Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Orlando Magic look ready for the postseason. The same could not be said for the Indiana Pacers. Tracy McGrady had 35 points and 11 rebounds as the Magic clinched a playoff berth with a 98-86 victory over the Pacers. One of the candidates for MVP, McGrady has carried the Magic all season. It was no different Friday as the star swingman scored 26 points in the first half, helping the Magic overcome an early 15-point deficit. "We clinched a playoff spot, which is really great for us," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "It's nice to get that in our back pocket because now I can try some different things with this team." Darrell Armstrong added 15 points and Pat Garrity eight of his 11 in the fourth quarter for Orlando, which dominated the second half when it outscored Indiana, 53-40. The Magic have won two straight following a four-game losing streak. Jermaine O'Neal had 23 points and 13 rebounds for the Pacers, who were badly outworked on both ends of the floor in the last 2 1/2 quarters. Afterward, Pacers coach Isiah Thomas was critical of his team. "I told them they had become one of the most selfish groups of players I've seen in a while," Thomas said. "The way we're playing offensively is selfish. We don't move the ball, we don't set screens." "We're probably looking ahead to far right now," said Pacers veteran guard Reggie Miller, whop managed just four points in 28 minutes. "We've got to focus on the task at hand. You want to be playing well going into the playoffs. Right now, we're not playing Pacers basketball." Indiana looked energized at the start, shooting 53 percent (10-of-19) in the first quarter as it build a 27-17 lead behind nine points by O'Neal. The Magic shot just 23 percent (6-of-26) in the period. A 3-pointer by Austin Croshere gave the Pacers their biggest lead at 34-19 with 9:56 left in the half. They still were ahead, 40-26, with 6:57 to play before intermission on a dunk by Jonathan Bender, who finished with 16 points and five assists. But McGrady drilled consecutive 3-pointers and made another long jumper as the Magic began to find their offense. McGrady scored 16 points in the quarter, including eight in an 11-0 surge over the final 2:45 of the period, pulling the Magic within 46-45. "This was a big challenge for us tonight," McGrady said. "We stepped up to the plate. This team (Indiana) has been giving us all kinds of problems in the past because really, we don't match up with them, especially with their bigs. "But we just attacked them. They came out with a lot of energy at the start. But we were able to ride it out. Then, we were able to turn up our energy midway through the second quarter." Despite another big game, McGrady did struggle from the field as he made just 11-of-32 shots. He did go 5-of-10 from 3-point range and 8-of-11 at the free throw line. Rivers had nothing but praise for his star. "T-Mac is incredible," Rivers said. "He's amazing. He runs the team a little like Dominique (Wilkins) used to, but I think he does it more. The team really rides T-Mac's emotion." A layup by Jamaal Tinsley gave the Pacers a 55-51 lead. But the Magic responded with a 14-2 surge that featured easy baskets to open a 65-57 lead. During the run, the Magic had three dunks, including one by rookie Gordan Giricek to cap it with 4:26 left. Giricek and Steven Hunter each added 10 points as the Magic shot 38 percent (33-of-87). They did make 10-of-21 attempts from 3-point range and converted 16 turnovers by the Pacers into 23 points. Not nearly as strong as the Pacers up front, the Magic were able to manage a 53-47 rebounding advantage. They also had 15 boards on the offensive glass. "I think the turnaround in the game, we gave up too many rebounds, especially on the offensive end," Bender said. "We were all just up and down all night. We have to start getting this playoff mentality going and play like we did at the beginning of the season." The Pacers seemed to regroup as they scored the next eight points to tie it. But Armstrong scored four points around a three-point play by Shawn Kemp to help the Magic grab a 72-65 lead entering the final period. After Bender split a pair at the line to pull the Pacers within one, Garrity scored five straight points in a 12-2 run. He capped the spurt with another 3-pointer with 4:40 to go, pushing the lead to 86-75. Al Harrington added 10 points for the Pacers, who shot 41 percent (33-of-81).
