Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Steve Francis certainly made up for lost time. The foul-plagued Francis scored 15 of his 26 points in a spectacular fourth quarter as the Orlando Magic fought off the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-99, for their fourth win in five games. Francis picked up his fourth foul early in the second half and was limited to 22 minutes through the first three quarters. He returned at the start of the final period and won his duel with fellow All-Star Allen Iverson. Francis had a rare four-point play early in the period and did it all in the final 2 1/2 minutes as he was responsible for Orlando's last 11 points. After sinking a free throw, Francis found Grant Hill for a pair of corner jumpers that gave the Magic a 99-97 lead with 1:25 to go. "Whoever gets open, that's who I'm going to give the ball to," Francis said. On the next possession, Francis sank an 18-footer over Iverson with 48 seconds left. Iverson, who had 27 points and 10 assists, responded with a driving layup. But at the other end, Francis ran Iverson off a screen and buried another jumper for a 103-99 bulge with 23 seconds remaining. Iverson missed a 3-pointer and Francis sealed the win with two free throws. "I wanted to put Steve in a position to come off screens and be explosive as a scorer for us in that situation," Magic coach Johnny Davis said. "This was game we could have won," Iverson said. "We just didn't do the things we needed to do to get it done. We didn't get stops when we needed to and I had a lot to do with that on both ends." Francis made 7-of-15 shots and 10-of-11 free throws, adding five assists and five rebounds. He and rookie teammate Jameer Nelson helped hold Iverson to only 7-of-25 shooting. "Jameer did a great job," Francis said. "When I had foul trouble, he came in and fought with Allen. That was a good test and he was able to defend him pretty well." Iverson had trouble against Orlando's big men, who had seven blocked shots. "Those guys are big in there and they're a big team," he said. "We are the smallest team in the NBA, so every team we see is big to us." Hill scored 29 points and rookie Dwight Howard added 12 and 10 rebounds for the Magic, who avenged a 96-87 loss at Philadelphia on November 14. Orlando (8-4) moved into first place in the Southeast Division, percentage points ahead of Miami. "It doesn't mean a lot because it's early in the year," Hill said. "But just to have a winning record and to be playing good basketball, it's exciting coming off last year." Marc Jackson had 17 points and season high 11 boards and high-flying rookie Andre Iguodala scored a season-high 15 points for the Sixers, who have lost four straight road games. Iverson scored 17 points in the first half as Philadelphia grabbed a 56-49 lead. Three dunks by Iguodala pushed the margin to 61-51 before Orlando rallied behind Hill to pull into a 79-79 tie entering the final period. Iverson and Kyle Korver had 3-pointers to give the Sixers a 97-94 lead with 2:28 left before Francis took over.
