Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- The Miami Heat played without Tim Hardaway and much of anything else, for that matter.

With Hardaway injured, Tracy McGrady scored 24 points and rookie Mike Miller added 21 as the Orlando Magic cruised to a 90-73 victory over the Heat, a possible first-round playoff opponent.

The Heat have a slim lead in the race for the third seed in the Eastern Conference but will play their final two games without Hardaway, their point guard who was placed on the injured list before the game with a foot injury.

"When you don't have him in there, you lose a lot -- not just points, but leadership," Magic point guard Darrell Armstrong said. "You lose a guy who knows when to get other guys their shot."

Unable to rally in his absence, Miami scored 13 points in the second quarter, trailed by 19 at halftime and were down 27 in the final period en route to their second straight loss.

"We got out butts whipped," guard Eddie Jones said.

The Heat were coming off Friday night's 94-82 loss in Toronto.

"We won five in a row and got a little bit full of ourselves," coach Pat Riley said. "We have taken two bad losses in a row by two very hungry teams."

Anthony Mason had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who shot just 36 percent (26-of-72) from the field and committed 22 turnovers.

"The only guy I thought came to play was Anthony," Riley said.

More importantly, they remained just one game ahead of New York for third place in the East with two games remaining for both teams. The Knicks, who lost in Philadelphia on Sunday, hold the tiebreaker by winning the season series.

"The Heat didn't have Hardaway and the Knicks lost before the game, so it is easy for the Heat to lose focus," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "The way I see it is Philadelphia is 1, Milwaukee is 1A and Miami is 1B.

"If the Heat can get it together in time, I don't see how they can lose."

Troy Hudson scored 17 points for Orlando, which needed to play McGrady for only 24 minutes. He was 11-of-20 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.

"Tracy is terrific," Rivers said. "It is amazing how good of a player he is."

Miller went 4-of-6 from 3-point range and grabbed eight rebounds as the Magic snapped a three-game road losing streak and moved within one-half game of Charlotte for sixth place in the East.

Orlando, which was coming off a win against the 76ers and a loss to Washington, dropped the first two meetings with Miami this season by a combined 48 points, including an 81-59 setback at home on January 27.

"We beat Philadelphia, lose to Washington and come down against a team we haven't beaten all year and blow them out by 20 points," McGrady said. "I just don't understand that."

The third seed plays the sixth seed in the best-of-five first-round series.

But the Heat will be fortunate to nail down the third seed with Hardaway injured. Starting at the point in his place Sunday was Anthony Carter, who had five points and no assists in 17 minutes.

Rookie guard Eddie House was stretched to 35 minutes but is more of a scorer than a playmaker. He had 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting and only one assist.

House and Carter also combined to go 0-of-3 from the field during a 10-0 run that allowed the Magic to build a 44-27 lead with 5:47 left in the second quarter.

John Amaechi opened the run with a hook and Pat Garrity followed with a trio of jumpers, including a 3-pointer. After Alonzo Mourning and Carter missed jumpers, Amaechi hit the second of two free throws to cap the run.

The Magic led by at least 12 points the rest of the way and by no fewer than 19 over the first 15:23 of the second half. Their biggest lead, 83-56, came after a three-point play by Hudson with 9:25 left.

"The second quarter was the quarter we blew it open," Garrity said. "But we didn't stop after that. The third quarter, we even extended the lead, and that was nice."

Hudson started and played 35 minutes at point guard. Armstrong was activated from the injured list before the game but did not play.

Amaechi had nine points and eight rebounds for the Magic, who shot 46 percent (34-of-74), going 7-of-19 from 3-point range. Charles Outlaw did not score but had nine rebounds and four blocks.

"Team shooting in the first half was unbelievable," Rivers said. "However, the key to this game was our defense. Everyone was active and our traps were effective."

Other than Mason, the Heat got just 14 points from their starters. Mourning had six on 3-of-11 shooting to go along with seven rebounds in 20 minutes.

"When I'm out there on the court, I should have an impact on the game," he said. "This evening, I didn't and I place a lot of the blame on my shoulders."

Mourning started for the first in 11 games since returning from a kidney ailment.

"I made the decision to start him a week ago," Riley said. "I think we have to get to it and be realistic about it. We need three games with him in the starting lineup."

Carter, Dan Majerle and Bruce Bowen combined for only eight points while going 3-of-14 from the floor to round out Miami's starting five.

The Heat's bench totaled 39 points, but Jones, the team's leading scorer, had only four in 24 minutes and Brian Grant had just six -- all from the line.

"They executed their defensive scheme perfectly," Grant said. "They made us do things that we didn't want to do. We weren't able to hit open shots. They converged on the big men real quickly."
