Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Tracy McGrady set 'em up and Horace Grant knocked 'em down.

McGrady scored 26 points and Grant added a season-high 21 as the Orlando Magic won their fourth consecutive game, 102-91 over the Philadelphia 76ers.

In addition to scoring, McGrady played all 48 minutes, totaling 10 rebounds and eight assists and often beating double-teams with passes to open teammates. The Magic shot 48 percent (39-of-81) from the field and made 10-of-19 3-pointers.

"I don't have to score," McGrady said. "If teams want to double-team me, then I will do what's best for the team and try to find my teammates. I trust in my teammates to get to the open spots and make shots. That just makes my job easier."

"I tried to take him out two or three times, but he said, `No, I am playing about 48 today and we are winning this game. I am not coming out of the game,'" Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "I am a smart coach. I listen and I left him in."

The biggest beneficiary was Grant, the veteran forward who was signed as a free agent for his post defense and ability to hit the open mid-range jumper. He made 9-of-15 shots as he posted a season high for the second time in three games.

"I don't know about being in a zone," Grant said. "The last few times, I've been confident with the ball and the guys have found me in the right spots."

"He's big for us," Rivers added. "He is a big guy who can rebound and he is a big guy who can shoot. That is one of the reasons why we brought in here. When you put him and Pat Garrity at the 4- and the 5-spot, it makes it difficult for any team to help out on defense."

In the last four minutes, Grant helped Orlando widen a two-point lead to 97-89 by making four straight jumpers. Each one came after McGrady passed out of a double-team in the low post and the Magic rotated the ball.

"Tracy is a handful," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "He's unselfish. He had eight assists. Every time you went to help, he found somebody."

Mike Miller had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Magic, who matched their longest winning streak of the season and moved above .500 (19-18) for the first time December 8, when they were 11-10.

Allen Iverson scored 27 points for the inconsistent 76ers, who failed to exploit their huge size advantage and fell to 7-7 at home. Philadelphia allowed more than 100 points for just the second time this season.

"We need to get stops and hustle and scramble like we always did," Iverson said. "We don't have that team no more. We just sit back and let everything come to us."

Asked what can be done to improve the team, Iverson said, "I don't know. It's not my job to fix things or put guys in the right spots. It ain't my job, I don't have any control over that. I don't have control over who comes in or who goes out. I don't know about that stuff until after it happens."

Brown admitted he did not do a good job of rotating his players. Six players played all but 14 of 240 possible minutes.

"I think I substituted terribly," he said. "I don't want to take guys out when they're struggling or when they make a mistake. I had some guys out on the court too long. That's not acceptable."

"Sometimes, with the momentum of the game, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, unless somebody tells you they're tired and they need to come out," Iverson said. "Sometimes you have to just let it flow, let it go the way it's going."

The Sixers pared a nine-point deficit to 81-80 on Eric Snow's layup with 6:33 remaining. Jumpers by Darrell Armstong and Grant rebuilt the Magic's lead to 88-82 with 3:56 to go.

After Iverson made a layup, McGrady made three free throws and Grant hit another jumper for a 93-84 bulge with 2:38 left. He answered a dunk by Dikembe Mutombo and a 3-pointer by Aaron McKie with spot-up jumpers for a 97-89 advantage with 1:06 to play.

"I had the same shot in the first half and didn't make them," Grant said. "In the second half, the coaches and the guys kept telling me to keep shooting. I was more focused in the second half."

Garrity and Troy Hudson scored 10 points apiece for Orlando, which was outrebounded, 47-34, but committed just seven turnovers.

Mutombo had 13 points and 20 rebounds, Derrick Coleman scored 13 points and Matt Harpring added 12 and 11 boards for Philadelphia, which shot 44 percent (33-of-75) and made 23-of-27 free throws but sank just two 3-pointers.

"We don't have any kind of chemistry on offense at all," Iverson said. "I don't know what the plan is right now, night in and night out, as far as on the offensive end."

A 3-pointer by Miller gave Orlando the lead for good at 11-8. Monty Williams scored five points in a 12-2 surge that extended it to 44-33 with 3:14 left in the second period.

Philadelphia trailed by six points after the second and third quarters.
