ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Victor Oladipo had 23 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter, and the Orlando Magic rallied to surprise the Indiana Pacers 93-92 on Sunday night

Indiana stole Orlando’s inbounds pass with nine seconds left and Paul George was able to get off a 20-foot jumper. But it was deflected and rebounded by the Magic, who ran out the clock.

Orlando has now beaten the top teams in both conferences in back-to-back games, having stunned Oklahoma City on Friday. The victory ties the Magic’s season-high win streak of three games. It also extends their home win streak to five consecutive games.

Nik Vucevic added 19 points and 13 rebounds.

George led the Pacers with 27 points. Lance Stephenson added 16. The loss ends Indiana’s win streak at four games.
