The Indiana Pacers will visit again the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. This is the third time these teams face off this season, Orlando has the lead 2-0.
The Pacers just lost against the Magic last Monday 119-103. Tyrese Haliburton had 23 points and seven assists for the Pacers. Buddy Hield added 18 points in Indiana's ninth loss in 11 games. Hield and Duane Washington Jr. hit 3-pointers during a 10-0 run midway through the second quarter that gave the Pacers their biggest lead of the game at 49-38.
In their last 10 games the Pacers are 2-8, averaging 113.3 points, 43.9 rebounds, 25.7 assists, 6.8 steals and 4.9 blocks per game while shooting 47.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 119.3 points.
The Pacers were superior in FG% and 3pts against Magic but their problem were the turnovers and the points in the paint.
The Magic have won their last 2 games but they're still only 7-21 at home this season. In the last game vs Pacers Wendell Carter Jr. had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Markelle Fultz scored 10 points in his return from injury and eight Orlando players scored in double figures as the Magic beat the Indiana Pacers 119-103 on Monday night.
The team is 4-6 in the last 10 games, averaging 109.2 points, 44.4 rebounds, 25.1 assists, 7.3 steals and 4.0 blocks per game while shooting 44.4% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 117.5 points per game.
Indiana are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games.
Indiana are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against Orlando.
Orlando are 5-13 SU in their last 18 games at home.
Orlando are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.
The Pacers had an 11 lead at one moment in the game but the turnovers were a big problem because Orlando turn them in points. Indiana will do some adjustments to face the same team again and I think they can get the win this time. It's always hard to beat the same team twice in a row, so I'm taking the Pacers.
PICK: Pacers +2 (-110)
