Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Golden State Warriors used their size advantage to beat the Orlando Magic at their own game. Troy Murphy had a career-high 24 points and 12 rebounds and Gilbert Arenas added 23 points and eight assists as the Warriors dominated the Magic en route to a 135-92 victory. The Magic entered the game as the highest-scoring team in the NBA, averaging 106.3 points per game. But they also had the third-worst defense in the league and could not stop Golden State, which dominated inside against undersized Orlando. "I don't think that a lot of people take us seriously and we came out and tried to do the best that we could," Murphy said. "We are young and they are a long way from home. We tried to take advantage of that." Murphy made 8-of-11 shots and Antawn Jamison scored 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting as the Warriors shot 59 percent (48-of-82) and posted the highest total in the NBA this season. They eclipsed the Magic's 125-point effort on November 5. Adonal Foyle had eight points and 10 rebounds and Erick Dampier added eight and eight for Golden State, which scored 50 points in the paint and held an overwhelming 52-29 rebounding advantage. "It is really our intensity on defense that has been bothering us," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "We are searching for our big guys to step up and I think it puts pressure on our smalls. It is a disappointing loss. This is a game that we can win if we play well, but not when you play like we did." The Magic were held to their lowest total of the season and 38 percent (30-of-78) shooting in the worst loss in franchise history. "We felt that the two keys tonight were going to be transition defense and rebounding," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "To hold Orlando, one of the better scoring teams, to 92 points is not easy." Jason Richardson scored 18 points and rookie Mike Dunleavy Jr. had a season-high 11 as the Warriors snapped a five-game losing streak to the Magic. "I think that any win for us right now is going to give us confidence," Arenas said. "We have been playing some of the best teams out there the first couple of weeks of basketball. We were ready to play from the beginning." Tracy McGrady scored 33 points - 16 from the free-throw line - and Jacque Vaughn added 12 off the bench for Orlando, which lost for the third time in four games. "I thought we came out like we were going to blow them out and that's not our trait," Rivers said. "We have actually played pretty hard and pretty well. But we were making alley-oops and taking tremendously quick shots and that is not a trait that we have had. And from there, it just disintegrated." The Magic had a 16-10 lead less than five minutes into the game before the Warriors scored 12 of the next 13 points. Murphy scored seven points during the burst and gave Golden State the lead for good on a free throw with 5:57 to go. Murphy scored 11 points in the first quarter as the Warriors built a 31-26 lead. Arenas had 11 points in the second period, when Golden State outscored Orlando, 34-24, for a 16-point halftime advantage. The Warriors scored 70 points in the second half and held the Magic to just 43. They had their largest lead at 135-90 on a 3-pointer by Oscar Torres with 26 seconds left.
