When the NBA officially announced its 2013/14 schedule, it slated the Orlando Magic's season-ending tilt against the Indiana Pacers for 8:00 PM Eastern. That time appears on most game tickets, but it's no longer accurate: the Magic announced on Thursday, April 10th that the game will tip off at 7:00 PM Eastern instead.

Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will still broadcast the game as normal.

Indiana owns a 2-1 edge in the season series between the teams, with each club prevailing on its home floor. The Magic won the most recent meeting, 93-92, as Paul George missed a game-winning two-point try at the buzzer. Coincidentally, Orlando and Indiana opened the 2013/14 season against one another, with the Pacers pulling away in a big third quarter to start their season strong.

According to media reports, Pacers coach Frank Vogel has already said he intends to rest three of his starters Wednesday, as Indiana has already assured itself the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoff bracket.
