The Orlando Magic look to build on Friday's stunning and emotional win when the Indiana Pacers visit Amway Center on Sunday.

Tipoff between Orlando and Indiana is set for 6:00 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 4:00 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the West-leading Oklahoma City Thunder, 103-102, on Tobias Harris' buzzer-beating slam dunk. Arron Afflalo scored 18 to lead the Magic, who limited Kevin Durant to 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting in the final three periods of their fourth straight home win.

Indiana's last time out: The Pacers forced overtime against the Portland Trail Blazers with a George Hill three-pointer, and then went on to win in the extra frame by a 118-113 final. Hill finished with 37 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and a block in a terrific effort, while David West had 30 points and 10 boards of his own.

The last meeting: These teams met less than one week prior to Sunday's game, with the Pacers blasting the visiting Magic by a 98-79 final. Orlando managed only 29 second-half points as Indiana seized control of the game. Afflalo scored 20 in defeat. Lance Stephenson led a balanced Pacers offense with 15 points and stuffed the stat sheet with 12 rebounds and five assists for good measure. Owing to a sore left knee, Magic point guard Jameer Nelson did not play.
