The Orlando Magic were hanging tough with the Indiana Pacers early on in the game, trailing by only six points at halftime but in the second half just couldn't seem to keep up. The Pacers came out in the second half of the game and made a statement, putting down 32 points to Orlando's 17, amassing a big lead that they never relented and going on to win 97-74
Orlando just didn't have the offensive horsepower or the defensive mettle without Dwight Howard in the lineup to control the pace of the game. Glen Davis led Orlando in scoring at halftime with 16 points, scored just six points in the second half. J.J. Redick picked up 13 points off the bench and Jameer Nelson added 10 points, but outside of that the Magic's offense was non-existent.
