Stephen Jackson didn't let his outside issues distract him.
Jackson scored a season-high 26 to lead the Pacers to a 94-80 victory over the Magic on Wednesday.
He began the day at a court hearing in which a judge set a Feb. 12 trial date on charges that Jackson fired a gun during a fight outside a strip club. He has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of criminal recklessness and misdemeanor counts of battery and disorderly conduct. The criminal recklessness charge carries a prison term of six months to three years.
"I wish I wasn't in court, but I have to deal with what's going on," Jackson said. "It definitely brings everything to your face and makes you more humble about stuff - I appreciate the game of basketball every time I step out there."
Al Harrington scored 26, Jermaine O'Neal added 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, who returned home after losing their final three games of a six-game road trip.
Dwight Howard had 20 points, eight rebounds and three blocks, and Grant Hill scored 16 for Eastern Conference-leading Orlando, which suffered its second loss at Indiana this season.
"We can't blame it on the trip," said Magic coach Brian Hill, whose team finished 4-2 on its six-game road swing. "The Pacers had a lot of energy tonight."
In the first quarter, it was Hill's 14 points on 7-for-7 shooting that helped the Magic stay close. Orlando tied the score at 25 late in the period on a Hill layup, but Danny Granger's 3-pointer put the Pacers back in front.

But San Antonio took an 11-point second-quarter lead and the Bobcats faded in the second half after Brevin Knight was ejected after two technical fouls.
