INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — C.J. Miles made four 3-pointers and scored 16 points, and the Pacers spoiled Frank Vogel’s return to Indiana with an 88-69 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
Vogel coached the Pacers for more than five seasons before he was let go in May. He was quickly scooped up by Orlando, and it looks as if he has plenty of work to do with the Magic.
The crowd cheered when Vogel was introduced before the game. He led the Pacers to back-to-back Eastern Conference finals appearances and compiled a 250-181 record during his tenure in Indiana.
Paul George had 13 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Pacers, who pulled away in the second half. Monta Ellis also scored 13 points, and Jeff Teague finished with 11.
Orlando shot 32 percent from the field. Evan Fournier led the Magic with 14 points on 4-of-15 shooting, and Aaron Gordon had 11.
Indiana led by as many as 21 points during the fourth quarter.
Magic: Orlando has lost 12 of its last 14 meetings with the Pacers, dating to the 2012-13 season.
Pacers: After scoring in double digits in each of the last four games, Al Jefferson was shut out.
Magic: Host New Orleans on Wednesday.
Pacers: Host Cleveland on Wednesday.
