Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- If not for the Vancouver Grizzlies, the Orlando Magic would really be struggling.

Tariq Abdul-Wahad and Chucky Atkins scored 16 points apiece as the Magic snapped an eight-game losing streak with an 85-82 victory over the Grizzlies.

The Magic converted 24 Vancouver turnovers into 37 points and outscored the Grizzlies, 41-28, off the bench to earn their first victory since defeating Vancouver, 116-96, in Orlando on January 5.

"It's a gorgeous site," said Orlando guard Darrell Armstrong, referring to the final numbers on the scoreboard. "We've been struggling. Finally, we turned it around and one went our way."

Orlando coach Don Rivers, who kept the Magic (17-24) around .500 for the first two months of the season, hopes the victory will take some of the pressure off his players.

"I don't feel it," Rivers said, "but I know my players do, and I feel it for my players. You can deny that there's pressure and in the first three quarters there might not be, but by the time the fourth quarter rolls around, you start thinking about it."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Othella Harrington and rookie Michael Dickerson all had 16 points for Vancouver, which completed an 0-5 homestand and dropped to 1-6 all-time against the Magic.

"I don't think it's a lack of confidence," Vancouver coach Lionel Hollins said. "We got beat by good teams at home."

Trailing 71-60 after three quarters, the Grizzlies went down fighting, holding Orlando to only 14 points in the final period.

Vancouver scored the first eight points of the quarter, pulling within 71-68 on Grant Long's two free throws with 8:55 to play.

The Magic opened a 79-70 lead before Vancouver used a 10-2 spurt to pull within 81-80 on Abdur-Rahim's jumper with 52 seconds remaining.

But Vancouver's leading scorer continued his recent erratic play by making only 5-of-16 shots and turning the ball over six times. His frustration showed in the locker room after he was pressed on the issue by a persistent reporter.

"I just want to win," Abdur-Rahim said. "We're men. We have to deal with it. Nobody's gonna feel sorry for us. I'm done talking about it. It doesn't matter whether I score 30 points, make no turnovers and shoot 70 percent. A loss is still a loss."

With 34 seconds left, Harrington tied up Orlando's Chris Gatling underneath the Grizzlies' basket, forcing a jump ball.

Vancouver won the tip as Harrington got the ball to Doug West, but Gatling stripped West, who fed Armstrong. Pat Garrity took a pass from Armstrong in the right corner and drilled a 26-foooter to give Orlando an 84-80 lead with 13.5 seconds to go.

"It all started with the jump ball," Garrity said. "Darrell called the play, a simple pick-and-roll. I had a lot of time to get it off. It just feels great to get the win."

After Dickerson's driving laup pulled Vancouver within two with 4.9 seconds remaining, Armstrong hit 1-of-2 from the line to give the Magic an 85-82 lead without any additional time ticking off the clock.

The Grizzlies got the ball into the hands of Abdur-Rahim, but his 24-footer at the buzzer was blocked by Ben Wallace, who grabbed 11 rebounds for Orlando.

"We've struggling but because of our hard work, we're always in games," Gatling said. "We got down on ourselves. Hopefully, this will get us back to where we were."

Atkins and Gatling led Orlando's effort off the bench, with the latter contributing 14 points.

"Our bench was great," Rivers said. "Chucky and Gats did a great job. We have 12 starters and we have 12 role players."

Former Magic Dennis Scott scored a season-high 14 points for Vancouver, which shot only 38 percent (31-of-81). Orlando shot 44 percent (35-of-80) and was outrebounded, 49-39.
