Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- On the verge of extending their season-high winning streak to six games, the Washington Wizards returned to form.

All-Star forward Tracy McGrady scored nine of his 25 points in the fourth quarter as the Orlando Magic rallied for a 100-96 victory over the Wizards, who blew a 10-point lead and managed just five points in the final seven minutes.

Having won five in a row for the first time since December 1997, Washington looked more like a team challenging for a postseason spot than one holding down last place in the Atlantic Division.

Sparked by second-year center Calvin Booth's career-high 18 points and nine rebounds, the Wizards seemed headed for certain victory again before the crowd of 13,352 at the MCI Center saw its old team rear its ugly head.

"It's one of those games that you always remember this little play and that little play, and you try to figure out what happened," Washington coach Leonard Hamilton said.

Mitch Richmond's 20-footer with 7:02 to play gave the Wizards what appeared to be a comfortable 91-81 lead. But McGrady, the lone All-Star on the court and a starter for the Eastern Conference team, took control thereafter.

The 6-8, 210-pounder imposed his 21-year-old will on the game. McGrady hit a 16-footer, fed backcourt mate Darrell Armstrong for an easy layup, knocked down two free throws, a 3-pointer and added two more from the line as Orlando closed to 94-93 with 3:22 left.

"I just try to take the game in my hands, but that wasn't the case tonight," McGrady said. "Great defense is what got us back in the game because we know we can score. Finally, we broke them down. We got some stops and we went down back down the other end and just executed on offense."

After a 2 1/2-minute stretch of offensive futility by both teams, Pat Garrity put the Magic in front for good when he buried a 27-footer with 48 seconds left, making it 96-94.

A turnover by Richard Hamilton resulted in another easy basket for Armstrong as Orlando extended the margin to four points with 18 seconds remaining.

"We had the game won," Richard Hamilton said. "The last eight minutes we kind of went into a funk and we didn't even score. They really made a run and they were making shots and we weren't."

Richmond dunked on Washington's ensuing trip but Troy Hudson sank two free throws on the other end as the Magic held on for their seventh victory in 10 games.

"They never panicked, which was a great sign," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "We stayed in our sets and nobody tried to do it all at once. I think that is something we learned. We've lost three or four games like Wasington lost today."

Howard scored 17 points for the Wizards, whose only offensive production during the late-game collapse was a 3-pointer by Tyrone Nesby with 5:24 to play and Richmond's late dunk.

McGrady also had nine rebounds and six assists and Armstrong finished with 16 points for the Magic, who beat Washington, 97-86, in the season opener.

"We started losing, so we started to put on a press and we kept the press on," Armstrong said. "They kind of got back on their heels and we were the aggressive team out there and we got the win."

The third quarter was Booth's personal showcase and appeared to put the Wizards on the road to victory. The 6-11 pivotman, a crowd favorite in Washington and among his teammates, hit two jumpers before slamming home a rebound to forge a 60-60 tie with 5:04 remaining in the period.

He added another slam, had one of his career-high five blocks and drilled a 16-footer and a free throw as Washington closed the third quarter with a 9-0 run to take a 74-66 lead entering the final 12 minutes.

Booth accepted warm congratulations from his teammates and a rousing ovation from the crowd after the third-quarter buzzer and opened the fourth quarter with two free throws before the Wizards fell apart.

"I just kind of got in the groove a little bit," Booth said. "The first time I've ever been able to get in a groove like that since being an NBA player and it felt good. I think we got caught standing up a bit (in the fourth quarter)."

Rookie Mike Miller scored 12 points and Garrity added 10 off the bench for the Magic, who shot 44 percent (35-of-79) and were outrebounded, 48-41.

Chris Whitney scored 15 points, Hamilton added 12 and Nesby 10 for Washington, which shot 41 percent (35-of-85) and scored 19 points off turnovers.
