Recap: Indiana vs. Orlando

Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Danny Granger scored a team-high 16 points to help the Indiana Pacers to a wire-to-wire 98-79 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday.

Paul George and Lance Stephenson both scored 15 points, with the Stephenson adding 12 rebounds and five assists in Indiana's fourth consecutive win over Orlando.

"We definitely have a gear to push that lead when we want to," said Granger. "It's just a matter of fact of not relying on that when we get into these games. We have to execute offensively, our defense is always going to be there, it's just our offense that sometimes comes and goes."

Arron Afflalo scored 18 of his 20 points in the first half to pace the Magic, who have lost 12 straight road games. Nikola Vucevic had 16 points and 13 rebounds in the setback.

George was fouled shooting a 3 with 0.6 seconds remaining in the first quarter and made all three free throws to give Indiana a 29-22 lead.

Granger hit a pair of free throws and followed with a 3-pointer with 9 1/2 minutes left in the second to push Indiana's lead to 39-28.

The edge stretched to as many as 16 a few times in the quarter, but Orlando outscored Indiana 9-2 over the final 3:33 to trail 59-50 at the break. Afflalo buried a transition 3 with 0.1 seconds left to close the first half.

Orlando opened the third quarter on an 8-1 run to cut the deficit to 60-58.

Stephenson followed with a three-point play before George hit a trey for an eight-point cushion.

Indiana bridged the third and fourth quarters with an 18-1 run with C.J. Watson capping the spurt with a jumper at 7:45 of the final frame.

Vucevic's putback layup midway through the fourth ended a field goal drought of 10:37 for Orlando and the Magic trailed 88-68. The Indiana lead swelled to as many as 24 after that.

"Danny Granger and Lance Stephenson were guys that made it hard out there for us," said Orlando's Glen Davis. "Those guys made a big difference tonight."
