Indiana wrapped up the 2013-14 regular season in the land of Disney down in Orlando Wednesday night. The Pacers won all four quarters, led by six at halftime and by as many as 19 in the second half as they trounced the Magic (23-59), 101-86, at the Amway Center.
With their number one seed and first-round matchup already locked in, Pacers coach Frank Vogel utilized a variety of lineups that allowed a number of players to shine. Six Pacers finished in double-figures for the second game in a row, both wins.
The Pacers finished the year with a 56-26 record, which ties the 1999-2000 Finals team for the third-best winning percentage in NBA franchise history — and the most in 10 years (61 in 2003-04). Wednesday’s win also ensured them of a plus-.500 road record, 21-20, for just the fourth time in franchise history.
