The Orlando Magic host the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night.

The Indiana Pacers enter this game at 15-30 with an ugly 7-19 mark away from home.  The Pacers have lost seven straight coming into this game, most recently falling by two points in Miami after mounting a big rally in the second half.  The Pacers just can't get the job done on the offensive end, averaging 94.7 points per game to rank 27th in the league.  The defense is formidable while ranking 4th, but it's partially a product of the slow game pace the team finds itself in constantly.  One of the Pacers rare wins over the last two months did come against the Magic, as Indiana won 98-83 on November 28th behind 24 points from Rodney Stuckey.

USA TODAY Sports

The Orlando Magic are 15-31 on the year with an embarassing 5-14 record at home.  It's impressive the Orlando can win on the road as a young team, but failing to capitalize on home games is unacceptable in the NBA.  The Magic also enter on a losing streak, having dropped four straight road contests.  The Magic don't excel at either end of the floor with an offense that averages 95.7 points per game to rank 24th and a defense that allows 101.6 points to rank 22nd.  The Magic have allowed over 100 points in six straight games, which could even ignite a team like the Pacers to break out of a shooting slump.  Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo have been hot of late, with Vucevic coming off a 34 point, 18 rebound performance.
 
With the Magic dictating the pace with poor defense of late I see this one going over the total, despite it being a high number for a team like the Pacers.
