Pacers Vs. Magic Score Update: Indiana Takes A 12-Point Lead After Three Quarters.

After three quarters at Amway Center, the Orlando Magic trail the Indiana Pacers 80-68. Coming on the heels of two woeful games on the offensive end of the floor, the Magic are shooting 50 percent from the floor but have been unable to get any stops against Indiana. On Friday in New Orleans, Dwight Howard was the only Magic player to score in double figures. Tonight, four players are already in double digits, with Howard leading the way with 19 points and nine rebounds. With Jameer Nelson out, Chris Duhon has provided a nice spark in his place to help out with 14 points.

But 16 turnovers have countered the streaky shooting to keep Orlando behind. Danny Granger and George Hill have not faced much resistance on the wing, adding 18 and 13 points respectively. The Magic have 12 minutes to get back in it and avoid a three-game losing streak.
