The Orlando Magic can run their winning streak to four games tonight with a victory over the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers are off to a solid start thanks to continued improvement from third-year center Roy Hibbert (averaging 16.5 points, 10 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 2.8 blocks) and a better effort on defense. They look like a decent bet to make their first playoff appearance since 2006.
J.J. Redick will return to the Magic's rotation after mising the last two games with a strained back muscle. Pacers point guard Darren Collison is a game-time decision due to a sprained ankle. Veteran stopgap T.J. Ford will get the nod if Collison can't go.
