Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- The Orlando Magic played all last season without a star, so facing the Atlanta Hawks with Tracy McGrady joining Grant Hill on the bench in street clothes was not about to bother them.

Rookie Mike Miller, who didn't know until shortly before game time that he would be starting for McGrady, scored 19 of his 23 points in the first half as the Magic built a 22-point lead on the way to a 114-92 victory over the lifeless Hawks.

"You've got to react like you always do," said Miller, a 6-8 swingman out of Florida. "It was a chance to play and you've got to be ready to go. It definitely gives you more opportunity to score.

"Darrell (guard Darrell Armstrong) told me when we came out tonight that you've got to be ready to score."

Even with McGrady on the bench with an infected left hand, the Magic were able to snap their losing streak at five games with what turned out to be a laugher.

Troy Hudson took advantage of the increased playing time gained with McGrady out to score 21 points, one short of his career high.

It was the second time this season the Magic beat the Hawks without McGrady and Hill. The first was a 107-104 victory at Atlanta, where Hill was out with his injured ankle and McGrady was serving a one-game suspension for fighting with Philadelphia 76ers guard Eric Snow in Orlando's previous game.

Jason Terry scored 21 points for the Hawks, who are without leading scorer Jim Jackson. The 6-6 guard is on the injured list with a sprained right knee.

"It is very disappointing the way we have started the season," said Hawks center Dikembe Mutombo, who had just nine points and seven rebounds. "We need to try to build the chemistry all around."

Last season, the Magic were 41-41 and were eliminated from the playoffs in the penultimate game of the season despite using a roster of journeymen and career backup players.

That was the character of the team that took the floor tonight but the group wasted little time with the Hawks.

The Magic took the lead for good with a 10-0 run late in the first quarter. Terry tied the score, 12-12, with an 18-footer with 6:27 to go in the period but the Magic shut down the Hawks over the next two minutes.

Armstrong drilled a 3-pointer, Michael Doleac hit a pair of free throws, Bo Outlow lofted in a hook and Miller connected from 3-point range to give Orlando a 22-12 lead with 4:29 to go.

Atlanta crept within 26-20 on a 15-footer by Alan Henderson with 2:47 left, but Miller hit a 3-pointer and Hudson converted a three-point play in a 6-1 surge that put Orlando up 32-21 with 1:57 to go.

The Hawks got no closer than nine points in the second quarter and the Magic built their lead to 66-44 when Outlaw, who had hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to end the first quarter, scored on a layup with 1.2 seconds left in the half.

"You're at home, and even though Tracy wasn't there, and Grant hasn't been here or Dee Brown, I thought the guys were really focused coming out," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "They're aware that at home we have to win the basketball game. For a while, that's the best I've thought we executed offensively all season -- the movement was terrific."

Miller, who hit 4-of-5 from the field in the second quarter, scored nine points in the 21-10 run over the last 7:36 of the first half that gave the Magic their 22-point halftime bulge.

"What I like about Mike Miller is that he was aggressive offensively," Rivers said. "He was not looking to be a playmaker, he was looking to be a scorer. That's what we are trying to get him to do every night."

The lead ballooned to 29 points in the third quarter and the Hawks never threatened thereafter.

"This might have been our worst loss of the year," Henderson said. "The others have been close and competitive. This one just got out of hand."

The Magic had lost seven of their last eight games, including Friday's 103-98 overtime setback at Boston. They are still without Hill, who has been limited to two games this season because of an ankle injury.
