The Magic take on the Pacers in a playoff rematch Friday evening at 7 Eastern. The game will not be televised in the Orlando market.
Orlando is winless in its four games of the 2012/13 preseason and is coming off a 112-86 drubbing against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. DeQuan Jones scored 22 points in 44 minutes for the Magic, who were playing on the second night of a back-to-back, which scheduling prompted coach Jacque Vaughn to rest regular starters Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Hedo Türkoğlu, Glen Davis, and Nikola Vučević.
The Pacers improved to 2-1 on the preseason in their last outing, a 102-98 victory against the Atlanta Hawks wherein Paul George scored 20 points. Combo guard George Hill hopes to make his preseason début Friday after nursing an injury to his left thumb.
