Pacers vs. Magic: Orlando goes for 1st preseason win

The Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers go head-to-head in Friday's NBA preseason action.


The Orlando Magic are still looking for their first win in preseason action when they host the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Earlier in the week, the Magic fell big to the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Before that, Orlando dropped games to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and New Orleans Hornets.

Glen Davis and Gustavo Ayon have led the way for the Magic in most of their games, but it hasn't been enough to propel them to victory.

The Pacers are 2-1 in preseason action, with wins coming against the Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves. Indiana's loss also came against Minnesota.

For the Magic, this is the first year of the rebuilding process after firing head coach Stan Van Gundy, general manager Otis Smith and trading star center Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers. Jacque Vaughn in his first year as head coach of the team.

After the Pacers game, the Magic will take on the San Antonio Spurs.
