GAME RECAP

Vernon Maxwell scored 18 points in his second game with Orlando, including a go-ahead jumper with 3:19 to play, as the Magic held on for an 83-81 victory over the Toronto Raptors, who lost their sixth straight game.

Toronto opened the biggest lead of the fourth quarter at 71-67 on Doug Christie's two free throws with 7:37 to go, and took its last lead with 3:45 left when Shawn Respert nailed a jumper to make it 79-78.

Maxwell answered 26 seconds later to give Orlando the lead for good before Toronto's Oliver Miller was fouled and missed both free throws. Horace Grant then converted a jumper with 2:39 remaining to bump the lead to 82-79.

Miller again missed two foul shots 13 seconds later, but John Wallace came up with the rebound on the second miss and layed it in to make it a one-point game.

After stopping Orlando, the 6-9 Miller had his shot blocked by 6-1 Darrell Armstrong with 70 seconds left. The Magic did not score on its next possession, but Rony Seikaly knocked away an entry pass by Respert with 25 seconds to go and Armstrong was fouled with 19.1 seconds remaining.

He split the free throws before Damon Stoudamire missed a jumper from the elbow with four seconds to play and Wallace, who came away with the long rebound, was off on a jumper just inside the three-point line.

"It was a very makable shot," said Wallace. "I wish I had that shot back. I had a good look at the rim."

Grant totaled 16 points and 10 rebounds for Orlando, which had lost four straight games and nine of 10. The Magic have won both meetings this season with Toronto and lead the all-time series, 8-1.

"I had great looks in the first half and I was just so tired, I just couldn't do anything," said Maxwell, who signed on Monday after not playing organized ball for nine months. "I think a lot of it had to do with the fact my adrenaline was going and it took a lot of wind from me. In the second half I just calmed down and relaxed and played my game. It was like I hadn't been out there before. I was just happy to be out there again. Thank God I'm back in the league playing again."

"He's (Maxwell) not in real good shape, but I guess he's helpful the way he is," said Orlando coach Chuck Daly. "It just shows you what kind of player he was and what his abilities really are to just come out of the darkness like that. Like the phantom of the opera. He just comes out of the back stage there and makes shots."

Stoudamire finished with 26 points and seven assists, while Wallace had 14 points and eight boards for the Raptors, who have dropped eight of nine overall and four in a row at home.

"We had some miscues late in the game," said Stoudamire. "That's what's been happening to us all year. I was hoping to hit that last bucket and push it into overtime."

Armstrong and Grant combined for 10 points as Orlando jumped out to a 14-2 lead 3:50 into the contest. The lead was 27-15 before Toronto scored the final four points of the first quarter and continued to tie the score at 29-29 on Zan Tabak's layup with under nine minutes to go.

Grant had 11 points to stake the Magic to a 45-42 halftime lead. Derek Harper scored all 15 of his points through three quarters, when Orlando led 65-63.

Charles Outlaw recorded 14 points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots for Orlando, which also snapped a three-game road skid. The Magic shot just 43 percent (33-of-77) from the field, including 4-for-14 from three-point range.

Christie totaled 12 points, a season-high 12 rebounds and six assists for Toronto, which outrebounded Orlando, 45-42, but committed 19 turnovers.

"We had our chances to win the basketball game," said Toronto coach Darrell Walker. "We've got to get over the hump. Nineteen turnovers, that's what killed us."
