It’s the first of three meetings between the Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers.
Orlando arrives following consecutive matches versus the Bulls where they won both taking the In Season match 103-97 on Friday.
The Pacers also played consecutive games in Philly splitting the pair and winning the second match 132-126.
Indiana holds the all-time record having won 71 of the 123 meetings between the clubs. The Eastern Conference foes played four times last season with the Pacers taking three of the four matches.
As one of the Cinderella teams of the season, the Magic have taken a step but the offense and in particular the backcourt are areas the team needs to shore up.
None of their point guards shoot the 3-ball well and Paolo Banchero is averaging more assists (4.9) than each of them with only Markelle Fultz (4.0) the only guard averaging more than 2.9 assists per game.
Through six games, the Magic ranks 25th offensively (108.8) and is tied for second defensively (106.5) while possessing the 10th-rated net differential of plus 2.4 through 12 matches.
Orlando is one of the better bets against the spread possessing a 9-3 record through 12 games.
Magic Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Markelle Fultz, PG (downgraded to OUT — knee)
- Wendell Carter Jr., C (OUT indefinitely — hand)
- Jalen Suggs, PG (upgraded to probable— undisclosed)
Defense is an afterthought in Indiana as they approach each match looking to run and blow out their competition.
In fairness, so far it’s working but when the playoffs come and teams can game plan to stop them in transition and on the perimeter they’ll need a better defensive effort.
Eight Pacers are averaging double-digit scoring while seven are shooting between 37.6% and 66.7% from the perimeter.
Indiana possesses the top-ranked offense (122.0) but their defense lacks something to be desired – – tied for 28th (118.5) while their plus +3.5 net differential registers ninth overall.
Like their opponent the Pacers are another solid against the spread bet with a 7-4 record emulating their win/loss results.
Pacers Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Daniel Theis, C (OUT — bought out and acquired by Clippers)
- Jalen Smith, PF (upgraded to probable — head)
- Andrew Nembhard, PG (OUT — back)

Free Orlando Magic vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Indiana’s four-best perimeter shooters (38.6%) will face off against the Magic’s 13th-ranked perimeter defense (35.4%) in this match. Additionally, the Pacers rank third in fast break points and fourth for scoring in the paint.
The biggest question is whether the Magic can slow the Pacers from scoring at any of the three levels and also score enough to capture the win.
I’m not concerned about Orlando scoring but I don’t think they’ll be able to bottle the Pacers juggernaut offense so I’ll take Indiana to win and cover.
