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.
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.
