Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers did not look much different under Keith Smart. Smart's NBA coaching debut was a disappointment as the Cavaliers suffered their fifth straight loss with a 103-94 setback to the Orlando Magic, who got 35 points from superstar Tracy McGrady. Smart replaced John Lucas, who was fired Monday after guiding the inexperienced and defenseless Cavaliers to a league-worst 8-34 mark. The former Indiana University hero did not change the starting lineup and made only minor alterations. "Like anyone, you'll have some jitters, which I had from the beginning," Smart admitted. "I didn't want the players to lose confidence in what we were trying to accomplish. We ran our basic set and got some good things out of it. And once I settled down, I said, 'Let me be Keith.' I have to be who I am and coach how I am and once I got that out of the way, I wanted the players to work for themselves before I tried to work with anything." The Cavaliers did not change their ways, either. They fell behind, 34-19, after one period as McGrady pierced their porous defense for 15 points. The Cavs trailed by 21 points after three quarters before they climbed back into it in the final period but got no closer than seven points. "To practice a day and a half and a walk-through, they did a pretty good," Smart said. "It was real laid back in the first quarter. It allowed McGrady to get going, but for the most part, the guys didn't give up, which we haven't done all year." Not even a career-high 35 points and 12 rebounds by Zydrunas Ilgauskas could rescue the Cavs, who lost for the eighth time in nine games. Cleveland allowed at least 100 points for the 24th time this season. "Guys were excited to start over again," Ilgauskas said. "There was a lot of enthusiasm. Unfortunately, we did not get the win. I think we are in the right direction." McGrady made 11-of-23 shots and 11-of-12 free throws, adding 11 rebounds and six assists in his second straight huge game. He had 35 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in Sunday's win at Toronto. "We were really concerned coming into this game with a coaching change about the intensity," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "We knew that their intensity was going to be high. We thought if we could try and jump on them early, you can kind of squash that. And Tracy came out and was on fire, which is always nice." Pat Garrity scored 20 points and Jeryl Sasser added 14 for the Magic, who again played without injured wing men Grant Hill and Mike Miller. "We're not that good of a ball team for me to come out to a slow start," McGrady said. "When you have Grant and Mike out of the lineup, it's up to me to come out to a fast start." McGrady scored 11 of Orlando's first 13 points. He added a hammer dunk off an alley-oop pass from Jacque Vaughn that made it 18-10 less than five minutes into the contest. McGrady scored another nine points in the second quarter as the Magic took a 61-48 lead into halftime. A jumper and 3-pointer by Garrity early in the third quarter pushed the advantage to 70-50. Cleveland trailed by 25 points late in the third period before rallying. A 3-pointer by rookie Dajuan Wagner, who saw increased playing time off the bench, made it 97-88 with 5:06 to go before McGrady answered with a jumper. A basket by Darius Miles, who struggled under Lucas, again cut the deficit to nine points with 4:04 left. The Cavs had a chance to get closer, but Ilgauskas - who made 15-of-28 shots - missed a reverse layup and Garrity drilled a jumper to make it 101-90 with 2:54 remaining. "(Smart) made a couple of good plays off timeouts," said Miles, who scored eight points. "I felt good out there. I had no problem with what he was doing." Vaughn and Darrell Armstrong scored 10 points each and Vaughn added 11 assists for the Magic, who shot 45 percent (37-of-83). Wagner scored 14 points and Ricky Davis added 11 with seven assists for the Cavs, who shot 42 percent (36-of-86) and held a 48-41 edge on the boards.
