• Pacers cruise past Magic for 115-86 win

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)  (AP)ul George had 25 points and Tyler Hansbrough added 18 and the Indiana Pacers used a big first half to roll past the Orlando Magic 115-86 on Friday.

    Indiana scored 30 points off 21 Orlando turnovers and also connected on 11 3-pointers in the victory.

    The offensive eruption came after a late-game offensive meltdown against Boston on Wednesday night that ended in a last-second loss.

    The Pacers ended a three-game regular-season losing streak to the Magic. It was also their second straight game without forward Danny Granger, who is expected to miss a week resting a sore left knee.

    Arron Afflalo led Orlando with 19 points.

    The Magic have lost five of their past six and haven't posted a home win since Feb. 10.
