Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Without one of their best defensive players, the Philadelphia 76ers could not stop Tracy McGrady.

McGrady recorded his first career triple-double and Mike Miller scored 25 points as the Orlando Magic rolled to a 105-87 rout of the 76ers.

Playing only the first three quarters, McGrady finished with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. Behind their superstar, the Magic built a commanding 82-60 lead entering the final period.

"I knew I was close at halftime," McGrady said. "Pass the ball, guys knocking down shots, rebound here and there, I knew I was close. They told me I needed two more rebounds, two more assists, that was the only thing I was concerned with. I didn't care about scoring no more. I was trying to get some more assists, some more rebounds and get myself my first career triple-double."

The 6-9 McGrady did most of his damage against the much slower Matt Harpring and also was matched against the smaller Eric Snow at times.

The Sixers also opted to run various double-teams at McGrady. But he made them pay by kicking the ball out to teammates, who went 12-of-26 from 3-point range. McGrady was 2-of-6 from the arc.

"When these guys knock down shots, it just makes my job a lot easier," McGrady said. "We were having fun out there."

"Until we learn how to defend the pick-and-roll ... defend a team that spreads it out ... they will keep doing what they're doing," Snow said. "They have done the same thing five straight times and we haven't done anything to change it on the court. That is why they have arguably the best shooting in the league, getting wide open shots. It doesn't make any sense."

Aaron McKie, one of the Sixers' best on-the-ball defenders, probably would have drawn the assignment on McGrady but he missed the contest with a left foot injury.

McKie did face McGrady last month in Philadelphia, but without much success. McGrady finished that contest with 26 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in Orlando's 102-91 victory. In that contest, McGrady also faced double teams and the Magic went 10-of-19 from the arc.

Allen Iverson scored 32 points for Philadelphia, which fell back to the .500 mark (27-27) and lost to the Magic for the fifth straight time.

"I don't think we had any effort as a team," Iverson said. "He (coach Larry Brown) felt mine and Eric's was good, but as a whole team concept it wasn't. It is a team game. The hustle just wasn't there."

Brown agreed with Iverson's sentiment.

"All our guys didn't match their effort," he said. "I grabbed Allen and Eric and told them I was proud of them, but there was a lot of guys I wasn't proud of in terms of effort tonight. I mean you're gonna have bad games, and we were shorthanded. But I don't think we had everyone competing and that's a disappointment."

In addition to playing without McKie, the Sixers also were without forward Derrick Coleman, who was sick. He missed the previous two games with a suspension.

Orlando took full advantage of the shorthanded Sixers, building a 38-24 advantage less than four minutes into the second quarter on a 21-footer by McGrady, who went 8-of-20 from the field.

Iverson, the NBA's leading scorer, tried to keep his team in it. The electrifying guard scored eight points in a 14-8 spurt that brought Philadelphia within 46-38 with 2:59 left in the half.

Iverson was basically all of the Sixers' offense, going 11-of-30 from the field and making 8-of-10 foul shots. The rest of his teammates were 30-of-54 from the floor.

While Orlando was bombing away from 3-point range, the Sixers went just 2-of-4 from the arc.

Despite getting back in it, the Sixers were done in right before the half when Orlando scored 10 of the final 12 points to open a 56-40 cushion. McGrady and Darrell Armstrong each drained a 3-pointer in the burst.

Armstrong finished with 15 points for the Magic, who shot 45.5 percent (40-of-88) and held a 48-40 rebounding advantage.

Miller, who scored 14 points in the half, was the main benficiary of McGrady's passes as he went 5-of-8 from beyond the arc. The reigning Rookie of Year also was active inside as he matched a career high with 11 rebounds.

"I just went to the boards," Miller said. "You've got to do it sometimes and tonight I did. Guys needed to help on the rebounds because Matt Harpring goes to the glass hard and that's who I was guarding. So I had to make sure I attacked them, make sure he didn't get as many."

The Magic controlled things the entire second half, leading by at least 12 points the entire way.

Orlando held a 22-point lead entering the final quarter and took its biggest lead of the contest at 91-61 on 3-pointer by Jud Buechler with 9:52 remaining.
