Magic Vs. Pacers Final Score: Orlando Gets Hot In Second Half, Beats Indiana 102-83

The Orlando Magic bounced back from their miserable performance against the Boston Celtics with an impressive road win over an improved Indiana Pacers team. The Magic got hot in the second half to cruise to a 19-point win. Despite being in foul trouble throughout the first half, Dwight Howard set the Magic franchise record for points. He finished with 14 points and nine rebounds. But it was the Magic's improved shooting, particularly from behind the arc which led to the strong rebound on the second night of a back-to-back.

Orlando shot better than 40 percent from behind the arc, with Ryan Anderson drilling five of seven attempts from downtown. Anderson went 0 for 8 on Monday night in Boston, but came back strong to lead the Magic with 24 points against the Pacers. J.J. Redick and Glen Davis also chipped in with double figures off the bench.

Orlando now heads home, where they will host Thursday the same Boston team they held them to a franchise-low 56 points earlier this week.
