THE Pacers ended a two game skid, downing the Orlando Magic, 88-69, on Monday in Indiana (Tuesday, Manila time).

CJ Miles came off the bench to score 16 in 23 minutes of action as the Pacers scored their fifth win in 11 outings.

Monta Ellis added 13 points, making 6 of 11 field goal attemps, while Paul George also had 13 markers on a dismal 5 of 16 shooting.

Jeff Teague added 11 for the Pacers, who earlier suffered losses to the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics.

Serge Ibaka had a miserable night, scoring only six on 3 of 13 shooting one night after coming up with a career-high 31 in Orlando’s victory over Oklahoma City.

Evan Fournier led the Magic with 14 points and Elfrid Payton added 12.

It was the second straight road game for the Magic, who return home to host the Pelicans on Thursday.
