The Indiana Pacers are headed to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in seven years. But it didn't come without some suspense.

The Orlando Magic came from 15 points down to take a three-point lead in the second half before the Pacers responded to pull off the 105-87 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday.

The Pacers won the series 4-1.

Danny Granger led the Pacers with 25 points, but Darren Collison's strong play off the bench led to the victory. Collison scored 19 points on 9-of-10 shooting.

"It was a huge step for our franchise," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "We took a big step last year in getting back to the playoffs and ... we came back with the mindset that we want to advance further than last year."

The Pacers looked like they were on their way back to Orlando for Game 6 after they became complacent from getting up by double digits in the first half.

The Magic, led by Jameer Nelson's 27 points, took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter when the starting point guard made a 3-pointer in the final seconds of the third quarter.

The Pacers, with their sold-out crowd, stayed composed and took the lead for good when Collison found Leandro Barbosa on a two-on-one break to give them a 75-73 lead.

Collison had 15 points on 7-of-7 shooting in the fourth quarter as the Pacers shot 15-of-20 from the field in the period.

"Darren was fantastic," Granger said. "He kept us fired up and kept us going."

The Pacers, who blew a 19-point, fourth-quarter lead in Game 4, opened the game like they were trying to end things early. The Pacers went on a 17-4 run midway through the first quarter to go up by 15 with about two minutes left in the quarter.

But that's when the Magic -- like they have done all series -- didn't back down from the challenge.

The scrappy Magic kept chipping away in the second quarter until they got to within one, 48-47, on a Glen Davis jumper from straight away to cap off a 19-3 run.

Pacers center Roy Hibbert stopped Orlando's run when he made a right-handed hook along the baseline with about 10 seconds left in the first half. The Pacers went into the half clinging to a 48-47 lead.

"At this point you can't run out of gas," Nelson said. "I thought we tired. It was Stan's decision to leave us out there, and I can't say it was a bad decision."

Granger led the Pacers with 10 points at the half. Davis and Nelson had 11 and 10 points, respectively, for Orlando in the first half.

The Pacers will face the winner of the Miami-New York Knicks series. The Heat lead the series 3-1 and can wrap it up with a victory on Wednesday.

"They will be underdogs in the next (round)," Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. "I have no clue how far they will go, and I won't be watching."

Notes: The Pacers finally found their 3-point shooting stroke. They went 9-of-17 on 3-pointers after entering the game shooting 27 percent in the series. ... New Orleans guard and Indianapolis native Eric Gordon, Indiana University coach Tom Crean and Indianapolis Colts defensive end Robert Mathis all attended the game. ... The Pacers went 5-4 against the Magic this season. Of course, four of those wins came during the playoffs.
