Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- The Orlando Magic learned that All-Star forward Grant Hill will be out a little longer, but Tracy McGrady seems to have no problem playing the role of the No. 1 option.

McGrady scored 10 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter, when the Magic pulled away for their fourth straight win, a 103-93 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

McGrady made 15-of-31 shots and scored over 30 points for the fifth time this season. He and Darrell Armstrong combined on a 14-3 run and the Magic opened a 98-90 lead with 1:42 to go when Antonio McDyess was called for goaltending on a short jumper by McGrady.

"Just got to keep them rolling man. I'm hot right now, I'm very confident out on the floor, very comfortable with this system," said McGrady, who is averaging 34 points during Orlando's streak. "These guys are feeding me the ball and I'm just trying to come through for them."

Rookie Mike Miller again provided a spark off the bench for Orlando, scoring 19 points in 27 minutes. Armstrong had 17 and nine assists and McGrady pulled down a season-high 12 rebounds as the Magic held a 49-40 advantage on the boards.

"I've got to go in there when I get playing time and be aggressive," Miller said. "Tonight, shots were falling which is good. I've just got to be aggressive whenever they call on me."

Armstrong and Miller combined to make 7-of-15 3-pointers while the Nuggets were just 2-of-15 from long range.

Armstrong gave the Magic the lead for good at 91-89 when he sank three free throws with 3 1/2 minutes left. After Nick Van Exel missed a short jumper, Armstrong sank a 25-footer for a 94-89 advantage with 2:59 left.

"That is why it's disappointing. We played awfully hard, we got beat at the 3-point line tonight," Denver coach Dan Issel said. "Armstrong made a couple big ones. Mike Miller played extremely well."

Hill, who played just the first two games of the season before re-injuring his ankle that was operated on in May, practiced with team Wednesday and possibly was going to return tonight. But the 6-8 forward now is scheduled to return Monday, when the Magic begin a four-game West Coast trip against the Los Angeles Clippers.

McDyess had 28 points and 12 rebounds for Denver, which looked weary after a 95-78 defeat Thursday in Miami. The Nuggets shot an abysmal 1-of-18 from the floor in the fourth quarter, when they were outscored, 27-14.

Van Exel had 19 points and six assists, all in the first three periods. He was 0-for-4 during Denver's fourth-quarter collapse.

"Nick had his way early," Armstrong said. "I kind of got frustratred because I wasn't picking him up like I should. But in the fourth peirod I started denying him the ball and no one else could get into it offensively. Our confidence never changes. This team's still learning about each other but by midseason we want this team to be a team that you cannot break."

McDyess scored 19 points and Van Exel added 12 in the first half, when Denver built a 55-46 lead.

The Magic used a 10-1 burst and closed the deficit to 73-71 on Miller's jumper with 2:13 left in the third period. Denver took a 79-76 edge into the final quarter after Van Exel made two free throws with 2.3 seconds left for his final points.

Miller opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer to give the Magic their first lead since the second period.

Denver's only basket in the final quarter was a layup by McDyess for an 86-84 lead with 6:44 to play. Voshon Lenard, who shot just 1-of-8 from the field, made a free throw 31 seconds later. McGrady answered with a basket to begin Orlando's run with 5:25 left.

"They really dug down and played exceptional," McDyess said. "That was the hardest trap I went up against. It seemed like there were three, four people always on me, even before I got the ball. I couldn't see to pass it out. By the time I passed it out, the shot clock was out."
