The Orlando Magic featured five players in double features in Monday’s 118-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers away at Conseco Fieldhouse. Vince Carter led the heavy offensive campaign, scoring 21 as Jameer Nelson followed up with 15 points and eight assists. Rashard Lewis, Matt Barnes and Dwight Howard contributed a combined 39 for the rest of the starters. JJ Redick and Ryan Anderson came off the bench for 11 and 10, respectively.
This marks the Magic’s fifth consecutive victory with post-season play just around the corner. “Orlando is a superior basketball team in every sense of the word,” said Indiana Coach Jim O’Brien. “They’ll be a tough out for anybody in the playoffs. They will possibly be there at the end this year.”
Orlando has the #2 spot in the East wrapped up heading into their last regular season contest against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. They will likely matchup with the Charlotte Bobcats next week in the first round of the playoffs. Purchase your Orlando Magic post-season tickets with us at Ace!
