(ORLANDO, FL) - The Indiana Pacers enjoyed a day off on Thursday. They will return to the practice court today as they get ready for Game 4 of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series with the Magic in Orlando.
The Blue-and-Gold own a two-games-to-one lead after knocking off the Magic 97-74 in Game 3 Wednesday night at the Amway Center in Orlando.
Danny Granger came out of a mini shooting slump, scoring a playoff career-high 26 points on 9-for-16 shooting from the field in Game 3.
Indiana has come out of the locker room with guns blazing throughout the series, building early first quarter leads and taking control of Games 2 and 3 with outstanding performances in the third quarter. Those performances have Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy questioning the effort of his starters.
The Pacers never trailed in Game 3 and have taken away the momentum the Magic earned from closing out Game 1 on an 11-0 run to pull out an 81-77 come-from-behind win.
The series will return to Indianapolis for Game 5 on Tuesday night. If the Magic can force a sixth game, the series will return to Orlando for that game on Friday, May 11th.
