Seeking their third straight win, the Orlando Magic open a three-game roadtrip Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers.

Tipoff between Orlando and Indiana is set for 7:00 PM. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic overcame a 20-point deficit Sunday against the Boston Celtics, gutting out a 103-98 win behind Victor Oladipo's 27-point, seven-board, five-assist performance. Tobias Harris added 21 points, and Maurice Harkless contributed a fine game in reserve, scoring 14 points with three assists and three steals. Brandon Bass continued to torment his former club, scoring 19 and grabbing a career-best 17 rebounds for Boston.

Indiana's last time out: The Pacers picked up their fifth straight victory Sunday against the hapless New York Knicks, who own the league's worst record. Indy used a 32-23 final frame to take the narrow victory, prevailing despite shooting 38 percent from the floor on the road. Rodney Stuckey led the Pacers with 17 off the bench. The ever-reliable David West added 14 points and 11 rebounds.

The last meeting: Orlando squandered a late lead at home against the Pacers, with Damjan Rudež nearly outscoring the host club on his own in the final frame: the sharpshooting rookie scored 16 points, with four three-pointers, in the fourth period while Orlando manaaged 17 as a team. West turned in 20 points to pace Indiana. Nik Vučević scored a game-best 27 in defeat. While the visitors didn't neutralize his scoring, they controlled the paint as a whole, owning a 47-33 edge on the glass.
