Dwight Howard aims to become the Orlando Magic's all-time leading scorer Tuesday night as he leads Orlando to Bankers Life Fieldhouse to take on the Indiana Pacers. With eight points, he can break Nick Anderson's mark and claim first place on Orlando's leaderboard.

Following a historically awful loss to the Boston Celtics on Monday, Orlando has the pleasure of taking on a rested Pacers squad which has won seven of its last nine games, has seven players average 10-plus points, and has yet to lose at home. Danny Granger leads the team with 16.1 points, but the Pacers' real strength is defense: in leads the NBA in field-goal percentage allowed (41 percent) and ranks fourth in defensive efficiency.
