The Orlando Magic begin a stretch of three straight home games Wednesday night as the Indiana Pacers come to town. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:30 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic fell victim to the Washington Wizards' transition game on Monday, losing by a 120-91 final. The Wizards outscored Orlando, 29-4, in fast-break points as seven players scored in double-figures and Washington set a new season-high in points overall. Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo, one of the NBA's hottest players over the last month, scored two points and missed 10 of his 11 shot attempts.

Indiana's last time out: Indiana prevailed on the road, 103-76, against the Charlotte Bobcats, to win its fifth game in its last six tries. The Bobcats shot just 34.7 percent from the field against the Pacers' defense, which ranks tops in the league.

The last meeting: The Magic and Pacers have yet to square off in 2012/13, but there is history between these teams: Indiana eliminated Orlando in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
