Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- In a meeting of teams going in opposite directions, the Orlando Magic raced past the Charlotte Hornets.

Rookie Mike Miller scored 12 of his 17 points in the pivotal third quarter and the Magic climbed over .500 for the first time in three months with a 109-83 victory over the Hornets, extending their season-high winning streak to five games.

All-Star Tracy McGrady scored 26 points for the Magic (24-23), who shot 52 percent (42-of-81) from the floor and had six players in double figures. Darrell Armstrong collected 13 points and nine assists.

"We've been playing so well as of late," McGrady said. "We've been aggressive and much more physical than we had been earlier in the season."

Miller had 3-pointers 37 seconds apart early in the third period that extended a one-point lead to 54-47. He added six points in the final 4 1/2 minutes, including a jumper that closed the quarter and gave Orlando a 78-64 lead.

The Magic poured it on in the fourth quarter as they dealt the Hornets their worst loss of the season and moved above .500 for the first time since November 6 (3-2).

"It's nice to be over .500, but the guys are not satisfied that we're just .500," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "They're looking for more and that's impressive for such a young group."

Baron Davis scored 18 points for the slumping Hornets (25-25), who have lost four in a row and 10 of 12. Charlotte shot just 40.5 percent (32-of-79) and fell to the break-even mark for the first time since November 20 (6-6).

"I can't really say what's wrong," said Hornets forward Jamal Mashburn. "We just didn't have energy tonight."

The Magic moved past the Hornets into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.

"I haven't really watched the Hornets much and I think they have problems obviously, but I think they'll work them ou," Rivers said. "They're too talented not to. Derrick Coleman has been in and out of the lineup and I don't think that has helped them much."

Orlando took the lead for good late in the first half. After Miller's 3-pointers, Davis made a jumper but Armstrong buried a 3-pointer and McGrady sank a 16-footer for a 59-49 lead with 8:55 left in the third quarter.

"In the second half we came out with our pace of basketball," McGrady said. "When we set the pace, it's going to be tough for teams to stop us."

"We made some wild shots, I will say that," Rivers said. "Darrell Armstrong makes two threes, Mike Miller makes threes."

Charlotte got no closer than seven points thereafter. Two free throws by Miller and a driving layup by McGrady pushed the lead to 76-60 with 2:02 to go.

"We were flat in the second half for some reason," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "We didn't come out with the energy we needed. We didn't box out, we didn't set really good picks."

Any chance the Hornets had of getting back in it ended when the Magic opened the final period by scoring 11 of the first 13 points. Troy Hudson scored five points and McGrady four before two free throws by Monty Williams made it 89-66 with 9:09 to go.

Hudson scored 12 points and Williams and John Amaechi added 11 apiece for the Magic, who made 8-of-17 from the arc and held a 42-34 rebounding edge.

Eddie Robinson scored 13 points and Mashburn added 12 for the Hornets, who made 2-of-8 3-pointers.

Coleman, who has battled weight problems this season, started and had eight points and six rebounds in 22 minutes.

Coleman had been benched for two games before playing as a sub in Sunday's 85-82 loss at Phoenix. Hornets coach Paul Silas said before the game that Coleman was approaching the weight the team wanted him at and P.J. Brown offered to come off the bench.

"I'm trying to do what I can for the team," Brown said. "That's what it's all about. I don't know what the solution is but we have to find it."
