Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Steve Francis already is paying huge dividends for the Orlando Magic. Francis scored 19 points, including a follow shot with 2.7 seconds remaining, to lift the revamped Magic to a 90-89 victory over the New Orleans Hornets. Orlando has opened the season with a pair of one-point wins, and Francis - one of three players acquired in the trade that sent last season's scoring champion, Tracy McGrady, to Houston - has delivered the decisive points in both contests. "Steve's a very competitive player. He's about winning," Orlando coach Johnny Davis said. "In all our practices, he wants to win every drill. He's a winner. He's a guy that wants to compete every night, and we've seen that in both games we've played." On Wednesday, Francis converted a driving layup with two-tenths of a second remaining to give the Magic a 93-92 victory over Milwaukee. In this one, Baron Davis and David Wesley hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the Hornets ahead, 89-88, with 18 seconds to go. Pat Garrity missed a 3-pointer for Orlando with 13 seconds remaining, but Francis grabbed the rebound in the right corner and called timeout as he slipped with nine seconds to go. Moments later, he made a two-handed tip-in after rebounding missed 3-pointer by Garrity. "It wasn't a real good game for myself," said Francis, who committed six of his seven turnovers in the first half, was 2-of-8 from the floor in the second half and drew the primary defensive assignment on Davis, who scored 36 points. "But it was a good game for the team. The end result is what counts. It keeps people's jobs, especially mine." Last season, the Magic were 0-14 in November en route to the NBA's worst record (21-61) and did not earn their second victory until December 8 in their 21st game. "We're a team on the rise," said Francis, one of nine newcomers on the Magic roster. New Orleans missed a chance to answer Francis when Stacey Augmon, a Hornet the past three seasons, blocked Jamaal Magloire's drive to the basket as time expired. Hedo Turkoglu scored 21 points for the Magic, which squandered an 82-73 lead in the final six minutes. Eighteen-year-old forward Dwight Howard, the No. 1 overall selection in this year's NBA draft, grabbed 10 rebounds for the second consecutive game and led the Magic to a 48-36 advantage on the boards. It's the first time in franchise history that Orlando recorded consecutive one-point victories. "We did all the little things that translate into winning if you stay with it," said Davis, who earned his first career coaching victory in eight attempts against the Hornets. Baron Davis tied a career high with 15 field goals for the Hornets, who spent just 30 seconds with the lead and dropped to 0-2 for the first time in six seasons. Wesley and Magloire added 13 points apiece. "We played our hearts out and did what we could," said Baron Davis, who scored 22 points in the second half on 9-of-12 shooting. "Just the little mistakes away from being a good team." The Hornets shot 29 percent from the floor and trailed, 26-19, with seven minutes left in the first half. They 55 percent and scored 70 points thereafter. "We got better from game one to game two," said New Orleans coach Byron Scott, whose team lost by 15 at home to Dallas on Wednesday. "We just weren't able to close it out. We needed one rebound (to win), and we weren't able to get that."
