NBA Orlando in Indianapolis Super Bowl Weekend

Oops! While creating the schedule is December, the NBA League scheduled the Orlando Magic to play the Indianapolis Pacers on Saturday February 4, 2012 at 7:00 in Indiana. I guess they forgot that the Super Bowl will be in the same city the very next day. Since this year’s Super Bowl was planned way before the NBA schedule was made it was impossible for the Magic team to find a hotel. I am sure the Orlando Magic was not surprised to hear the hotels were all booked. The  Magic is forced to fly to Cincinnati after their game Friday night and stay in a hotel there. They will then wake up and have their morning walk-through and practice there. Then later Saturday the team will fly to Indianapolis for the game that starts at 7:00. This might turn out to be a much harder game for the Orlando Magic then they first expected.
