This one could get tricky.

Magic have had two days off and the Pacers played a hard fought game last night.

Indiana is also unlikely to have any of their top 3 bigs available.

If Charlotte loses to Boston in the early game today, the Pacers can tie for the 8th seed with a win against us.

Not sure if that's going to be the starting lineup or not.

Indiana's bench is littered with Magic killers and we had a previous game thread on how horrible Bamba's defense is so I am pretty sure we will lose today despite their lack of bigs.

Lol. Mo might be starting. Plus is he really responsible for guarding every player?

His rim protection is -7.3. That's a drop off from -10.5 last year. Just pointing out that, because one of the comments after last game was that Mo doesn't even try to protect the rim.

We'll probably win this one. The Pacers have no big guys.
