Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Orlando Magic must have forgotten they were in a playoff race.

The Magic scored just 11 points in the fourth quarter and allowed Jerry Stackhouse to explode for 33 points as the Detroit Pistons rallied for a 110-97 victory.

Orlando had a two-game winning streak snapped and fell one game behind Toronto and Charlotte, which are tied for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. Toronto won against New Jersey and Charlotte fell to Denver tonight.

"It was one of those games in my opinion where we let a team stick around that shouldn't have been sticking around," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "Not to discredit Detroit, but we had that game under control. I thought we played way too relaxed for a team that's trying to get playoff position."

Stackhouse scored 19 first-half points before Orlando took a 56-54 lead into the break. He shot 5-of-11 from the arc, 12-of-15 from the line and had nine rebounds.

"We did a great job tonight," Stackhouse said. "We stepped the defense up when we had to in the fourth quarter and picked up the intensity. I don't know where that has been, but it felt really good. It seemed like everybody was making plays, and that was the difference in the game."

The Magic had an 84-73 lead after Darrell Armstrong capped a 14-5 run with a 19-foot jumper with 2:01 left in the third quarter. But Orlando went cold and Detroit responded with a 19-6 surge, taking a 92-90 lead on Stackhouse's 3-pointer with 4:36 remaining.

Detroit's Ben Wallace added a free throw before Tracy McGrady sank two foul shots and Armstrong drilled a 3-pointer for a 95-93 lead with 3:21 to play. But the Magic never scored again, missing their last six shots.

Wallace grabbed 21 rebounds, 12 offensive, and had 14 points for Detroit, which snapped a five-game losing streak and gained a split in the season series with the Magic.

"We knew they liked to get out and run," Wallace said, who returned to the team after dealing with the death of his grandmother. "The only way to stop them is to attack the offensive boards. They can't run if they don't have the ball."

Corliss Williamson, who had 16 points, scored to tie it and Wallace gave the Pistons the lead for good with another free throw with 2:39 to go. Detroit's Mikki Moore added two from the line 30 seconds later.

The Pistons had trouble closing it out. The missed their last five shots and Stackhouse and Chucky Atkins each missed a pair of free throws in the final 2 1/2 minutes.

Armstrong and Stackhouse traded a pair of foul shots, leaving the Pistons with a 100-97 lead with 18 seconds to play. Magic rookie Mike Miller had his layup blocked by Stackhouse and Armstrong fouled Atkins, who missed both, giving Orlando one more chance.

Michael Doleac fired a 3-pointer from the top of the key that rolled off the rim and out as time expired.

"If we play like that, we shouldn't go anywhere," Rivers said. "We didn't deserve to win, they played harder. I thought we got outworked when we had more on the line than them. Credit (Pistons coach) George Irvine for that. He got his guys to play hard and for whatever reason, we thought it was a walk in the park for us."

The Magic were outscored 22-11 in the final quarter, when they shot 3-of-25. They were outrebounded 68-46, including 29-9 on the offensive glass.

"We gave it away, it didn't slip away," McGrady said. "You've got to maintain that lead. I guess we thought they'd give up, but they didn't. We gave up too many offensive rebounds and too many second shots. I thought this was a game that we should've won."

McGrady scored just 18 points on 7-of-21 shooting after tying a career high with 44 points and scoring the game-winning basket against East-leading Philadelphia in Orlando's last game.

"We've got to realize what we're trying to do," McGrady said. "We're trying to get in the playoffs. We've got to win games like this. All that hard work in Philly and then we blow it here. It will tell a lot about us in the playoffs. We've got to play as a team."
