Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Tracy McGrady and the Orlando Magic do not like the Milwaukee Bucks. They would like nothing more than to knock them out of the playoff picture. McGrady scored 48 points in another virtuoso performance as the Magic rolled to their seventh victory in eight games, a 111-99 rout of the Bucks. A strong MVP candidate, McGrady made 17-of-34 shots, 6-of-11 3-pointers and 8-of-13 free throws as he abused defensive-minded Desmond Mason and Tim Thomas. He also had 10 rebounds and five assists before sitting down to a huge ovation in the final minute, four points shy of his career high. "Today was one of those days where guys were getting kind of tired," McGrady said. "Those type of games, you've just got to come out and get in the game and get yourself going right away." McGrady's play was so sensational he reduced players on both teams to spectators. "Desmond played great defense," Bucks guard Gary Payton said. "He just made shots. He was playing like he was on the playground." "The cheers turn into 'oohs' after every shot," teammate Pat Garrity said. "It's kind of fun to watch, fun to be a part of." McGrady continues to beat up on the Bucks. In his last three games against them dating to last season, he has scored 48, 47 and 48 points. He did not play in a 108-103 home loss on December 23. "Once he gets to that spot you give him the ball and get the hell out of the way and tou sit down and watch it," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "He reminds me a little of Dominique (Wilkins) in that when you get going and some of the stuff he shoots isn't exactly the shot you were looking for, but it's going in." Rookie Drew Gooden scored a season-high 26 points and pulled down 16 rebounds for the Magic, who have won five straight home games. The loss knocked Milwaukee (30-31) into a tie with Washington for eighth place in the East. Orlando (32-30) is 1 1/2 games ahead of both clubs. "They're in our way," McGrady said. "Milwaukee, Washington and us, three teams that are fighting to get into the playoffs." The Magic have won two of three meetings this season after taking just two of the previous 15. The teams meet in Milwaukee on the last day of the season. In the 1999-2000 season, an overachieving Magic squad had its playoff dreams shattered by a late-season home loss to the Bucks. McGrady came on board the next season, but Orlando was eliminated by Milwaukee in the first round. "When a team comes in and doesn't respect you, you make them respect you," Magic guard Darrell Armstrong said. "That's what it's all about. You let them do all the talking and let us do all the winning. That's what we're trying to do." Adding fuel to the fire last year, Bucks coach George Karl made comments that questioned whether Rivers had paid his dues before becoming a head coach. Karl later apologized, but the damage was done. "That's in the past for me and George," Rivers said. "It probably should have never gotten to that point, but it did. We both learned from that." In addition, both teams made key trades to help their playoff push, and the Magic seem to be getting more out of their deal. They have won six of seven since acquiring rookies Gooden and Gordan Giricek from Memphis, while the Bucks are just 3-5 since dealing for Mason and Payton. "I sure like a lot of things that are going on out there on the court for us," Karl said. "Orlando has done a pretty good job of putting together a very good basketball team." The Magic took the lead for good at 28-25 with 1:37 left in the first quarter on a 3-pointer by Armstrong. That was part of a 10-0 run that carried into the second period and gave Orlando a 32-25 lead. A 3-pointer by Sam Cassell pulled the Bucks within 48-44 with 2:41 left in the first half, but McGrady answered with a pair of 3-pointers to trigger a 14-0 burst. Giricek added a 3-pointer and Garrity sank a free throw after Payton was called for a technical foul, giving Orlando a 58-44 halftime lead. "Our rhythm offensively really broke down when we went to our bench in the first and second quarters," Karl said. "I don't know if we had enough energy to be able to come back from a big hole." Gooden opened the second half with a pair of inside hoops for a 62-44 bulge. After scoring 14 points in the second quarter, McGrady had 16 in the third, including Orlando's last 13 over the final 2:45 to widen the lead to 89-66. "I really didn't like the way the game was going," McGrady said. "I think before I got it going, I had only touched the ball two times (in the quarter). I just looked over at the bench and gave Doc that look, and it was on from there." "He's just unbelievable," Armstrong said. "He does things in quarters, he does things in games that make you shake your head and say, `What's next?'" In the final period, McGrady had another 11 to turn back a half-hearted rally by Milwaukee. "I was just in one of those moods and I didn't want to come out of the game," McGrady said. "He wanted to take me out but I wouldn't let him." Giricek scored 15 points and Shawn Kemp swept 10 boards for the Magic, who shot 45 percent (42-of-93), made 9-of-24 3-pointers. Payton and Michael Redd scored 16 points each and Cassell and Tim Thomas added 15 apiece for the Bucks, who shot 43 percent (38-of-88) and were pounded on the glass, 57-40.
