Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Whether Grant Hill plays or not, the Orlando Magic have not looked good.

Hill rested his troublesome left ankle and the Magic were no match for the Portland Trail Blazers, who cruised to a 106-96 victory behind Rasheed Wallace's 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Hill broke the ankle late last season but played through the pain before giving into it in the playoffs. He had surgery during the offseason and played the first two games of the season but the problems persisted and sidelined him again.

After missing five weeks, the All-Star forward returned for this road trip. He scored 19 points in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday but just nine in a loss at Seattle on Tuesday, when he did not have a basket after the first quarter.

Without Hill, the Magic have become a one-man team. Swingman Tracy McGrady, who was signed with Hill during the offseason to give Orlando a 1-2 punch, has basically gone at it alone.

McGrady scored 39 points -- one off his season high -- but that was not nearly enough to overcome the deep and talented Trail Blazers, who have won four straight games.

"I think we're just not bringing it for 48 minutes every game and that's what we have to do," McGrady said. "We have to find some way to get ourselves going for 48 minutes."

"I don't think at times we play with enough fire, passion, hatred, whatever it has to be," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "So I think at times I have to fabricate it and that's not going to work if that's what I have to do."

Arvydas Sabonis had 18 points and eight boards for the Blazers, who never trailed and pounded the Magic on the glass, 51-33. All of that was too much for Rivers, who was ejected for arguing with 4:06 left in the second quarter.

"The bottom line is one of the things I told our guys is that you've got to have fire and to me, that's rebounding -- not reading (in the paper) that you don't have somebody or we might need help at the rebounding positions.

"If I was one of those guys that read that, I would rebound. I would knock down. I would grab. I would hold. I would do whatever I had to because that guaranteed them minutes. That's what I'm stressing right now."

Wallace scored eight points and Sabonis added six in the first quarter as Portland grabbed a 28-22 lead. John Amaechi's dunk still had Orlando within 42-33 midway through the second period before things fell apart.

"I am real pleased with the way we came out," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy, whose team beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. "Sometimes after a big win we have a tendency to have a letdown. We came out strong, played great defense and did a great job."

Bonzi Wells scored to start a 9-0 burst. Wallace had a pair of baskets around Greg Anthony's foul shot for Rivers' technical and Wells found Sabonis for a layup and a 51-33 lead with 3:01 to go in the first half.

Orlando trailed 57-41 at halftime and reduced the deficit by just one point entering the fourth period despite 13 points in the third quarter by McGrady.

A 3-pointer by rookie Mike Miller got the Magic within 94-85 with 4:14 to play. Wallace tipped in a miss, Magic forward Bo Outlaw missed two free throws and Dale Davis made a jumper to seal it at 98-85 with 3:20 left.

"Rasheed Wallace plays with passion and he just keeps getting better each year," Rivers said. "His post game has developed tremendously. People spend so much time criticizing Rasheed on areas he needs to improve where they should be talking about where he has improved."

Damon Stoudamire scored 15 points for Portland, which had six players in double figures and shot 52 percent (41-of-79) from the field.

Darrell Armstrong had 17 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for Orlando, which shot 44 percent (34-of-78).
