Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Orlando Magic coach Don Rivers might have taken Tracy McGrady for granted, but his star guard did not overlook the hapless Cleveland Cavaliers. McGrady scored 23 of his 39 points in the third quarter as the Magic rolled past the NBA-worst Cavaliers, 109-85, for their third straight win. McGrady had nine points over the first 2:36 of the third, extending Orlando's lead to 63-44. His acrobatic reverse layup with 1.5 seconds remaining in the period pushed the advantage to 84-64. "It's amazing with Tracy. I honestly didn't know (how many he scored) because the last I looked was in the second quarter and he had 11," Rivers said. "Right before I took him out, I just glanced up at the board and saw 39, I didn't see that - I don't know where that came from. "Obviously in the third quarter, but I was clueless to what he was doing, let's put it that way." Overall, McGrady shot 12-of-21 from the field and 12-of-13 from the line en route to his eighth straight 30-point game - tying the team record he set from January 16-February 2. He also reached the 20-point mark for the 39th straight game, extending another club mark. "I'm just in a great rhythm right now, playing at a high level, trying to maintain (that) for the rest of the season," said McGrady, who matched a franchise record for points scored against the Cavaliers. Shaquille O'Neal also scored 39 points vs. Cleveland on April 10, 1996. "(Cleveland) is a team that if you go out and play a lackadaisical game, then you've got yourself a ballgame," said McGrady, who sat out the fourth quarter. "But if you come out and just play, which we did, stick to our game plan, don't take these guys for granted, then you are going to give yourself a chance to rest the key plays." Darrell Armstrong was the only other Magic player in double figures with 14 points. Rookie Gordan Giricek and Andrew DeClercq added nine apiece for Orlando, which has won 11 of 15 games since trading for Giricek and Drew Gooden on February 19. "(McGrady) gets the ball to a group of guys I refer to as parasites," Cavaliers coach Keith Smart said. "They simply feed off his greatness. I'm not saying in any way these guys are bad players, they just feed off McGrady and it's enhancing what they do." Gooden sat out with a sprained right toe suffered in Wednesday's victory over Miami. The Magic swept the four-game season series from Cleveland for the first time and have won seven of the last eight meetings. "Great win for us. We did what we had to do," Rivers said. "One of the things I told the guys before the game, I think it's very difficult to sweep an NBA basketball team. I don't care what their record is, to beat them four times in a year is really nice." Milt Palacio scored 15 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas contributed 12 for the league-worst Cavaliers, who went winless on a three-game road trip and have dropped 16 of their last 18 overall. "It was our mistakes of turning the ball over and them playing their game," Smart said. "They played a good game. They're playing for a purpose of keeping their position in the playoff hunt or moving up, so that's what they're trying to establish." Giricek put Orlando ahead for good, 19-16, with a 3-pointer with 5:11 left in the first quarter. Armstrong's basket capped a 13-4 run and gave the Magic a 40-29 lead with 4:56 to go in the second. McGrady's dunk provided them with a 50-40 cushion and the lead never dipped below double digits. The Magic shot 43.5 percent (40-of-92) from the field but went 23-of-28 at the free-throw line. Orlando, which sits comfortably in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, also recorded 20 steals, led by Pat Garrity's career-high five. Ricky Davis had 12 points and eight assists for Cleveland while reserves Jumaine Jones and Chris Mihm chipped in 12 and 11 points, respectively. The Cavs shot 46 percent and were outrebounded, 44-39.
