Pacers Back At Home To Take On Orlando

Last updated on Tuesday, January 24, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers return home for one game as they face the Orlando Magic tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Blue and Gold are coming off a three-game west coast road trip during which they beat the Warriors and the Lakers after losing game one in Sacramento.

The Pacers are 11-4 overall and 5-0 at the Fieldhouse this season. Indiana enters play tonight trailing first-place Chicago by three games in the Central Division.

They are catching the Magic on the back end of a back-to-back.

Orlando was pounded by the Celtics 87-56 last night In Boston.

The 56 points was a franchise-record low for the Magic.

The loss combined with Atlanta's win at Milwaukee drops Orlando a game behind the first-place Hawks in the Southeast Divison.

Following tonight's game, the Pacers hit the road for another three-game trip.

They start in Chicago on Wednesday night before heading on to Boston for a Friday night game.

The road trip concludes with a rematch against the Magic Sunday evening in Orlando.
