Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Stuck in a shooting rut and his team mired in a three-game losing streak, Tracy McGrady did what superstars are supposed to do.

McGrady scored 23 of his 27 points in the second half, lifting the Orlando Magic to a 101-91 victory over the reeling Vancouver Grizzlies.

"I just have that confidence at this stage," said McGrady, who added eight rebounds and eight assists. "I'm just taking my time, being patient, let the game come to me and not rush anything."

McGrady was coming off a 39-point game in a loss at Portland on Friday but stumbled in the first half, missing all four of his shots. However, he was 9-of-15 after halftime, when he took over the game.

The 6-8 swingman signed a seven-year, $93 million contract in the offseason, which many said was too much for a 21-year-old three-year veteran who had yet to collect an All-Star berth or a playoff series win.

But the Magic argued they were paying McGrady based on what he would do and so far they have not been disappointed. He is averaging 25.5 points per game, good for seventh in the NBA.

As it has been for much of the season, Orlando again was without injured superstar forward Grant Hill. His absence has cost the Magic in the standings but has accelerated McGrady's maturation into a prime-time player who can take over games.

"It's definitely one of our key losses. It takes away 25 points per game," McGrady said. "With him out, it puts a lot more pressure on me to go out and step up my game. We can't wait on Grant. We just have to go out and play."

"We just have to keep building," Magic coach Doc Rivers added. "We hope he (Hill) comes back soon. It's been difficult for us because we just have to play this waiting game. One day, we think he's coming and one day, he's not."

John Amaechi scored 18 points for Orlando, which shot 52 percent (42-of-81) from the field and salvaged the finale of a four-game trip. The Magic improved to 8-1 all-time vs. the Grizzlies.

"This is a big win for us," McGrady said. "We were 0-3 and we've got a five- or six-hour plane ride ahead of us, so we definitely didn't want to get this loss and have our heads down on the plane."

Mike Bibby scored 19 points for the Grizzlies, who had all five starters in double figures but suffered their sixth consecutive loss. Vancouver went scoreless in the last two minutes.

"We should be at a point where we don't settle for the consolation. We want the prize," Vancouver forward Grant Long said. "We're playing well and we're playing hard, but if you don't win, you have nothing to show for it.

"We're playing good down to the wire, but when we need a basket, we fold."

McGrady's first basket was a 17-footer that gave Orlando a 58-51 lead with 9:04 left in the third quarter. The Grizzlies battled back to tie it before Pat Garrity's 23-pointer gave the Magic the lead for good at 67-64 with 4:18 to go.

That's when McGrady came alive. He scored Orlando's next 11 points, primarily on jump shots, to keep the Grizzlies at bay. Jumpers by Darrell Armstrong and McGrady closed the period and gave the Magic an 82-74 bulge.

"He's a great player," Grizzlies guard Michael Dickerson said. "He just started making shots when he needed it."

Armstrong's 3-pointer and McGrady's free throw opened the fourth quarter and gave Orlando its largest lead at 86-74 with 9:47 to go.

Vancouver closed to 95-91 on a jumper by Shareef Abdur-Rahim with 2:05 left but did not score again. Garrity made a runner, McGrady sank a turnaround jumper and Bo Outlaw hit a layup to close the scoring.

Armstrong had 16 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and Michael Doleac also scored 16 points for the Magic.

"I feel Darrell's a leader on this team," McGrady said. "He's the head and he's the guy that motivates us. He's the heart."

"I am the team leader, but McGrady is definitely the leader of scoring on this team," Armstrong said. "We just work good together."

Othella Harrington scored 15 points and Abdur-Rahim added 12 and 14 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who shot 40 percent (31-of-77).

Despite McGrady's poor first half, the Magic held a 52-49 lead as Amaechi scored 16 points.

"Double-teams were coming and I was finding the open man," said McGrady. "The double-team went away in the third and that's when I got going. I told my teammates just keep shooting and I will find you."
