Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- In the fourth quarter, Tracy McGrady did it all and Allen Iverson did next to nothing. McGrady scored eight of his 31 points in the final period - when Iverson went without a basket - as the Orlando Magic pulled away for a season-opening 95-88 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. McGrady supplanted Iverson on the All-NBA Team last season, when he single-handedly carried the Magic to the playoffs. Finally paired with Grant Hill, who missed most of the last two seasons with an ankle injury, some expect the 23-year-old star to be even better. Attacking man-to-man defense and exploiting double-teams, McGrady made his teammates look terrific. Among them was unheralded rookie forward Pat Burke, who spent the last four seasons in Greece. "I just saw that the game wasn't going the way that I wanted it to go," McGrady said. "It wasn't going in the direction I wanted it to go. I was kind of sitting back, trying to get other guys involved, but I felt it wasn't working. That's when I had to take over and make things happen. That's when the big-time players step up." Meanwhile, Iverson went ice cold. After making four of his first seven shots, the reigning scoring champion missed 15 of his last 18, including his final eight. Over the last 16 minutes, he managed only a pair of meaningless free throws. "I had great looks, I had a lot of wide-open shots, shots that I can make with my eyes closed," said Iverson, who took an elbow to the chin that drew blood in the first quarter. "They just did not fall." "I tried to put pressure on him and make him fake, fake, fake," said Magic guard Darrell Armstrong, who drew the defensive assignment on Iverson. "Then I tried to make him put the ball on the floor and cut off his first step, cut off his dribble and make him do something else." Hill looked sharp in his return. He flashed some of the explosiveness he had prior to his injury and finished with 18 points, six rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes. "Being cautious, I'm all for that," Hill said. "The competitor (in me) wants to play more, and of course, I'm out there and I'm feeling good and I'm going to fight for more minutes. The good thing is that we played well." "He showed the old Grant Hill," McGrady said. "I don't know anybody that does it better in the open court." Burke finished with 12 points for Orlando, which has won seven of the last eight meetings with Philadelphia. The Magic improved to 8-6 in season openers, while Philadelphia fell to 36-18. Orlando never trailed in the fourth quarter. After a layup by Aaron McKie pulled Philadelphia within 79-78, McGrady made a layup and winger jumper for an 83-78 lead with 6:11 to go. McGrady drove and drew the defense before setting up a dunk by Burke, who added two free throws to make it 87-80 with 4 1/2 minutes left. From under the basket, McGrady passed out of a double-team to find Burke for a jumper, then made a turnaround jumper from the post to seal it at 93-82 with 1:57 to play. "I saw a lot of people missing their shots, so I thought if I go out there and miss, it's just doing the same thing," Burke said. "So I go out there and I'm confident." McGrady made 13-of-24 shots and handed out five assists. Mike Miller added 10 points for the Magic, who lost aging forward Horace Grant to a knee injury in the second quarter that will sideline him for two weeks. McKie had 19 points, five assists and five steals for Philadelphia, which shot less than 40 percent (31-of-78). Sixers newcomers Keith Van Horn and Todd MacCulloch played well. Both acquired from New Jersey for center Dikembe Mutombo, Van Horn had 19 points and 10 rebounds and MacCulloch scored 13 points in 16 minutes. Orlando often used a small lineup to force 76ers coach Larry Brown to take the slow MacCulloch off the court. "We have a lot of new people out there, so we've got to hold the fort as long as we can," said Brown, whose team was missing injured forwards Derrick Coleman, Monty Williams and Greg Buckner. McGrady scored 15 points in the first half, which had 15 lead changes and 17 ties, including 51-51 at intermission. Two free throws by Van Horn gave Philadelphia its largest lead at 65-56 midway through the third period, but McGrady scored seven straight points before a 3-pointer by Armstrong gave Orlando a 66-65 edge with 4:33 left. Iverson's last basket came 19 seconds later. "We should have buckled up when we had the nine-point lead," Iverson said. "We would have had the `W.'"
