ORLANDO, Fla. - Close games have usually turned into losses for the Indiana Pacers over the past few weeks.This time, they put an end to their second-longest losing streak of the season.David West had 20 points, reserve Damjan Rudez added a career-high 18, and the Pacers snapped a seven-game skid with a 106-99 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night.Its been a tough year for all of us, and this isnt any more than one game. But it certainly feels good, and its certainly good to see those guys out there having fun, Indiana coach Frank Vogel said.The Pacers trailed by seven entering the fourth quarter, but got 16 points from Rudez in the final 12 minutes. They outscored the Magic 31-17 in the quarter.George Hill had 17 points and six rebounds for Indiana in just his second game back from a left groin strain.Being down in the fourth quarter, its easy to lower down your spirit and think were going to lose the game, Rudez said. But we just hung in there, kept talking on the defensive end, we stayed aggressive. Shots started to drop and we got confidence. Once we took the first lead, we were like, We shouldnt let this one slip away.Nik Vucevic led four Magic players in double figures with 27 points. Victor Oladipo scored 18.It was the ninth straight Orlando opponent to score at least 100 points. The Magic fell to 5-20 this season when their opponent reaches triple digits.Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said it was an example of his team not finishing the game.This is one tonight — hopefully (the team) gets that sense — that youve played well for the majority of the game. You put yourself in position to win ... the focus needs to be there for 48 minutes, Vaughn said.The Pacers took a 95-91 lead on a basket by Ian Mahinmi with less than five minutes to play. But Vucevic made two foul shots to tie it at 97 with 2:23 remaining.Hill then scored the next four points on a layup and a dunk off a steal. Orlando was trailing 102-99 when Indiana ran down the shot clock and got Rudez free for a 3 from the corner with less 30 seconds remaining.___NOT SO MUCHVaughn said before the game that he hoped the insertion of rookie Aaron Gordon into the starting lineup for the first time this season would inspire his team to rededicate itself on defence.A faster start offensively was on Vogels wish list.Neither got what he wanted early on.Indiana started sluggish, before settling in offensively on their way to a 51-49 halftime lead.Orlando couldnt keep the Pacers out of the paint, allowing Indiana to shoot 54 per cent (23 of 42) for the half, and 51 per cent for the game.TIP-INSPacers: Indiana had eight steals and five blocks. ...C.J. Miles sat out with a sore left groin. He is day to day.Magic: Orlando had 22 assists on its 38 field goals. ... The Magic had zero offensive rebounds in the first half and three for the game.UP NEXTPacers: Host Toronto on Tuesday in the opener of a five-game homestand.Magic: At Memphis on Monday.___Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at Tavon Austin Jersey . -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed Jerome Simpson, the former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver recently convicted on a felony drug charge. Orlando Pace Jersey . Azarenka needed exactly one hour in a 6-1, 6-0 rout of Austrian Yvonne Meusburger to start the night session at Laver Arena. Sharapova had a much easier time earlier in the day with cooler conditions and took full advantage in 6-1, 7-6 (8-6) win over Frenchwoman Alize Cornet, while Radwanska had to rally for a 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. ... ersey.aspx.

Lawrie, who returned in time for Tuesday nights important series opener against the Orioles after missing six weeks and 36 games with a fractured right index finger, was lifted from the game after three innings with lower back tightness. The move, the Blue Jays announced in-game, was precautionary. "We dont think its serious," said manager John Gibbons. "He said it felt it tightened up on him a little bit during (batting practice) and then in the game he felt it. Day-to-day." "It was kind of just grabbing at me as I was warming up and going about my day. Something was just grabbing at me a little bit," said Lawrie. "The more I kind of went about my business and what I was trying to do it was like, theres something in there thats bothering me and I better take care of this before it gets serious." Lawrie, who singled on a groundball down the first base line in his only at-bat, will have an MRI on Wednesday. He has a history of core body injuries, specifically his oblique, but he hasnt suffered back injuries. "Thats basically it because it could be a number of different things," said Lawrie. "We basically figured that well go in there and well really see what it is instead of playing the guessing game. You can have a number of people telling you whats going on and whats wrong but until you really get to the bottom of things and you really check things out, thats when youll know." In the meantime, working off the assumption Lawrie wont require another trip to the disabled list, Gibbons would be left with a three-man bench for as long as Lawrie is unavailable. Lawrie was activated from his finger-related stint on the disabled list prior to Tuesdays game and the corresponding roster move was made easy when Steve Tolleson was placed on the paternity list. Tolleson and his wife welcomed a daughter on Tuesday. The paternity list allows for Tolleson to be goone for three days, which means the club will have to adjust the roster again by no later than Friday.dddddddddddd Again, working off the assumption Lawrie will not need another trip to the disabled list, there are three prime candidates to be sent to Buffalo when Tolleson is activated. They are Ryan Goins, Munenori Kawasaki and Chad Jenkins. Eliminate Jenkins because the Jays wont whittle down to a six-man bullpen. That leaves the two left-handed hitting infielders from which to choose. It says here the player who should be optioned is Kawasaki. Goins is the better defender and, frankly, has made better contact more consistently since his recall from Triple-A Buffalo on July 22. The Jays will eventually have further decisions to make when Adam Lind, who could begin a minor league rehabilitation assignment in a matter of days and Edwin Encarnacion, whos still a while from being ready, make their returns. Remember that rosters expand on September 1, meaning any player on a teams 40-man roster is eligible to join the big league club for the remainder of the regular season. Whoever is sent down will be recalled no later than that date. Deadline Silence A brief message from manager John Gibbons last Thursday in Houston is the extent to which Blue Jays players have heard anything from anyone in the organization about the inactivity at the trade deadline. "I talked to our guys in our advance, just something brief but I said Hey, weve got a good ballclub. Lets run with it," said manager John Gibbons. "Remember, when new guys come in, it means someone in this room goes. Everyone wants to be part of it." General manager Alex Anthopoulos, whos cut his travel with the big league club considerably this season, surprised some players with his decision not to fly to Houston and address the team. As of Tuesday afternoon, the first time the team had gathered in the home clubhouse in 12 days, nothing had been said to the group by Anthopoulos or anyone higher in the Blue Jays front office.
