Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Whether Michael Jordan is around or not, Tracy McGrady loves playing against the Washington Wizards.

McGrady scored a career-high 50 points, including the go-ahead basket with 12 seconds to play, as the Orlando Magic snapped a four-game losing streak with a 99-96 victory over the Jordan-less Wizards.

McGrady made 18-of-29 shots and 10-of-15 free throws as he passed his previous career high of 49, set April 13, 2001 against the Wizards.

When Jordan announced his comeback, McGrady said he had circled his first game against Washington on the calendar. On December 5, he thoroughly outplayed Jordan in a 102-74 road victory.

Jordan wasn't around for this one, missing his sixth straight game following knee surgery. But McGrady still found the motivation to excel, especially down the stretch.

After a free throw by Courtney Alexander gave Washington a 96-96 tie with 33 seconds to go, McGrady took the inbounds pass and milked the clock with a dribble. He drove right, got a pick and elevated over Alexander for a hanging eight-footer that gave Orlando the lead.

Tyronn Lue missed a lane jumper and McGrady pulled down his 10th rebound before being fouled with eight-tenths of a second left. He split the free throws, but Chris Whitney's potential tying 3-pointer was short at the buzzer.
