ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- After an outstanding performance in the All-Star Game, Jermaine O'Neal leads the Indiana Pacers on what he hopes will be the start of a playoff push Tuesday against the Orlando Magic.

Indiana's leading scorer and rebounder at the All-Star break, O'Neal posted 15 points and five rebounds off the bench for the Eastern Conference in a 125-115 victory over the Western Conference.

The Pacers, who are just percentage points behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the final playoff spot, won five of their final seven games entering All-Star weekend, including a 95-87 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wedneady.

Reggie Miller scored a season-high 36 points in the win and Jeff Foster added 14 and 17 rebounds for Indiana, which finished a four-game road trip with a 3-1 record. Despite being held to 10 points against Portland, O'Neal is averaging 22 points, eight rebounds and just under two blocks per game.

Orlando, which has won both meetings with Indiana this season, won two straight before the All-Star Game.

On Tuesday, All-Star starter Grant Hill scored a season-high 39 points to lead the Magic to a 99-94 triumph over the Los Angeles Clippers. Steve Francis added 16 points and seven assists in the victory.
