The Pacers look to start up a brand new winning streak Monday night when they come in the Orlando Magic to Indiana.
After winning 3 straight to get back to .500, the Pacers gave everything they had, but ultimately fell in Cleveland on Sunday afternoon.
As for the Magic, they come in winners of 2 straight after knocking off Toronto at home and Philadelphia on the road.
The Magic are beginning to open some eyes here early on in the NBA season.
While they still sit at just 3-4, they have given everyone a run for their money in all 4 losses.
In 2 October losses, the Magic fell by just 1 against the Wizards in the final seconds and it took OKC a huge 2nd half comeback and a Russell Westbrook buzzer beater to send it to overtime as the Thunder ended up winning by 3 in double overtime.
Thing were the same to start off November. Orlando fell to Chicago by just 5 and took Houston to overtime in an eventual 119-114 defeat.
This team has impressed bettors as they’ve started this campaign off at 7-0 ATS. That is thanks in large part to F Evan Fournier. He leads the Magic in scoring with 18.7 points per game.
Finally contributing to the scoring was Elfird Payton. Payton was a mess over the first 6 games of the season, but finally found his stroke as he finished with 20 points on 8 of 10 shooting. Payton had 12 of his points come in the 4th quarter.
The Pacers tipped off their season with 3 straight losses and things didn’t look good for them from the outset. Losses at Toronto and at home vs. Memphis and Utah set the pace for them as they looked sluggish and all out of sync.
Then the calendar flipped to November and things completely changed for this Pacers team. Indiana went into Detroit and handled business then returned home for two close wins against Boston and Miami.
Their 3 game winning streak was put to an end Sunday afternoon in Cleveland as Indiana took Cleveland to the brink, but ultimately fell by 4. The Pacers did help backers out as they covered the 7 point spread.
F Paul George continues to lead the way for Indiana as he’s looked extremely impressive. George has posted 3 straight double-doubles and is coming off a 32 point, 11 rebound performance. On the season, the forward is averaging 23 points and 9.3 rebounds.
G Monta Ellis found his stroke in a 25 point showing on Sunday. He finished 10 of 17 from the field and didn’t have a turnover committed.

Free NBA Prediction:
Both teams are still very impressive for their 3-4 records. The Magic will be without Nikola Vucevic for a 3rd straight game, but they have rattled off 2 wins without him.
Indiana has proven to be a tough place to play for opponents, but on the 2nd leg of their back-to-back, the Pacers will battle a lot of fatigue here.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Orlando ATS
This should be a lower scoring, tight game throughout. Expect both defenses to be on top form while the offenses struggle a bit as either team can pull this out late.
