Nik Vucevic is doing well offensively but struggling defensively against Roy Hibbert. He has 15 points but just 3 rebounds at the half.
At the half, David West leads the Pacers with 12 points. Roy Hibbert added 8 points and 9 rebounds.
The most glaring stat from the first half? The Pacers made 54.8 percent of their shot attempts.
Halftime: Pacers 51, Magic 49. Vucevic: 15 points, 3 rebounds. West: 12 points, 2 rebounds.
Pacers crushing Magic on glass, 20-13, so far.
The Pacers entered tonight's game ranked 29th in the NBA in offensive efficiency, scoring 97.5 pts per 100 possessions.
The Magic's verbal communication on defense has diminished since the start of the game. They're not as vocal as before.
Evan Fournier's favorite NBA player growing up is Mike Bibby
Four of Orlando's players in this lineup can push the ball ahead themselves after a DReb.
Liked that action Orlando ran there to get Fournier free for a three off a Harris post-up.

The most glaring stat on the stat sheet after 1 quarter? The Pacers have four offensive rebounds.
End of the 1st: Magic 27, Pacers 24. Vucevic: 10 points. West: 8 points.
That was short-lived. The Pacers are on a 10-0 run.
Devyn Marble replaces Aaron Gordon at SF.
Elfrid Payton has assists on 4 of the Magic's first 6 baskets. Nik Vucevic is 4 for 4 from the field.
The Magic are off to a good start. Orlando up 16-9 with 6:50 left in the first quarter. Indiana called a timeout.
The Magic have ramped up their effort tonight, for sure. Then again, it shouldn't have needed ramping up in the first place.
The Magic are much more vocal on defense so far today, including Vucevic, Payton and AGordon.
Aaron Gordon shaved his head.
The Magic have place Ben Gordon on the inactive list and Moe Harkless is activated for tonight's game against the Pacers.
Dewayne Dedmon and Ben Gordon will be inactive for the Magic tonight.
Elfrid Payton is expected to start tonight, Jacque Vaughn said.
Aaron Gordon will start for Magic tonight at SF. Vaughn cites his "defensive presence" as one reason for the move.
Aaron Gordon will start in place of Devyn Marble, JVaughn said.
Again, we'll know more on Payton's playing status as tipoff approaches.
Elfrid Payton is shooting on the game court. Although he's wearing a sleeve on his left knee, my guess is he'll play tonight.
That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. 1 Thessalonians 2:12
Im not on social media like that, but its sad when people will believe a rumor over actual quoted words!!! ........smh
After the game, Payton said his knee was fine.
Elfrid Payton, who had his left knee examined after last night's game, is not listed on the Magic's injury report for 2moro.
Master the situation.
For ye were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord: walk as children of light Ephesians 5:8
Rookie Devyn Marble starting ahead of Tobias Harris has to sting Harris in contract year. He was out of sorts Fri. in ORL's loss to N.Y.
Magic apparently are trying to see how they might play in future without RFA Tobias Harris as a starter. Result? Losses to DET, N.Y.
League Pass is free until Sunday if y'all wanna turn Klay on.
The Magic have now lost 152 games over the last 2.5 yrs. That was about as frustrated as I've seen JVaughn after a loss.
Vic Oladipo: "We can't worry about offense. We're worrying about the wrong thing right now. We've got to worry about defense."
Elfrid Payton: “I’m good — a little sore. The doctor came in and checked me out. No severe pain. No real pain. He said I’m really good.
Spoke with EPayton after the game. A doctor examined him after the game. He's been diagnosed w/a sore left knee.
After a 20-point first quarter, the NBA-worst Knicks have eclipsed the 30-point mark in each of the final three periods
Can't let the Langston Galloways and Lance Thomases of the league beat you.
Wow. Knicks fans didn't give Earl "The Pearl" Monroe a standing ovation when he was introduced just now.
Jacque Vaughn insists that Aaron Gordon's recent 12-minute games were not part of a medically mandated minutes restriction.
Why does the Knicks' PA announcer announce the score after every basket? Not who scored, but the score of the game?
Same Magic starters tonight: Payton, Oladipo, Marble, Frye and Vucevic.
Dewayne Dedmon and Moe Harkless will be inactive tonight. No injury issues for either player.
