Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Reserve Pat Garrity scored 13 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter, including a clutch jumper in the final minute, as the injury-depleted Orlando Magic edged the Utah Jazz, 98-90.

With the Magic clinging to an 87-86 lead, Garrity drilled a 3-pointer with 43 seconds left, his third shot from the arc in the final period. Garrity was 6-of-10, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range.

"We ran a side pick-and-roll with the shot clock going down," Garrity said. "The guy guarding me had to guard Darrell (Armstrong), because I got a pretty good pick on his man. He just looped it back to me and I got a good look at it."

After Karl Malone missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 33 seconds left, Armstrong hit a pair of free throws to give Orlando a 92-86 lead with 30 seconds to go.

Utah's John Crotty was called for a charge and Armstrong made two more from the line with 27 seconds left and hit another pair with six seconds to go to cap the scoring.

Orlando won despite playing without All-Stars Grant Hill and Tracy McGrady. Hill had season-ending surgery on his his left ankle Wednesday morning and will be in a cast for the next month. He played in just 14 games after missing all but four last season with ankle problems.

McGrady left in the first quarter of the team's loss to Seattle on Sunday with a strained lower back. He was examined Wednesday at the Atlanta Back Clinic and will remain there through the weekend to receive therapy. He will miss Friday's home game vs. Washington and Saturday's game at Dallas.

Armstrong had 24 points and nine assists for the Magic. Mike Miller added 21 points and Pat Ewing 11 and six rebounds.

"We did it as a team," Armstrong said. "What better way to play without your two stars and win the game? You know Utah is going to execute on offense and play hard on defense, and we matched their execution down the stretch."

"Our energy had to be high tonight," Miller said. "When you are missing Grant and Tracy both, you have to have energy. That is the only way you are going to win. Our defense was the key tonight. Whenever we hold teams to under 90, we play well."

Malone had 28 points and nine rebounds and Donyell Marshall added 24 and a season-high 20 for Utah, which gave up a franchise-low 56 points in Tuesday's 39-point blowout of Miami.

"We had opportunities to win, again," Malone said. "If we didn't get on the same page on a lot of plays, problems will start."

"Being in a situation where you are used to playing with Tracy and Grant and you're around those guys so much that you end up standing around," Marshall said. "Whereas tonight, they knew that they didn't have them, they played team basketball, they came out and played team defense, swarmed the ball and get good, open shot."

Orlando snapped a three-game skid against Utah and defeated the Jazz for just the second time in 10 games. The Magic won their fourth straight home contest, which was their first game back from a 1-5 road trip.

"It is a great win for us, because our psyche was a little fragile after the trip," Garrity said. "It is a tremendous boost of confidence and shows what we can do if we commit to playing defense for 48 minutes and play as a team."

The Magic made 11-of-12 free throws in the fourth quarter after going 4-of-10 through three periods. Utah made 27-of-32 from the line. But Orlando had a big edge from 3-point range, making 9-of-18 to Utah's 1-of-7.

"That's what they get paid to do," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "They don't get paind to go lay down. Those are the toughest games to play because they're not expected to play that well, and they play a lot more free and easy."

"That was a great character win for our basketball team," Rivers said. "It was only one win, but for our guys and the stuff that we have been through these past few days, you could not ask for anything more."
