Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Pat Garrity and rookie Mike Miller scored 18 points apiece as the Orlando Magic overcame the absence of leading scorer Tracy McGrady to post a 97-87 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Garrity had 13 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Magic open a 95-78 lead on a jumper by Bo Outlaw with 3:51 remaining.

McGrady was handed a two-game suspension Wednesday for throwing the ball at the head of Sacramento's Bobby Jackson in overtime of Tuesday's 114-108 loss. The incident sparked a fight as McGrady and Jackson wrestled each other to the floor before both players were ejected.

"That was a hell of a win by our guys," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "We got in about 4 a.m. and lost Tracy McGrady at 5 o'clock this evening. Obviously, we would have liked to have known a little earlier for preparation sake."

Matt Harpring scored 19 points and rookie Chris Mihm added 15 for the Cavaliers, who have dropped six of their last seven home contests.

Rivers said he was surprised when he learned off the suspension before the game. McGrady also will miss Friday's home game against Vancouver.

"I found out about it coming here on the bus from the hotel," he said. "It really hurts us because Tracy is one of our best defenders. You can talk about his offense but he's good on defense."

Orlando snapped a two-game road losing streak and improved to 7-3 in its last 10 contests.

The Magic committed 20 turnovers but shot 52 percent (40-of-77) from the field. Darrell Armstrong contributed 15 points and Outlaw and Andrew DeClercq added 12 apiece.

"I asked every single guy before the game who's going to step up and everybody said we're all going to step up," Rivers said. "That's exactly what it was -- a team win."

"No one was going out to be a hero," Garrity added. "Everyone was just going to elevate his play. And maybe score three or four more points and grab two or three more rebounds than they normally do. "

Orlando also made 8-of-16 3-pointers while holding Cleveland to just 1-of-8 from beyond the arc. The Cavaliers only shot 42.5 percent (34-of-80) overall.

"This is one of those situations were they played at a higher pace than we did," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said. "All night long it seemed as if we didn't have that energy to take it to the next level. We had chances all night. This team comes in and shoots 52 percent against us. That's disappointing."

"We shut off the guys we were supposed to but we didn't rotate and Garrity kept tossing them in," Cleveland forward Chris Gatling added. "You can't have a guy come off the bench and get 18 points. That killed us. You have to go at him."

Cleveland led by as many as five early in the first quarter but the Magic shook off the slow start to open a 29-24 lead. Neither team led by more than six in the first half before Orlando settled for a 50-46 halftime advantage. Cleveland closed to 59-58 on Harpring's jumper with 7:27 left in the third quarter but never got the lead.

"In the first quarter, we were horrible defensively," Rivers said. "The Cavs shot 57 percent in the first quarter and I basically said, `Guys, without T-Mac, we're not an offensive basketball team and we're going to have to be a great defensive basketball team,'" Rivers said. "We shot 52 percent because of our defense in the third and fourth quarters."

The Magic used a 10-3 spurt to open a 69-59 lead on DeClercq's two foul shots with 4:43 left in the period. Cleveland cut the deficit to 72-67 entering the fourth but Orlando put it away by outscoring Cleveland, 23-11, over the first eight minutes of the quarter.

"The guys picked it up and played their tails off," Armstrong said.

Jim Jackson added 11 points off the bench and Wesley Person scored 10 for the Cavaliers, who stayed close by making 18-of-22 free throws. The Magic was just 9-of-15 from the line.
