Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Penny Hardaway's driving layup with 53 seconds to play capped an 11-2 run and the Orlando Magic held the Milwaukee Bucks to just two points over the final five minutes en route to an 85-82 victory.

Milwaukee suffered its first defeat of the season in four games under new coach George Karl. The Bucks started 3-0 for the first time since 1996.

The Bucks held an nine-point advantage in the early moments of the fourth quarter and still led 80-72 with 4:57 to play after Glenn Robinson hit a short jumper.

Horace Grant hit consecutive jumpers, Nick Anderson connected on five straight free throws and, after a jumper by Milwaukee's Terrell Brandon, Hardaway was fouled as he converted a layup from the left side. Hardaway missed the free throw, leaving the Magic with an 83-82 advantage.

"I was just waiting my turn when I got open shots," Grant said. "I wasn't going to force anything. I hit a couple of key jumpers."

Milwaukee had a chance to regain the lead on its next possession, but Brandon missed a short jumper from the right side with 35 seconds left. Rookie Matt Harpring missed two free throws with 13 seconds remaining, but on the Bucks' next trip downcourt, Ray Allen's attempted pass underneath for Robinson was knocked away by Grant.

"Penny was playing good defense on Allen, but Allen sort of got around him and I sort of was in the right place at the right time," Grant said.

Darrell Amstrong hit two from the line with 6.8 seconds to play and the Magic hung on for the victory when Hardaway partially blocked Brandon's 3-point attempt as the buzzer sounded.

Hardaway scored 18 points and Harpring added 15 for the Magic, who have won four straight since their lone loss at Philadelphia on February 6.

"I didn't really get down about the missed free throws," said Harpring. "I said give it to me again. This is all a learning experience. My job is to go out and give 100 percent and give a good attitude."

"Matt did a good job throughout the game," Grant said. "Matt is coming off the bench and doing a great job. He is very aggressive."

Brandon led the Bucks with a season-high 20 points and Robinson added 15.

"We played a very good basketball game. We just did not close the door on them," Karl said. "It happens, it happens a lot in this league. Their pressure bothered us and got into us and disrupted our rhythm and our momentum."

Dell Curry closed the third quarter with a 3-pointer and began the fourth period with another to give the Bucks a 68-59 lead. The Magic immediately fought back, as rookie Michael Doleac scored three points, and after a dunk by Ervin Johnson, Harpring nailed consecutive 3-pointers to bring Orlando within 70-68 with 9:04 remaining.

Harpring's 3-pointers were the only ones for the Magic, who finished 2-of-17 from beyond the arc while shooting 40.5 percent (32-of-79) overall. Hardaway and Bo Outlaw each pulled down 10 rebounds as the Magic built a 45-40 advantage on the boards. Hardaway also dished out six assists.

After Harpring's second 3-pointer, the Bucks appeared to take control with an 8-2 spurt. Armen Gilliam started the run with a jumper and Johnson hit two from the line. Outlaw drove for a layup, but Michael Curry hit a 19-footer and Robinson made a short jumper to push the lead back to 78-70.

Hardaway converted two foul shots with 6:01 remaining before Robinson's short jumper gave the Bucks an eight-point advantage. But Milwaukee would get just one basket down the stretch -- Brandon's jumper with 2:27 remaining -- as Orlando stormed back.

"It's one of those games that you're kind of fortunate to win in a lot of ways although our effort down the last six or eight minutes we really turned it on defensively," Magic coach Chuck Daly said. "We finally got into a couple of sets that helped solve some of the problems and started pushing the ball up quicker so the defense wasn't set."

Dell Curry netted 11 points off the bench and Tyrone Hill grabbed nine rebounds for Milwaukee, which shot 46 percent (35-of-76), including 5-of-12 from 3-point range. However, the Bucks committed 18 turnovers leading to 23 Magic points.

"It was a tough game, and I think it was very competitive, and the fans definitely got their money's worth today on both sides," Brandon said. "Even though we lost we really enjoyed playing them. They outplayed us at the end, but we all learn from it and have fun and continue to enjoy the game."

The Bucks took advantage of 15 Orlando miscues to net 18 points.

Anderson scored 13 points and Grant 10 and six rebounds for the Magic, who went 19-of-27 from the line. Milwaukee went to the line just 10 times, making seven.
