There wasn't much Sunday as the Pacers had multiple defensive lapses in both halves which helped the Magic to hang around and eventually steal the game late.
George led the Pacers with 27 points. Lance Stephenson added 16. The loss ends Indiana's win streak at four games.
Vogel said his team's inability to stave off a third quarter push by the Magic was the difference.
"They picked up their energy," he said. "We've got to handle it. There was a stretch there in the third where we could have put them away. We were a little careless with some possessions ... and it was costly."
The Pacers carried over some of their momentum from the first half and built as much as a 17-point lead in the third quarter. That advantage was cut to 10 entering the fourth.
Orlando recovered some of its early-game energy, and started the final quarter on a 14-3 run to take its first lead of the second half — 78-77 — with less than 8 minutes to play.
It would grow as high as 88-81 before the Magic cooled off — missing four straight shots — to allowed the Pacers to cut it to 88-86 on a 3-pointer by George.
But the Magic found their shot and got their lead back up to six with just over a minute to play.
Another 3-pointer by George on the other end trimmed it back to 92-90 with 37.7 seconds remaining. That was followed by an offensive foul on Oladipo which turned the ball back over to Indiana.
George got free at the top of the key for another attempt from 3, but his shot bounced off the back of the rim and was grabbed by Oladipo, who was fouled.
He connected on 1 of 2 free throw attempts, leading to a scramble for the rebound that ended up in a jump ball between David West and Glen Davis.
