Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Tracy McGrady must have been saving his only basket of the second half for when his team needed it.

McGrady scored just 12 points but sank his only bucket of the second half with 1.8 seconds remaining to lift the Orlando Magic to an 85-83 victory over the Detroit Pistons, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

A two-time All-Star, McGrady made just 4-of-11 shots in the first half and saw few minutes in the third quarter after picking up his fourth foul less than a minute into the second half.

He was held scoreless after halftime and made two crucial turnovers down the stretch before Orlando put the ball in his hands for the final shot.

"Those guys worked too hard to put us in that position for me to blow the game," McGrady said of his teammates. "I had to make something happen. I had to let everything in the past go and make something happen with that shot."

Detroit's Chucky Atkins sank two free throws with 45 seconds left to tie it before knocking the ball away from Darrell Armstrong. Jerry Stackhouse recovered and passed to Atkins, who drove to the other end but lost control of his dribble.

Armstrong came up with the ball and the Magic called timeout with 13 seconds left, giving them the chance to set up a play for McGrady.

"I asked Tracy if he wanted the ball and he said `Absolutely,'" Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "I asked him if he was sure and he said `Absolutely, give me the ball.' I'm no dummy. I gave him the ball."

The 6-9 swingman took the inbounds pass at mid-court, walked to the top of the key and used a screen from guard Troy Hudson to free himself from Ben Wallace. He pulled up and nailed the jumper from just inside 3-point line.

"He made a tough shot," Rivers said. "It was a well-defended play, but a great player made a better shot. Give Ben Wallace credit. When you look at him guarding Tracy and making him extend to the utmost on that shot, you have to give Ben a lot of credit."

"Anytime you hit a game-winning shot it feels real good," said McGrady. "It's a big win for us. Against a hot Detroit team, it was definitely a big win for us."

Stackhouse freed himself on a screen for the final shot, but Andrew DeClerq chased him to the corner and forced him into a bad 3-pointer as time expired.

"I saw out of the corner of my eye and said, `Oh no, he's open, I have to go help,'" DeClerq said. "You know he's going to get the ball in that situation. You just have to make it as difficult for him as possible."

Mike Miller scored 18 points and DeClercq added season highs of 12 points and eight rebounds for the Magic. McGrady collected nine rebounds as Orlando won for the fourth time in six games.

Armstrong chipped in 12 points and Hudson 11 of the bench for the Magic, who won despite shooting 37 percent (31-of-83) and committing 17 turnovers.

"We had every reason to not win that basketball game," Rivers said. "When a team has 16 turnovers, shoots 37 percent and wins a basketball game on the road, that's all guts."

The Pistons shot a very respectable 46 percent (34-of-74) but committed 24 turnovers, leading to 27 points for the Magic.

"You can't win in this league with 24 turnovers for 27 points," Detroit coach Rick Carlisle said. "You can point to events at the end of the game, them making the shot, us missing the last shot, but it really isn't that. It's the culmination of things that happened during the game."

"We lost because we just didn't take care of the ball," Pistons forward Clifford Robinson said. "We're a much beter ballhandling team than that. They tried to deny all of our passes and we just didn't make good decisions."

Stackhouse finished with 18 points and seven assists and Corliss Williamson added 15 points off the bench. Jon Barry scored 13 points, Robinson chipped in 11 and Michael Curry 10 for Detroit.
