Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Tyronn Lue did his best to shoot the Orlando Magic back into their contest against the Chicago Bulls. It was not quite good enough. Jamal Crawford collected 29 points and eight assists and Donyell Marshall 25 and 11 rebounds as the Bulls handed the Magic a fourth straight loss, 106-100. Tyson Chandler, who made his final 14 free throws, added 22 points and nine rebounds for the Bulls, who snapped a 12-game road losing streak dating to last season. Chicago, which is 1-1 away from the United Center, went just 3-38 on the road last campaign. "Well, the big thing is that we really had some guys find themselves tonight," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "I started Donyell Marshall tonight and he stepped up huge. Jamal as well. The big thing was our effort and intensity and how we competed was just wonderful." Chicago, which had lost its last nine visits to Orlando, trailed, 71-64, with four minutes left in the third quarter before closing the period with a 14-3 run, taking the lead for good, 74-72, on a basket by Marshall with 1:49 left. The Bulls took their biggest lead, 95-84, on a 3-pointer by Marshall with 6:13 remaining before Orlando made a late charge behind Lue. The point guard nailed three 3-pointers in a 2 1/2-minute stretch to pull the Magic within 101-99 with 62 seconds left. But Jalen Rose countered with a huge shot from the arc with 41 seconds to play, and the Magic were blanked from the field thereafter. The Bulls, who had shot under 30 percent in their prior two games, connected on 54 percent (39-of-77), while the Magic shot 46 percent (40-of-87). "We were struggling on the road and they were struggling at home," said Marshall, whose team dropped Orlando to 0-4 on a five-game homestand. "It came down to who wanted it more." Tracy McGrady scored 23 points - just four in the second half as the Bulls used more zone defense - and Lue added 19 for Orlando. "I'm frustrated," McGrady said. "I'm frustrated from the simple fact that the NBA needs to take out the zone. Guys as myself, having trouble playing our normal game. Teams are struggling as well. They say they want to speed up the game, well, take out the zone. It'll speed a game, more points will be put on the board. ... "To me, it's frustrating because I love to entertain. I mean, you play a zone on me like that and I don't know if you guys (media) realize that, or the fans realize that, but my job is real tough when a team zones up on us. I can't do anything." Orlando coach Doc Rivers attributed McGrady's poor second half on his decision to have him play 43 minutes, including the whole second half. "Whenever you play him 24 straight minutes, he has nothing left," Rivers said. "He wanted to stay in and we were struggling, were down. It was a tough call for me to let him stay in. I think it always comes back to haunt you." Paced by Crawford, the Bulls had great success on the break, outscoring Orlando, 20-1. "I think it starts with me," Crawford said. "I am the point guard and I have to come out with energy. I think my teammates feed off of that and we are all running. We needed this win very, very bad." "That was a big performance by Jamal," Chandler said. "Not only did he have a great game offensively, he kept everybody involved. He played within the rhythm of the offense. When you do that, it gives everybody a chance to rebound, everybody a chance to carry themselves and a chance to get back on defense." Despite 14 points from McGrady, the Magic trailed, 28-24, after one quarter. But they took a 58-54 advantage into the break. "He killed us down here last year and that was in the back of our minds," Marshall said of McGrady. "He started like that tonight but in the second half we did a good job overloading to his side and keeping the ball out of his hands." "We had to have a posse on him," Crawford said. "He's a great player but everyone stepped up and helped out." Orlando was coming off a 75-68 loss here to New York on Monday in which it shot a franchise-low 25 percent (21-of-84). "One night we can't score, the next night we can't keep the other team from scoring," Rivers said. "It's very frustrating - we don't like it, trust me," said Magic forward Juwan Howard, who had 14 points. "It's trying to improve night in and night out. Trying to put both of them together, offense and our defense, and tonight we had a little slippage in our defense. So once we get both of them together, we'll win a lot of games."
