News: Mahinmi scored eight points (4-4 FG, 0-2 FT), grabbed nine rebounds, and notched three blocks in 21 minutes Thursday against the Magic.
Impact: Mahinmi has started at center in two of the Pacers' first three preseason games, making him the likely leader in the competition with Jordan Hill to replace the departed Roy Hibbert. Hill possesses the greater fantasy appeal of the two players due to his superior offensive abilities, but coach Frank Vogel seems to have a greater affinity for Mahinmi, who is entering his fourth season with Indiana and is the better rim protector of the two.
