GAME RECAP

Nick Anderson scored 20 of his 28 points in the third quarter and Bo Outlaw grabbed 11 rebounds, leading the injury-depleted Orlando Magic to their eighth straight home win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, 115-102.

Anderson, who has scored 28 points in three of his last four games, had 10 points over the last 2:59 of the third quarter, helping the Magic open an 89-71 lead en route to their season high in points.

Anderson's output helped Orlando overcome a backcourt thinned by injuries. Already missing All-Star Penny Hardaway and Darrell Armstrong with injuries, the Magic also lost Mark Price and Derek Harper during the game, finishing with seven players. Gerald Wilkins finished the game as Orlando's point guard.

Price suffered a torn ligament in his left thumb in the second quarter and is expected to miss four to six weeks. Harper was removed from the court by stretcher in the third quarter after injuring his neck while being fouled by Tom Hammonds. He was taken to a hospital for precautionary measures but did have movement in his extremities. X-rays on his neck were negative and he is listed as day-to-day.

"This was probably our best effort all year," Anderson said. "But I said it once and I said it twice, is there a curse around here? Two point guards go down but coach kept pushing us and everybody responded."

The Magic were additionally shorthanded because Greg Foster and Chris Morris, acquired from the Utah Jazz for Rony Seikaly on Monday, could not play because Seikaly did not report to the Jazz.

"I was in shock, truthfully," Outlaw said of the Magic's newest injuries. "It was like, 'I don't believe this is happening.' I don't know if people are coming after us because we're shorthanded. I mean, we go to the bucket and get hammered. All we can do is try and be professional and play through it."

Horace Grant scored a season-high 26 points and Derek Strong added 14 and 10 rebounds for Orlando, which has won five of its last seven games. One week ago in Minnesota, the Magic defeated the Timberwolves 96-89 behind Anderson's 28 points.

"Well, obviously this was a very impressive win for us," Orlando coach Chuck Daly said. "I don't know if Nick Anderson had ever played this good. Horace also had a big night and we played as hard as you can defensively. We did a great job and tried to take advantage of some mismatches. I think this team has found out what it takes and what we have to do to win."

Kevin Garnett and Sam Mitchell scored 19 points apiece to lead Minnesota, which has not won at Orlando Arena since January 9th, 1991. Terry Porter added 18 points off the bench and Garnett and Hammonds grabbed eight rebounds each. The Timberwolves missed 11-of-28 free throws and 10-of-15 three-pointers.

"Defensively we really lost all concepts," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "Part of it is we were taking some bad shots, so defensively, we were getting broken down. We gave up too many points. Orlando shot well and played with emotion, but we helped them in that area. We gave them 12 layups in the first half."

After the Timberwolves closed to 77-69 on a fast-break basket by Hammonds with 3:27 left in the third quarter, the Magic answered with a 12-2 spurt, fueled by 10 points from Anderson.

"Nick got fired up in the third quarter and took his game to another level," Hammonds said. "We couldn't match that intensity and they took over."

The Magic opened their largest lead at 95-72 when Strong made a free throw with 8:02 remaining. The closest Minnesota got down the stretch was 111-100 with just 1:32 left.

Trailing 28-19 in the first quarter, Orlando used a 10-0 spurt to regain the lead. Grant's three-point play with 42 seconds left in the quarter capped the run to give Orlando a 29-28 advantage.

Minnesota grabbed its last lead, 32-31, at the 10:34 mark of the second quarter when Garnett hit a jumper. The Magic regained the lead for good nine seconds later when Price connected on a jumper.
