Oladipo Returns, Leads Pacers To Victory Over Magic

Last updated on Tuesday, November 28, 2017

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Victor Oladipo made his return to the Pacers lineup and led Indiana to a 121-109 victory over the Orlando Magic.

Oladipo made his return from a bruised knee that caused him to miss Saturday's game against Boston and led the Pacers with a game-high 26 points to go with six rebounds and five assists. Oladipo was red-hot from all over the floor, hitting 11-of-14 shots and going 4-for-6 from 3-point range.

"It felt pretty good to be out there again playing," he said. "It was tough watching the last game."

Bojan Bogdanovich added 22 points while Damontas Sabonis scored 19 and added eight rebounds.

Pacers coach Nate McMillan was impressed with his team's effort, especially Oladipo's performance.

"When a guy is playing with that type of confidence, we try to put the ball in his hands and let him make plays."

The Pacers scored fifteen 3-pointers in the game and improved to 12-9. They next take on the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
