Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Predrag Drobnjak showed Los Angeles Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy that he may be deserving of more playing time. Drobnjak scored all of his 13 points in the fourth quarter as the Clippers defeated the Orlando Magic, 115-106, to snap a four-game road losing streak. The Magic, who were swept by the Clippers for the first time since the 1991-92 campaign, were without All-Star guard Tracy McGrady, who missed the contest due to a death in his family. "That's a very sensitive issue," Magic coach Johnny Davis said. "Obviously, a death in the family is something that takes priority over what we're doing here, and certainly we're sensitive to that. That's just an area of personal concern." "I think he would've made a big difference," Dunleavy said. "That's 28 points out of their lineup. That would be like us being without Elton Brand. Some guys can come in and play well and pick up some of the slack, but you're probably not going to get all of his 28 points back." Marko Jaric scored 23 points and Quentin Richardson and Brand added 21 apiece for the Clippers, who had lost six of nine overall, including a 97-88 setback at Miami on Friday in the opener of an NBA season-high nine-game road trip. "We found out a little while after we got here that Tracy wasn't going to play," Richardson said. "We were prepared for him and we understand that is a huge difference because he is the second-leading scorer in the league. That is a difference. We needed to get this win whether he was here or not. This was a must win." Acquired from Seattle in a sign-and-trade during the offseason, Drobnjak had played just 13 minutes in the last four games. He matched that total Saturday and sparked a late surge that sealed the win. "I just tried to come in and make some shots," Drobnjak said. "It is only one game, but we will see how it will go the rest of the season. If feels pretty good." "He's been working hard the last few days in practice where he's been making some shots," Dunleavy said. "I gave the other guys a chance, but they weren't doing what he found a way to do. I was basically rotating guys through, and when you get an opportunity you have to play well to move up the ladder, and stay consistent." After the Clippers saw a 14-point third-quarter lead dwindle to 84-78 early in the fourth quarter, Drobnjak answered with a jump shot to begin an 11-4 run, which ended on a dunk by Corey Maggette that made it 95-82 with 6:17 left. Drobnjak scored seven points during the burst. Gordan Giricek had 20 points and Juwan Howard 19 for the Magic, who made half their shots but allowed the Clippers shoot 53 percent (40-of-75). "I thought that overall they played hard," Davis said of his squad. "I didn't think anybody was out there not giving effort. I thought the Clippers shot the ball well. Now, having said that, we certainly need to close in a little big tighter on guys who can't shoot the ball but I didn't think it was a lack of effort that cost us the game tonight." "Anytime you lose a player (averaging) 27 points, that's tough," said Orlando guard Rod Strickland, who scored 12 points off the bench. "That's our go-to guy, we feed off of him. But even saying that, we had opportunities. It's not like we came out here and laid an egg. We had opportunities but just didn't have enough."
