Pacers Travel To Orlando Looking For Third Straight Win

Last updated on Monday, December 14, 2009

(ORLANDO, FL) - The Indiana Pacers go for their third-straight win tonight when they face the Magic in Orlando.

The Pacers managed to squeeze out a 114-113 win at Washington on Saturday night when Mike Dunleavy hit a pair of free throws with one-tenth of a second remaining.

Saturday's win boosted Indiana to 8-13 on the season.

Both wins on Indiana's current streak have come without leading scorer Danny Granger in the lineup.

Granger is not expected to return until mid-to-late January after tearing the plantar fascia in his right foot.

Orlando has dropped its last two as they wound up a four-game western trip on Friday with a 106-103 loss at Phoenix.

The Magic are 17-6 overall this season and are tied with the Atlanta Hawks for first place in the Southeast Division.

Tonight's game is the first of four this season between the Pacers and the Magic.

Orlando has won three straight and five of their last six against Indiana.
