GAME RECAP

Derek Strong scored 10 of his 21 points in the decisive second quarter and the Orlando Magic cruised to their fifth straight win without Penny Hardaway, 108-94 over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Strong, a former 76ers draft pick, led a balanced attack as the Orlando front line took advantage of the absence of Philadelphia forward Derrick Coleman. Strong grabbed 13 rebounds, Horace Grant added 20 points and nine rebounds, Rony Seikaly had 17 and nine and Bo Outlaw contributed 11 and 10.

The Magic shot a blistering 71 percent (12-of-17) from the field in the second quarter while holding the Sixers to 29 percent (7-of-24), turning a five-point edge into a 62-41 halftime lead.

"We are beginning to trust each other and we're playing unselfishly," Orlando coach Chuck Daly said. "We really distributed the ball well and did not get deep into the shot clock. There is not anything really special that we did. We just worked hard and came in with a great attitude. We spent more time on shooting this week and I really think that helped us."

Hardaway, Orlando's All-Star guard, missed his fifth consecutive game with tendinitis in his left knee. He again was not missed as the Magic posted a fourth straight road win for the first time since winning six in a row from March 15th-April 3rd, 1996. Prior to this season, the Magic had been 9-19 without Hardaway.

"Obviously, whenever you have one of your starters down, the whole team has got to rally and step up," Seikaly said. "Once he gets back, hopefully we'll be a much better basketball team."

"It is amazing that we can still win without Penny," said guard Mark Price, who had eight points and eight assists. "But it shows how we can step it up and pick up some slack."

Coleman, Philadelphia's leading rebounder and third-best scorer, has an irregular heartbeat and will miss a minimum of two weeks. The 76ers have dropped 16 of their last 19 against the Magic.

"We knew losing Derrick was big, but it was not an excuse for how we played," said Philadelphia guard Allen Iverson, who had 14 points and 12 assists. "We have to accept the fact that Derrick is not here now."

Jerry Stackhouse scored 16 points and rookie Tim Thomas added 14 for the Sixers, who had won three of their last four games.

Strong scored seven points and Grant six as Orlando opened a 30-25 lead after one quarter. Darrell Armstrong and Gerald Wilkins scored four points apiece in an 11-2 burst that started the second period. Strong's 16-foot jumper capped the run and gave the Magic a 41-27 lead with 8:50 left in the period.

A driving layup by Thomas cut the deficit to 47-35 before another 16-footer by Strong triggered a 10-2 spurt. A layup by Armstrong and four points by Nick Anderson preceded a pair of foul shots by Seikaly that made it 57-37 with 2:31 to go.

"Some teams ease up when they play an opponent like Philly, but we didn't," said Anderson, who scored eight points. "Everybody contributed and we spread the wealth around. We have a lot of depth and can go all the way down to the 12th man."

Strong's layup made it 62-41 at halftime. In the first half, Orlando shot 67 percent, held Philadelphia to under 40 percent and owned a 25-17 edge on the boards.

"Defensively, we were real soft, and on top of that, they hit every shot," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We were also really impatient on offense. We took a lot of outside shots. We made it real easy for them. They only had to play defense for a few seconds every time down. At least half of our possessions were one pass or less. You can't get offensive rebounds or high-percentage shots playing like that."

A basket by Stackhouse made it 71-52 with 6:32 left in the third quarter before Seikaly scored eight points in a 14-3 run that gave Orlando its largest lead at 85-55 with 1:19 to go in the period. Philadelphia got no closer than the final margin.

"We just tried to work as hard as we can and when you work hard, good things happen," Seikaly said. "The ball was bouncing our way. We played good defense. We've really had the whole package."
