GAME RECAP

Rony Seikaly and Derek Strong keyed a late burst and Darrell Armstrong shut down Rod Strickland in the fourth quarter as the Orlando Magic welcomed back Penny Hardaway with their sixth straight win, 95-87 over the Washington Wizards.

Seikaly scored the first five points and Strong the last four in a 9-2 run that snapped an 80-80 tie with four minutes to go. Armstrong had nine points and eight assists, including seven and five in the final period, when he held Strickland scoreless.

"I did?" Armstrong said. "I know he cut me backdoor a couple times. He's a tough guy. He's a great guard."

"He has a lot of energy," Hardaway said of his teammate. "He's a guy that you need out there on the floor. He makes things happen. One of the things he can do is defend and really did a great job on Rod Strickland."

Seikaly had 24 points and 13 rebounds and Hardaway scored 15 points for the Magic, who had not lost since Hardaway last played. The All-Star guard was sidelined with tendinitis in his left knee but Orlando won all five games he missed.

"At the beginning of the season, everything was put on me and Rony's shoulders to go out there and score points," Hardaway said. "Everyone else was just standing still. Once I got injured, everybody just came to life and really found themselves and really started playing hard. Right now, with me in there, it makes us more of a threat, with everybody having the attitude that they can score."

"In the NBA, there's so much talent," Armstrong said. "You've got to understand that if your key man goes down, you should still be able to compete in this league. That's what we did. We won games when he was gone."

Chris Webber had 29 points and 16 rebounds for the Wizards, who have lost six straight games, including two to the Magic during that span. Webber suffered a bruised knee in his last game and had missed the first three games of the skid with back spasms.

Slowed by a sprained ankle, Strickland had nine points and 14 assists, but was 0-of-3 from the field with three assists in the fourth quarter.

"He just had the guts to even be out there playing," Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "That's the kind of competitor he is. He wanted to play. With all the pressure on him offensively and defensively, he was running the show."

A basket by Calbert Cheaney, who scored 11 points, pulled the Wizards into an 80-80 tie with four minutes left. But Seikaly had a three-point play and another basket 27 seconds apart to give the Magic an 85-80 edge with 3:17 to go.

Webber answered with a basket, but Strong made two free throws and scored inside to boost Orlando's lead to 89-82 with 1:05 to play. Webber scored again and Washington stopped Orlando, but Armstrong stripped Strickland at midcourt and went in for the clinching dunk with 38 seconds left.

"We did not deliver in a couple situations when the game was on the line," Bickerstaff said. "Defensively, I thought we did not rotate under the basket. Strong got a couple of baskets and we got some fouls which were legitimate because we did not get between the man and the ball."

Strong scored 15 points, Mark Price 12 and Nick Anderson 11 for the Magic, who shot 46 percent (36-of-78) from the field and shot 12 more free throws than the Wizards, going 19-of-26 from the line.

"I want Penny to play, but I don't know that we have to depend on him and say that he has to go and get 28 points every night," Magic coach Chuck Daly said. "These other guys have learned that I have confidence in the fact that they can play."

Juwan Howard scored 20 points and Tracy Murray added 13 off the bench for Washington, which shot 39 percent (37-of-94) but made just seven free throws. The Wizards held a 47-46 rebounding edge.

Seikaly scored 11 points and Price nine in the first quarter as Orlando grabbed a 33-27 lead. Howard scored 11 and Webber eight to keep Washington close.

The Magic shot just 6-of-19 in the second period and six points by Cheaney allowed the Wizards to pull into a 49-49 halftime tie. Both teams went cold in the third quarter, combining for just 27 points, as Washington took a 63-62 lead to the final 12 minutes.
