Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- With Tracy McGrady still suspended, Darrell Armstrong took over.

Armstrong had 29 points and 11 assists and took over down the stretch, rallying the Orlando Magic to a 103-99 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies.

McGrady served the second of his two-game suspension for a fight with Sacramento's Bobby Jackson, leaving the Magic without their leading scorer and only player who demands a double-team.

"It's fun when somebody goes out and the team just rises to the occasion," said Armstrong, who made 10-of-15 shots.

In the absence of the All-Star swingman, Armstrong took over in the final five minutes. He had five points and two assists in an 11-0 surge that gave Orlando a 96-91 lead, then answered a 3-pointer by Mike Bibby with one of his own with 41 seconds to play.

Magic rookie Mike Miller had a clutch jumper and two free throws in the final 16 seconds. Miller also stepped up in McGrady's absence, scoring 23 points after contributing 18 in Wednesday's win at Cleveland.

"We don't have our main guy in here tonight, Tracy McGrady," Armstrong said. "He's a big key for us because he's our go-to guy. Somebody had to make something happen. Mike Miller, myself, Bo (Outlaw), everybody chipped in."

"It was tough," Miler said. "Without Tracy, our offense isn't nearly the same."

Damon Jones scored a career-high 21 points for the Grizzlies, who fell to 0-3 on their eight-game road trip. Vancouver has dropped seven straight meetings with Orlando.

"This loss is real tough, because we felt like we had control of the game for 42 minutes," Jones said. "We failed to execute down the stretch. We did not execute on the defensive end, either."

The Grizzlies held a 78-74 lead after three quarters and built it to 91-85 with 4:50 left on a basket by Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who scored 17 points. Armstrong fed Michael Doleac for a jumper less than a minute later to trigger the decisive run.

He added two free throws and Outlaw made one before Armstrong found Miller for a 3-pointer and a 93-91 lead with 2:15 to play.

Mike Bibby was called for charging with 1:35 to go and received a technical foul for arguing the call. Armstrong made the foul shot, then drove for a layup 16 seconds later to cap the burst.

Bibby answered with a 3-pointer, but Armstrong beat the shot clock with one of his own.

"I just wanted to come back here tonight and show the fans what I'm made of," said Armstrong, who felt he played poorly in the loss to Sacramento. "We all have ups and downs. ... Me and my teammates, we played our tails off. We just worked hard and got this win."

After Abdur-Rahim drove for a three-point play to make it 99-97 with 35 seconds left, Miller took a pass from Armstrong and made a 16-footer for a four-point lead. Jones made two free throws but so did Miller to seal it.

"I thought Darrell was terrific," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "I thought Mike Miller was terrific."

"I think he's realizing that I'm trying to step up and do some things," said Miller, who made 8-of-16 shots. "Shots went in tonight. That's what helped."

Don Reid scored 12 points, John Amaechi added 11 and Outlaw 10 and 10 rebounds for the Magic, who shot 51 percent (40-of-79).

Bibby scored 15 points and Grant Long added 13 for Vancouver, which shot 44 percent (33-of-75), including 9-of-15 from the arc.

"They made plays," Grizzlies coach Sidney Lowe said. "They executed well down the stretch, they read the defense and they were very aggressive and they hit the shots."

Jones scored 12 points in the first half, when Vancouver shot 54 percent (21-of-38) and opened a 57-51 lead.

"In the second quarter, they really got hot," Armstrong said. "They felt like they could come in here and win after that."
