Pacers 101, Magic 86:
Rasual Butler led six players in double figures with a season-high 19 points as Indiana rested several regulars in an easy win at Orlando to end the regular season.

Starters Paul George, Lance Stephenson and David West sat for the Pacers, who had already secured the top seed in the Eastern Conference and will open the playoffs at home against Atlanta this weekend. Chris Copeland also scored 19 points, Evan Turner had 14 and Lavoy Allen chipped in 12 points and a team-high 11 rebounds for Indiana.

Maurice Harkless led the Magic with 14 points while E'Twaun Moore added 13 in a reserve role. Dewayne Dedmon grabbed a career-high 13 boards for Orlando, which dropped its final four games to finish 23-59.

Indiana closed the first quarter on a 17-5 run and Butler's dunk at the buzzer to end the first half gave his team a 46-40 advantage. Turner's three-point play early in the third ignited a 16-4 outburst en route to a 75-62 lead entering the fourth.

Copeland opened the final period with one of his five 3-pointers and the margin remained at least 12 the rest of the way. The Pacers were 11-of-23 from beyond the arc and had a 52-40 advantage on the glass in recording consecutive wins for the first time since a four-game run in mid-March.
