GAME RECAP

Rony Seikaly scored 18 of his 26 points over the last eight minutes and Bo Outlaw pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds as the shorthanded Orlando Magic defeated the Chicago Bulls for the first time in eight games, 106-98.

Seikaly also had 10 rebounds and sank 16-of-17 free throws. Horace Grant and Mark Price chipped in with 17 points apiece as the Magic outscored the Bulls 35-23 in the fourth quarter and won for the fifth time in six games. Orlando had not beaten Chicago since November 14th, 1995.

"I haven't seen him (Seikaly) that dominant in a game before," said teammate Gerald Wilkins. "I think a lot had to do with coach getting him in the huddle and telling him to step it up and play tougher. That lit a fire under him and he came out and played as tough as I've ever seen him before. They couldn't stop him. He made plays and made the shots."

Michael Jordan led Chicago with 25 points, making all 13 of his free throws but just 6-of-17 shots from the field. Toni Kukoc added 24 points, Ron Harper 20 and Dennis Rodman 16 rebounds for the Bulls, who had their season-high five-game winning streak snapped.

The Magic played without starters Penny Hardaway and Nick Anderson. Earlier in the day, Hardaway had surgery on his left knee to remove torn cartilage and will miss eight to 10 weeks and Anderson was placed on the injured list with a broken left hand and will be sidelined four to six weeks. Orlando has won eight of nine games without Hardaway in the lineup this season.

"I wasn't surprised with the intensity that Orlando showed tonight without Penny. I told my team that they would play this hard," said Chicago coach Phil Jackson. "They're a tough defensive team and their second unit did a good job tonight."

Chicago entered the fourth quarter with a 75-71 edge behind 20 points by Kukoc. Darrell Armstrong pulled Orlando into a 79-79 tie with 8:45 remaining with a driving layup.

With 6:57 left, Armstrong started a 7-0 run with a jumper. Seikaly finished the spurt with a one-handed scoop on a drive along the baseline, giving the Magic a 90-83 lead with 5:15 remaining.

The Bulls fought back within two points twice, the last time t 92-90 with 2:34 to go on a layup by Jordan.

Seikaly scored six of Orlando's next eight points, with four free throws and a drive, to make it 100-93 with 48.4 seconds left. Over the final 7:32, Seikaly connected on 12 consecutive free throws.

"I wish it was as easy as it looked. I had to work hard," said Seikaly. "They played great defense and those guys are so quick, always bothering you. But I knew that I had to get going for us to have a chance. Things started going my way and I had to take advantage of it."

"We couldn't put them away. If we had taken care of the basketball or taken better shots, we could've put them away," said Jordan. "They kept fighting back. (Coach Chuck) Daly's teams always do that."
