Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Nick Anderson scored 15 of his season-high 40 points in the final 7:47, helping the Orlando Magic put away the New Jersey Nets, 107-95.

Anderson, hitting 38 percent from the field coming into the contest, shot 14-of-19 and buried three 3-pointers. He also contributed nine rebounds and a season-best six assists as Orlando moved within one-half game of Miami for first place in the Eastern Conference.

"He (Anderson) was unbelievable. Today, he was letter perfect," said Magic coach Chuck Daly. "Early in the year, he was a little nervous going up against two or three big guys, but tonight they weren't as big. Tonight, he was given the wide-open shots."

The Magic (32-17), whose only remaining game is at Chicago on May 5, have followed a five-game losing streak by winning three in a row.

If Miami (31-15) falters in two of its last three games, Orlando can win the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference titles. The Magic won the season series with Central Division-leading Indiana (31-17) after Wednesday's 88-87 victory.

Stephon Marbury scored 36 points and battled Anderson in the final period, nearly helping the Nets rally for the win. A 3-pointer by Marbury, who also had nine assists, capped a quarter-opening 14-2 burst that pulled New Jersey within 83-79 with 8:02 to play.

Anderson answered with a pair of free throws just 15 seconds later and allowed Orlando to remain comfortably in front down the stretch. His driving layup with 2:33 to go helped seal the victory, creating a 99-87 cushion.

"Coach kept saying it and saying it, don't take this lightly because (Keith) Van Horn and Jayson Williams aren't here," Anderson said. "They've got some good shooters -- (Kendall) Gill, (Kerry) Kittles. Stephon Marbury, if he's not the best playmaker in the league, he's one of the best."

Van Horn and Williams are both out for the season with injuries for New Jersey (14-33), which is just two games better than Chicago for the worst record in the Eastern Conference.

Horace Grant collected a season-high 20 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Magic to an eye-popping 51-30 advantage on the glass. Grant also scored eight points in a 16-5 run to close the third period that allowed Orlando to build a 16-point cushion.

"Don't wake him up, don't wake Horace up right now," said Magic guard Penny Hardaway. "Let him sleep and don't wake him up. He's playing phenomenal, but don't tell him that. Just don't interview him, leave him alone."

Just when the lowly Nets seemed out of the game, Marbury brought them back in it by hitting consecutive 3-pointers to open the fourth.

"I just started going," Marbury said. "I don't look at the game and say I have to take over the game right now. When it comes, it comes. I took over when it was needed."

Marbury and Anderson later traded layups as Orlando held an 87-81 advantage. Marbury fed Kittles for a jumper, but rookie Matt Harpring answered with a driving layup to push the lead back to six with 6:34 remaining.

Then matters grew a bit heated as Nets forward Jamie Feick got tangled with Orlando's Bo Outlaw. The two exchanged words and a minor altercation ensued, with Fieck getting ejected and Outlaw simply receiving a technical foul.

"I was walking away from the play. Outlaw was holding on to me," Feick said. "I turn around. I push him in the shoulder to get him off me. He falls down, and his reaction is to come back and grab a hold of my neck. He goes to throw a punch, and I get thrown out of the game."

Anderson sank a foul shot and layup around Marbury's driving lay-in as Orlando grabbed a 92-85 lead with 5:28 to go. Just over a minute later, Anderson spread the wealth as he found Darrell Armstrong for a 3-pointer.

Marbury responded with a jumper, but Armstrong came back with a driving dunk and Anderson's driving layup made it 99-87. Anderson added a free throw, layup and 3-pointer in the final two minutes as the Nets got no closer than nine points.

"I think you saw what the NBA is all about tonight when you saw the caliber of players like Marbury and Nick Anderson and the display they put on offensively," Daly added.

Armstrong, whose move to the starting lineup coincided with the recent winning streak, nearly notched a triple-double with 10 points, nine assists and eight boards. He made just 4-of-12 from the field and new starting backcourt mate Hardaway hit just 3-of-12 for nine points.

But the impressive effort by Anderson and Grant's 10-of-14 shooting performance helped the Magic hit better than 52 percent (43-of-82). Outlaw was 6-of-7 from the floor for 12 points.

Mark Hendrickson scored a season-best 15 points, Gill added 14 and Kittles had 10 for the Nets, who were badly outscored in the paint, 56-24.

With the game tied 24-24 after one quarter, Anderson helped turn the contest in Orlando's favor by scoring 13 points in the second quarter. The Magic took a 52-47 lead at the half.

"Biggest thing was we milked him until he didn't have any more milk in him," Armstrong said of Anderson. "You got a guy going like that, Penny was saying give him the ball in the first half and from there, we were just giving him the ball the whole game, and he responded."
