Magic stomped in Vogel's homecoming

INDIANAPOLIS — C.J. Miles made four 3-pointers and scored 16, and the Pacers spoiled Frank Vogel's return to Indiana with an 88-69 victory over the 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.

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, 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.

The Magic was playing on the second night of a back-to-back and appeared to have tired legs. Just one night earlier, Orlando posted its best scoring night of the season, winning an emotional road game over the Thunder, 119-117.

Serge Ibaka, who scored 31 against Oklahoma City, shot just 3-of-13 from the field against Indiana for six points to go with 13 rebounds.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Anthony Davis had 25 points, 16 rebounds, four steals and two blocks, and the host Pelicans won for only the second time in their first 11 games, 106-105 over the Celtics. … Tobias Harris scored 22, Aron Baynes added 20 points and eight rebounds and the shorthanded Pistons beat the Thunder 104-88 to improve to 5-0 at home. Detroit won without Reggie Jackson, who hasn't played this season due to knee tendinitis, and Andre Drummond, sidelined with a sprained ankle. … Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis scored 24 each, and the host Knicks rolled after a halftime lineup change and beat the Mavericks 93-77. New York benched former Gator Joakim Noah, starting guard Justin Holiday and moving Porzingis to center in a small lineup. They responded by scoring 31 in the third quarter. … James Harden scored 23 of his 33 in the first quarter, and the host Rockets cruised to a 115-88 win over the 76ers.
