Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- A trip to the Sunshine State provided the New Jersey Nets with a breath of fresh air.

Lucious Harris hit a pair of long jumpers down the stretch and Kendall Gill came up with a critical block with 31 seconds left as the Nets posted a 100-94 triumph over the slumping Orlando Magic.

The win came on the heels of the Nets' surprising 90-89 triumph in Miami on Saturday and gave New Jersey consecutive road victories for the first time this season.

"This is certainly a notch on the belt but we have some more road trips to take," Nets coach Don Casey said. "We have to Philly and New York. So, I am going to wait until the All-Star break before I make my decisions. This is certainly a step in the right direction."

New Jersey became just the second team this season to sweep the two-game Florida trip, joining Milwaukee. The successful trek began after an embarrassing 101-91 home loss to Vancouver on Friday.

"We felt coming in that we matched up well against Orlando," Van Horn said. "All we needed to do was play our style of aggressive ball and take advantage of our opportunities and we did that in the second half."

"We are just a much better team than in the beginning of the season right now," Gill said. "We have a lot of confidence in what we we're doing right now and a lot has to do with everybody being on the same page and people being healthy."

Stephon Marbury scored 22 points before fouling out late in the contest and Keith Van Horn added 20, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots. Van Horn sandwiched a key 3-pointer between Harris' baskets as the Nets used a 10-3 burst to pull away.

Darrell Armstrong scored 29 points and Bo Outlaw contributed a season-high 16 and 10 rebounds for the Magic, who have lost eight of their last nine games.

"I thought for the first half we kind of got back to playing the way we were playing earlier this year," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "And then in the third quarter we let down. I thought we lost some of the fire we had in the first half, although my guys never quit fighting."

The Nets shot just 40 percent (37-of-93) from the field and committed 20 turnovers but made 11-of-24 3-pointers and held a 53-41 advantage on the boards.

Orlando shot just 41 percent (35-of-85) from the field, made 3-of-9 3-pointers and committed 19 turnovers.

The Nets trailed 55-49 entering the third quarter but opened with a 12-2 burst. Van Horn capped the run with a 3-pointer with 9:09 to go. They pushed the lead to 75-65 with 2:26 left on a three-point play by Harris and took a 10-point lead into the final quarter.

The Nets led 86-73 with less than nine minutes to go before the Magic began chipping away. Orlando was within 88-84 with 5:19 to play following a layup by Ben Wallace but the Nets pulled away behind Harris and Van Horn.

Van Horn pushed the lead to eight with a 3-pointer and Orlando rookie Chucky Atkins missed two free throws. Harris buried a 3-pointer for a 98-87 lead with 2:30 remaining.

Orlando scored the next seven points to draw within four with 44 seconds to go and had a chance to get closer but Gill blocked Monty Williams' layup and added a free throw with 6.9 seconds left.

"I thought we played good in the first half," Atkins said. "The second half, we've just got to play a lot better, especially myself. I'm an important part of this team and tonight I played like trash."

"It's another loss, another loss," Outlaw said.

Armstrong scored 15 points and Wallace 10 as Orlando held a 55-49 edge at the half.
