Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- After Tracy McGrady rallied the Orlando Magic, his supporting cast helped them pull away. McGrady scored 20 of his 24 points in the first half before Grant Hill and Mike Miller sparked a big third quarter as the Magic improved to 2-0 for the first time in nine years with a 100-86 victory over the Miami Heat. After scoring 31 points in Tuesday's season-opening win, McGrady, an All-Star swingman, rallied the Magic from an eight-point deficit late in the second quarter. With 11:07 left in the first half, rookie Rasual Butler's 19-foot jumper gave Miami a 32-24 advantage. But rookie Ryan Humphrey's first NBA basket sparked a 30-13 run, during which McGrady scored nine consecutive points. In the first 24 minutes, the Magic shot 65 percent (22-of-34) from the floor, including 7-of-10 by McGrady. "Grant and Tracy are playing so well off of one another, it is scary," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "In preseason there was just one stretch and one game where the two played well. I thought it was going to take a while for the two to click. But so far in the first two games, they both played well at the same time, basically all game." Besides their offense, Rivers came away impressed with the play-making ability of Hill and McGrady. "It was pretty interesting to watch the two interact," said Rivers, who has seen them play just 20 games together. "At one stretch in the third quarter, Grant got it going and T-Mac fed Grant. Then Grant got tired and started feeding T-Mac and then T-Mac got it going. It is amazing when you can tag-team your opponent like that." The Magic pulled away midway through the third quarter, when Hill had eight of his 17 points and Miller eight of his 16. The duo combined to shoot 13-of-20, and Orlando clicked at 55 percent (39-of-71). On Orlando's first two possessions of the second half, McGrady and Hill consecutive jumpers. Shortly thereafter, Hill gave Orlando its first double-digit lead of the game, 65-55, with jumpers on consecutive possessions. At the end of the third quarter, Miller got around veteran guard Travis Best and hit an unconstested eight-footer to make it 80-69. "What is scary is about this team, we don't realize how good we can be," McGrady said. "We have a lot of depth. Guys come off the bench that can really shoot the ball, rebound and defend well. They just have to play through Grant and me. The ball has to go through us and then they can play us." "It is a ball playing with him," said Hill about McGrady. "It is easy. I have never played with a guy like that before. I can rest at times and he can get going and then I get going and he can rest. I think that will help us as we go into the postseason." The Heat went scoreless for the first 4:48 of the final period, allowing Orlando to take a 90-69 lead. Jacque Vaughn stole Eddie House's pass and converted a layup, Pat Garrity took a pass from Vaughn and made a 20-footer, Miller converted a three-point play and Garrity followed Miller with a free throw and and easy layup, which capped the run. "We just lost our focus and our concentration at a time when the game was to our liking and we were playing with energy," said Heat coach Pat Riley, who is coming off his first non-playoff season. "He went to a small lineup and that changed the whole course of events. As soon as they put the two shooters in, Garrity and Miller, and let Hill and McGrady make all the plays, we were paralyzed. The whole game changed at that time. You can see the look on our players face when Hill and McGrady started to play." Playing in his first game for the Heat, Best scored 22 points. Malik Allen also had a career-high 22 points, but Eddie Jones had just six in 32 minutes. Miami swingman Caron Butler, the first lottery selection of coach Riley's career, scored 16 points on 8-of-14 shooting. The Magic, who improved to 2-0 for the fourth time overall, won for just the fifth time in their last 21 meetings with the Heat. "Well it's better than 0-2," Hill said. "We feel pretty good. We came out and played very good teams last night and we got a good win. We came out tonight on Miami's opening night after an emotional win for us last night. We were able to come out and play well. It was a good test for us."
