(04-17 15:19)

Rasual Butler and Chris Copeland each scored 19 points as Indiana rested key players and still cruised past Orlando 101-86.
The Eastern Conference's top seed ended the season winning three of four to shake off a nasty late-season slump. The Pacers will open the playoffs against eighth-seed Atlanta.
Indiana held out Paul George, Lance Stephenson and David West against the Magic. Also getting the night off was reserve Ian Mahinmi.
Maurice Harkless led the Magic with 14 points, and E'Twaun Moore added 13.
Orlando ended the season losing 16 of their last 20, with the fifth-worst record in franchise history. --AP
