Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Allen Iverson is scoring points in bunches again, which is never a good sign for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Iverson scored 46 points but it was not enough to overcome the surprising Orlando Magic, who got a big game from Pat Garrity in a 110-105 victory.

Iverson reached 40 points for the ninth time in his career and the 76ers have lost eight of those games. He scored 36 points in the second half but the Sixers (1-4) gave away the lead as the Magic -- a team with no stars -- used a balanced attack.

"Every time I score 40, the same thing happens," Iverson said. "So I would rather keep it under 40. I was just playing basketball. My teammates knew I was hot and just kept giving me the ball. Every team does that when a guy gets hot."

Garrity, the last player off Orlando's bench, tied his career high with 25 points on 10-of-11 shooting, mostly from outside. He scored nine points in the fourth quarter, including a clutch 3-pointer that gave Orlando (4-2) a 99-93 lead with 3:25 to go.

Darrell Armstrong had his hands full with Iverson but collected 20 points and 10 assists. He scored eight points in the final period, including a pair of key baskets down the stretch.

"You know when a guy gets confident, he starts looking over at the bench, starts sticking his tongue out," Armstrong said. "That was Allen. He got real comfortable. He scored all those points but still lost the game."

"We didn't play defense. I didn't play defense," Iverson said.

The Magic took the lead for good at 90-89 with 6:02 left on a floater by Monty Williams, who scored 12 points off the bench. Armstrong hit two free throws and Williams made another jumper before Armstrong shook off Iverson for a 20-footer and a 96-91 lead with 4:03 remaining.

Iverson buried a jumper but Garrity answered with his 3-pointer. George Lynch, who scored 15 points, followed in Iverson's miss, but rookie Corey Maggette made a jumper and Armstrong drove for a layup and a 103-95 bulge with 2:28 to go.

Lynch's dunk cut the deficit to 105-102 with 1:01 left but John Amaechi tipped in a missed layup by Armstrong 22 seconds later to seal the win.

"To overcome something like that, someone who was on fire tonight like Iverson, to win a game like that is a good one for us," Garrity said.

Tariq Abdul-Wahad scored 14 points and Amaechi added 13 off the bench for Orlando, which shot 51 percent (44-of-86) from the field and committed only 11 turnovers. The Magic's bench held a 59-25 scoring edge.

"I wish I could tell you it was me, but I can't," magic coach Doc Rivers said. "It's all about what they are doing and it is nothing about what I'm doing."

Rookie Todd MacCulloch had 10 points and 12 rebounds and Eric Snow handed out a season-high 10 assists for Philadelphia, which shot 47 percent (43-of-91) and held a 47-40 edge on the glass. The Sixers were without injured big men Theo Ratliff, Matt Geiger and Tyrone Hill.

"How many teams in the league play without their front line?" Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We have not even practiced with the guys we are playing with. We give ourselves a chance to win every game and I think that's a positive."

"When we get Theo back we can get guys playing their normal positions," Lynch said.

Iverson made 18-of-33 shots, including 5-of-6 from behind the arc. He scored 37 points in Monday's win over Seattle but had more help from teammate Larry Hughes in that game. Hughes was held to seven points after collecting a career-high 27 against the SuperSonics.

"He came up big for us," Lynch said. "We just needed some guys to play a bigger role offensively. We did not get that tonight."

"He played great, he gave us a chance to win," Brown said. "I think he has got to improve defensively but he gave us a second chance to win. He was phenomenal."

The defending NBA scoring champion, Iverson was on fire in the third quarter. He collected 22 points over the final 8 1/2 minutes, sending Armstrong to the bench with foul trouble and scorching rookie replacement Chucky Atkins.

In a 74-second span, Iverson made a 3-pointer, a 22-footer from the corner and another 3-pointer, giving Philadelphia a 74-71 lead in the final minute of the period.

"I think that is the hottest I have ever been in my career," said Iverson, who made nine straight shots at one point. "That is the hottest ever."

Iverson and the Sixers got off to a slow start as the Magic opened a 18-6 lead on Armstrong's running jumper just over five minutes into the game. But Philadelphia closed to 25-24 after one quarter without any help from Iverson.

MacCulloch's layup gave the Sixers a 41-31 lead with 5:14 left in the second period but Garrity scored eight points the rest of the way as Orlando closed to 47-45 at halftime.
