The Pacers continue trying to keep pace in the jumbled Eastern Conference playoff race.
The Pacers are back on the road looking for their third consecutive win in Orlando where they will visit the Magic on Sunday night.
The injury report remains full of rotation players that will not be available, but fortunately the Pacers have had some next men up, step up to fill the gap. Most notably, Edmond Sumner who had 22 points with four three balls on Saturday in the team’s win over Detroit.
Oshae Brissett continues to make an impact with a tidy double-double against the Pistons to help supplement to big games from Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert aka the guys who have to deliver to survive at this point.
The Pacers have beaten the Magic twice this season and will try to sweep the series on Sunday. The Magic altered their course drastically at the trade deadline and combined with their own injury issues have been limping along, with just one win in their last ten games.
