Mandatory Credit: Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The Orlando Magic's postseason begins Saturday, April 28th, as they visit the Indiana Pacers in the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. The NBA announced complete schedules for each playoff series late Thursday night as the regular season officially came to a close.

Orlando finished the season 37-29 and earned the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. This season's is their sixth straight playoff appearance, a franchise-best mark. The third-seeded Pacers finished 42-24 for their best win percentage (.636) since they went 61-21 (.744) in the 2003/04 season en route to a loss to the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals. Indiana's in the playoffs for the second straight season.

The Magic defeated the Pacers three times in four tries during the regular season. Their road to playoff success over the Pacers is made more difficult by the absence of All-Star center Dwight Howard, who will miss the entire postseason as he rehabilitates from back surgery.
