full schedule for this opening series?

The Orlando Magic have a rough road ahead of them in the NBA Playoffs. With forward Dwight Howard out for the playoffs because of his back injury, the Magic can only rely on their outside shooting and hope that Glen Davis plays big inside to ease the loss of Howard. The Indiana Pacers, with forward Roy Hibbert, were a tough out in the NBA Playoffs last season. With an extra year of experience, the Pacers could be one of the more surprising teams this playoff season.

The Magic won three of the four games they played against Indiana this season. But in all four of those games, Howard was available.

The complete schedule of the first round is as follows:

Game 1: Sat. April 28, Orlando at Indiana, 7 p.m., ESPN
Game 2: Mon. April 30, Orlando at Indiana, 7:30 p.m., NBA TV
Game 3: Wed. May 2, Indiana at Orlando, 7:30 p.m., NBA TV
