Pacers Need A Better Offensive Showing Tonight In Orlando

Last updated on Friday, March 8, 2013

(Orlando, FL) - The Indiana Pacers need a better offensive showing tonight when the Eastern Conference contenders visit the Orlando Magic.

Indiana blew a 10 point lead in the fourth quarter against the Boston Celtics Wednesday night, losing 83-to-81 on a last second layup by Jeff Green.

The Pacers have lost twice since the All-Star break, both games at home, and are tied for the second best record in the East at 38-23.

The Magic defeated the Pacers in the first meeting between the two teams, a 97-86 result in Orlando on January 16th, and were competitive in a 97-96 loss at the Miami Heat Wednesday.

Orlando is 17-45 on the season and have virtually no chance at making the playoffs.

Point Guard Jameer Nelson, the team's second leading scorer, will miss tonight's contest against the Pacers with a knee injury.

Tipoff from the Amway Center is at 7:00.
