(ORLANDO, FL) - The Orlando Magic never trailed en route to a 135-111 win over the Indiana Pacers in Orlando.

Mickael Pietrus led the Magic with 27 points and ten rebounds off the bench with Rashard Lewis adding 24 points and Dwight Howard finishing with 22 points and ten boards. Pietrus had missed Orlando's previous twelve games with a broken wrist.

The Magic used a 16-0 run in the first quarter to build a 36-18 lead at the end of the first quarter and were never seriously challenged the rest of the way.

TJ Ford led Indiana with 23 points with Marquis Daniels adding 16 as the Pacers never led in losing their sixth-straight game on the road.

With the loss, Indiana falls to 0-and-3 against the Magic this season.

The blue-and-gold own a five-game winning streak at Conseco Fieldhouse. They open a three-game homestand tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks.
