Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Reserves Chucky Atkins and Pat Garrity combined for 28 points in the fourth quarter as the Orlando Magic started and finished strong in a 107-102 victory over the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers.

Atkins, a rookie, scored 15 points and Garrity totaled 13 in the final period, when the Magic erased a seven-point deficit. The win was their sixth in eight games after a 1-13 stretch.

Asked if it was the best win of the season, Magic coach Doc Rivers said, "I think the best win was the last game against New York, to be honest. This was the best back-to-back wins for us, no doubt."

Orlando started the fourth with an 18-6 run to open an 87-79 lead. Atkins and Garrity totaled 13 points in the spurt, with Garrity capping it on a 3-pointer with 8:03 left.

"They played with a lot of energy and when you do that, you're going to win a lot of ballgames," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "We didn't match their statistics in the beginning and we didn't match them in the fourth quarter."

The Magic's bench, which played most of the fourth quarter, outscored Indiana's, 58-34, with Garrity totaling 18 points, Atkins 17 and Monty Williams 12. The Pacers' reserves had outscored opponents in 35 of its first 45 games.

"They did a great job," Pacers guard Mark Jackson said of Orlando's bench. "It makes it more difficult when they are knocking down those shots. They won the game for them."

Jalen Rose had 25 points and seven rebounds for Indiana, which rallied from a 27-10 first-quarter deficit, one night after extending its winning streak to four games with a physical home triumph over the Sacramento Kings.

"We didn't come to play that first quarter and we were throwing the ball away," Bird said. "Our guys were hesitating to shoot and they got off to a good start. We did make our comeback and we had the game pretty well under control until we got selfish again."

The Magic were able to wear down the Pacers with their bench. Garrity started the fourth with a layup and, after an offensive goaltending call on Chris Mullin, Atkins tied it at 73-73 with a jumper.

Indiana went ahead on Austin Croshere's 10-footer, but Atkins and Williams sandwiched three-point plays around reserve forward Michael Doleac's jumper for an 81-75 lead.

The Pacers got within 81-78 on a three-point play by Derrick McKey, but they would get no closer.

After a pair of empty possessions, Atkins and Garrity drilled 3-pointers around a free throw by Indiana's Dale Davis. Garrity's first of three 3-pointers in the quarter capped the 18-6 run.

It was at least a two-possession game over the final 8 1/2 minutes.

"You have to give Orlando credit," Pacers guard Travis Best said. "They knocked down shots late in the game when they had to. They kept us within arms distance."

Backing up leading scorer and point guard Darrell Armstrong, Atkins chipped in five rebounds and seven assists. His 17 points were more than eight above his season average.

"I think everyone's known about him for a while," Garrity said. "It's just, he was huge, especially in the fourth quarter. But his quickness, it's so hard to stop him when he plays the pick-and-rolls."

Garrity, who scored 10 points more than his average, shot 6-of-12 from the field, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range. Orlando was 5-of-11 behind the arc as a team.

John Amaechi scored 18 of his season-high 19 points in the first half for the Magic, who shot 46 percent from the field (37-of-80).

The Pacers outrebounded Orlando, 49-43, but committed 23 turnovers and lost their fifth straight road game.

Indiana All-Star Reggie Miller had his third straight sup-par game, totaling 13 points on 3-of-8 shooting in 40 minutes. The Pacers shot 45.5 percent (35-of-77), going just 2-of-15 from 3-point range.

"Reggie is our go-to player," Croshere said. "He is going to get the shots at the end of the game, regardless. I will take him on any given night."

All-Star forward Dale Davis totaled 11 points and 14 rebounds while wearing a protective mask for Indiana. He broke his nose against the Kings on Friday night.

Ron Mercer made his first start for Orlando since being acquired from Denver and scored eight points in 30 minutes after receiving an ovation from the crowd.

"It made me want to go out and play even harder," he said. "I saw fans before I came into the gym, and then they gave me a warm welcome."
