ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Nikola Vucevic had 16 points and 15 rebounds to help the Orlando Magic snap a six-game home losing streak with a 97-86 victory over Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.

Orlando has won two of its last three, having also slipped past the red hot Los Angeles Clippers last week. It was the Magic's first home victory since Dec. 19.

The Magic led by as many as 22 points, blowing the game open with a big second -quarter run that included a barrage of 3-pointers. The Magic connected on 12 of their 21 attempts from beyond the arc for the game.

Paul George had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead Indiana. George Hill added 15 points.

The Pacers have lost two of their last three.
