Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- The Miami Heat had as much success slowing down Tracy McGrady as the rest of the league has had this season - little. McGrady reached the 30-point plateau for a seventh straight game as the Orlando Magic pulled away from the Heat, 109-93, for their 10th victory in 14 games. McGrady, who missed practice on Tuesday after the shooting death of close friend and former high school teammate Eric Anderson, scored 36 points on 11-of-18 shooting and added nine assists and six rebounds for the Magic, who improved to 3-0 against their intrastate rivals this season. "In the first quarter, (Anderson's death) was all I was thinking of," McGrady said. "I was saying to myself, 'What am I doing out here?' Finally I realized I had a game to play. I was out there so I might as well go ahead and do my job, so I just went ahead and started playing and forgot about it." "The death of his friend had an absolute impact on him tonight," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "It's a tough thing when that happens - when the real world comes into our make-believe world. That's what happened. I thought the guys were great with him, kept encouraging him through the game." Pat Garrity and rookie Gordan Giricek added 18 points apiece for Orlando, which entered the contest in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, two games ahead of Milwaukee and Washington, who are tied for the eighth and final playoff berth. "I saw something in Tracy McGrady that I haven't seen in a player all year," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "He made everybody on his team better. Our game plan was to take him out of it, and he still got 36. The 18 points that Garrity and Giricek got, a lot of it was attributed to McGrady hitting guys with passes right on the numbers. He was amazing tonight." "It was just moving the ball and trusting my teammates, not trying to do too much, just going with the flow," McGrady said. "Those guys were doubling, my guys were knocking down shots." McGrady and Garrity each made four shots from the arc for Orlando, which matched its season high with 12 3-pointers. Miami had only three. "(Garrity) is deadly because he just needs a little bit of space," Heat center Brian Grant said. "That is where he poses a problem. He gets to the open space and he is a great shooter." The game was tied, 43-43, before McGrady gave Orlando the lead for good with a pair of free throws with 4:31 left in the first half. The league's leading scorer added a dunk and 3-pointer in the next 93 seconds to help the Magic extend their advantage to 59-50 entering the break. "I think once I cranked it up, buckled down and got focused, the team followed my lead and got on a tear and didn't look back," McGrady said. McGrady, who had 12 points in the second quarter, added 13 in the third to help the Magic open up an 88-76 lead entering the final 12 minutes. He exited for good with 5:12 to play and his team ahead by 20 points, its biggest lead. Magic rookie Drew Gooden injured a toe in the second quarter and did not return. "Drew Gooden hurt his big toe, I think, and we're going to get it re-evaluated tomorrow," Rivers said. "(I'm a) little concerned because that's a very difficult injury." Rookie Caron Butler scored 20 points and Grant added 17 for the Heat, who lost for the eighth time in nine games. "We just need to keep playing harder and harder," said Butler, who scored 12 points in the first quarter. "We ned to just leave it out on the court." "Caron Butler I thought was phenomenal," Rivers said. "He's going to be a hell of a player." Orlando led by just 32-29 after one quarter, a period in which McGrady scored just three points. But he soon got untracked, and the Magic soon pulled away. "There isn't anybody in the league that can stop McGrady," Riley said. "He's been getting 35 points on everybody in the league. So you sort of pick your poison against him. "It's indicative of his greatness as a player - in the first quarter I don't think he had a field goal. He was so patient, he never tried to force it. He kept getting off the ball because he knew his shots would come. That to me is a guy that really has a handle on the game."
