Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- After Keith Van Horn left, Tracy McGrady finally appeared. McGrady spoiled a solid debut by Van Horn, overcoming poor shooting to 26 points with a pair of clutch baskets down the stretch as the Orlando Magic rallied for an 85-83 overtime victory over the New York Knicks. McGrady made just 9-of-23 shots but helped Orlando overcome a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit. His follow shot with 0.5 seconds left sent the game into overtime. "I was getting frustrated all night and my shots weren't falling," McGrady said. "As bad as we played they never ran away with a big lead. I told my teammates if we take it to overtime, I will win this game." Van Horn, who arrived via the offseason trade that sent popular Latrell Sprewell to Minnesota, was a target for jeers during the preseason. He quickly won over the fans at Madison Square Garden by scoring 29 points and grabbing eight rebounds. "I was excited to come in here and show the Knicks fans what I can do," Van Horn said. "I wanted to come out and let my game speak for myself." But Van Horn fouled out with 34 seconds remaining in regulation. By that time, the Knicks had blown most of a 73-63 lead with 3:43 remaining in the fourth period. Van Horn didn't receive much help from his teammates. Allan Houston and Kurt Thomas scored 10 points apiece on a combined 8-of-30 shooting. The Knicks shot 40 percent (32-of-80) overall. "When he (Van Horn) left the game, it hurt us," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. "We didn't have anyone that we could go to late. We highlighted him early because he got it going and we started playing off of him." Orlando went on a 15-0 run bridging regulation and overtime to build a 78-73 lead with 3:38 left. McGrady hit a 3-pointer to cap the run and chants of "Fire Layden!" - a reference to Knicks general manager Scott Layden - echoed throughout the Garden. New York cut the overtime deficit to 85-83 on a jumper by Thomas with 17 seconds remaining and had a chance to win it after Tyronn Lue missed two free throws. But Thomas shot an airballed on a 3-pointer. Drew Gooden had 16 points and nine rebounds, Lue scored 11 points and fellow newcomer Juwan Howard added nine and 10 boards for Orlando. Howard and Lue signed as free agents during the offseason. The Magic won their fourth consecutive opener as they took advantage of 26 turnovers by the Knicks. Orlando shot just 37 percent (32-of-87) and made just 16-of-29 free throws. Van Horn scored 13 points in the third quarter as New York outscored Orlando, 25-17, to take a 59-51 lead into the fourth period. New York's Shandon Anderson scored four points in 31 minutes as he played in his 500th consecutive game, the longest current streak in the NBA.
