Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Darrell Armstrong nearly had a quadruple-double. He had 18 points, 10 assists, seven rebounds and six stitches.

Armstrong returned from a shot to the chin to score 11 points in the last six minutes and rally the Orlando Magic to a 105-101 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Armstrong, who received six stitches after taking a blow to the mouth in Sunday's win over New York, took a half-dozen more following a third-quarter shot from Cleveland guard Andre Miller.

"This can't be a habit. It can't be like that," Armstrong said. "Now if I get another six the next game, that's the devil's number right there. I don't need that. That may mean I might be the devil."

Armstrong sprinted back to the bench from the locker room early in the fourth quarter, which began with the Magic trailing, 80-69.

"Troy Hudson told me I got hit by Andre Miller, but all I remember is backpedaling downcourt and feeling under my chin and seeing a lot of blood on my hand," Armstrong said. "I tried to wipe it off so the ref wouldn't see it. I finished the quarter and the trainer and I fought like little brother and big brother about my getting stitches. I went in and finally got it done."

"Darrell don't like stitches," teammate Tracy McGrady said. "When he opened it up again, I looked at it and said, `Oooh.' It was like he was bleeding on everybody."

The Cavaliers still held a 94-84 lead after a tough jumper by Jumaine Jones with 6:01 remaining before Armstrong came alive.

He made a 3-pointer to trigger an 18-3 run that saw him make big plays on both ends.

"When I came back, I knew we were kind of struggling, but I knew my energy could help us," Armstrong said. "When I got my stitches, which I may get all the time now, I finally started hitting some shots."

Armstrong added two more 3-pointers and two free throws, a lob pass that led to an easy hoop for Tracy McGrady and a steal.

McGrady had 35 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists for the Magic (41-33), who have won 13 of their last 14 home games and solidified their hold on fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Orlando moved two games in front of Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Charlotte.

Improving Ricky Davis and Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 21 points each for the Cavs, who managed just two baskets in the final six minutes. Cleveland has lost four straight visits to Orlando.

"Darrell Armstrong played well and hit some big shots when they needed them," Miller said.

After Armstrong's first 3-pointer, McGrady made a free throw and put home a lob pass from Armstrong to cut the deficit to 94-90 with 4:38 to play. Ilgauskas hit a jumper, but Armstrong made two free throws, a steal and a 3-pointer to make it 96-95 with 3:33 to go.

"When I found Tracy McGrady on that pass and he dunked it and we got it down to four, I knew it was time to go ahead and finish them off," Armstrong said.

"He's a warrior," McGrady said. "It's going to take a whole lot to take that guy down. He came in and hit big shots. He was kind of struggling with his jumper and he told me, `I'm gonna get you one.' And he got me a big one."

Tyrone Hill made a free throw before McGrady scored to tie the game. Pat Garrity's two free throws gave Orlando the lead for good with 2:21 left before Armstrong hit a 3-pointer as he was fouled by Andre Miller. He missed the free throw, leaving the Magic with a 102-97 lead with 1:46 remaining. Garrity sealed it with two from the line with 19 seconds to play.

Orlando swingman Mike Miller re-injured his left ankle in the second quarter and did not return. The 2001 NBA Rookie of the Year sprained the ankle a month ago and missed three weeks. X-rays were negative and Miller is listed as day to day.

Garrity had 14 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for the Magic, who shot 41 percent (38-of-92) from the field, including 10-of-24 from the arc.

Wesley Person scored 15 points and Lamond Murray added 14 and 10 rebounds for the Cavs, who shot 48 percent (38-of-79) but made just 2-of-11 from 3-point range.

McGrady scored 22 points in the first half, but Cleveland opened a 52-46 lead. He had eight more in the third quarter but again did not get much help as the Cavs widened their advantage.

"We played a little Mickey Mouse zone that held them down for a while," Cavs coach John Lucas said.
