Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The venue may have changed, but the result was the same: The Orlando Magic blew out the Memphis Grizzlies.

Tracy McGrady scored 25 points and added 10 rebounds and seven assists despite sitting out the fourth quarter as the Magic crushed the Grizzlies for the second time this season and ninth game in a row, 119-103.

The game was much more lopsided than the final score indicated. It was very similar to the Magic's 113-71 waxing of Memphis in Orlando on December 3, the second-biggest home victory in franchise history.

In this one, Mike Miller had 11 points in the first quarter to stake the Magic to a 41-17 lead. Orlando led by as many as 33 points in the second quarter and took a 69-44 advantage into halftime.

"Anytime you can jump on a team on the road early, it's great," Miller said. "It feels good and sometimes it carries throughout the game. It was a matter of getting going. Sometimes to get the team going you got to get yourself going first."

"When Mike gets off to a good start, as a team we usually do pretty well," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said.

Memphis, which played without injured forwards Shane Battier (strained left groin) and Stromile Swift (flu), got no closer than 15 points in the second half.

"It worked to our advantage that they didn't have all their players," McGrady said. "I looked at the injury report and it looked like their whole team was on it."

Troy Hudson contributed 18 points and seven assists for the Magic, who improved to 11-1 all-time against the Grizzlies. Miller finished with 16 for Orlando, which had lost three of its last four contests.

Rookie Pau Gasol led Memphis with 26 points and a season-high 17 rebounds. Fellow first-year players Will Solomon and Antonis Fotsis added season highs of 23 and 21 points, respectively, for the Grizzlies, who have lost three in a row since a season-high three-game winning streak.

"In the third quarter, we came out and played Grizzlies basketball," Solomon said. "We showed what we could do. It just wasn't enough after we got behind by so much early. It's tough to come back from that far down."

"They played well," Memphis coach Sidney Lowe said of his reserves. "Fotsis, (Brevin) Knight and Solomon really tried to hold off the shooters. But the first quarter was really what hurt us."

Orlando took the lead for good at 6-4 on a reverse layup by Darrell Armstrong with 9:16 left in the first quarter. The Magic's advantage reached double digits at 16-6 on a layup by Horace Grant 2 1/2 minutes later, and the Grizzlies never got within single digits thereafter.

The Magic shot 52 percent overall (45-of-87) and held the Grizzlies to 43 percent (37-of-86). Orlando made 56 percent from the arc (9-of-16), while Memphis made just 29 percent (5-of-17).

"We're scoring a lot of points right now," Rivers said. "It's all off movement and guys are really shooting the ball. We had 35 assists -- that's pretty impressive."

Orlando had a 35-21 advantage in assists and outscored Memphis in the paint, 42-32.

"I don't know what it is," Rivers said. "Unfortunately for them, I don't think it's matchups. When we come out of the box making shots, its very difficult to guard us. We're really hard to stop."
