Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Trying to catch Jason Kidd in the MVP race, Tracy McGrady found his path blocked by nemesis Kenyon Martin.

Kidd spearheaded a surge in overtime and McGrady's potential tying runner was swatted away by Martin as the New Jersey Nets held on for a 101-99 victory over the Orlando Magic in a battle of playoff-bound teams.

Kidd is considered the favorite for the MVP award as he has led the Nets to their first 50-win campaign and Atlantic Division title in 26 seasons. He had another stellar all-around game with 13 points, a career-high 16 rebounds and seven assists.

"The bottom line is winning, no matter what numbers you have," Kidd said. "I think this league has always been measured on winning championships and getting your team to the playoffs."

McGrady has made a late push for the award as he has singlehandedly made the Magic one of the tougher teams in the Eastern Conference. He was phenomenal with 39 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists.

"That wasn't even on my mind," McGrady said. "I was just there to get the win. Can't get caught up in those things. Just got to go out and play like I've been playing, not worry about the MVP."

"Tracy is an unbelievable baksetball player and he came to play today," Kidd said. "He always comes to play."

Earlier this season, McGrady was flagrantly fouled by Martin, who received a two-game suspension and a stern warning from the All-Star swingman. In their next matchup, Martin harassed McGrady into 6-of-20 shooting.

After Martin found rookie Richard Jefferson for a baseline layup and the lead with 30 seconds to play, McGrady had a chance to get even. He drove right and blew past Jefferson, only to have Martin -- playing with five fouls -- come from the weak side and swat the ball against the backboard.

Orlando's Darrell Armstrong ran down the rebound but missed a 15-foot leaner at the horn.

"I thought they were going to call goaltending, because there's no telling with me," said Martin, who has been somewhat of a marked man with the referees this season.

"I couldn't tell if it was goaltending," McGrady said. "It was a great block. In a situation like that, they are probably not going to call it."

The difference between McGrady and Kidd is in their primary skills. McGrady is a scorer, while Kidd is a passer.

"We knew Tracy was going to get the ball," Scott said. "Kenyon came from the weak side and made an unbelievable block."

"We can't just watch him play," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "That is the problem when you have one great guy -- you just watch him and become mesmerized. It's easy to do that, but you cannot do that and win."

Martin had 26 points and seven assists and Keith Van Horn added 19 and 14 rebounds for the Nets (51-28), who reduced their magic number for clinching the best record in the East to one.

Pat Garrity scored 18 points for the Magic (43-35), who are two games in front of Philadelphia and Charlotte in the race for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round.

New Jersey has won the last three meetings and also has taken its last three visits to Orlando.

The Magic led by 11 points in the third quarter and still held an 85-78 lead with 6:20 left in the fourth period after a spinning three-point play by McGrady that brought chants of "MVP!" from the TD Waterhouse Centre crowd.

But Van Horn scored five points and Martin four in a 9-1 spurt that gave the Nets the lead before McGrady's drive gave the Magic an 88-87 edge with 2:10 to go.

Jefferson was fouled and his first free throw tied it. He missed the second, but Van Horn put home the rebound for a 90-88 lead with 1:40 remaining. A jumper by Garrity tied it 38 seconds later and Kidd, McGrady and Martin all missed shots in the final minute of regulation.

Martin had a follow shot and McGrady made two free throws before Kidd sparked a run. He made a free throw and layup before finding Martin for a dunk and a 97-92 lead with 2:40 to play. All three scores followed Orlando turnovers.

"Jason Kidd was really pushing the ball," Scott said. "That's what we have to do, stay in attack mode. And we got some easy buckets as a result."

"They came out and they were attacking in overtime," McGrady admitted.

Troy Hudson made a pair of jumpers before Van Horn's follow shot gave New Jersey a 99-96 lead with 1:26 left. Garrity tied it with a 3-pointer before Martin fed Jefferson with a nice pass for the go-ahead basket.

Jefferson and Aaron Williams scored 11 points each for New Jersey, which shot 47 percent (43-of-92) and held a 53-40 edge on the glass.

Mike Miller returned from a sprained left ankle to score 12 points on just 5-of-15 shooting for the Magic, who shot 41 percent (40-of-97), including 10-of-29 from 3-point range.
