Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Tracy McGrady returned, Mike Miller rediscovered his scoring touch and the Orlando Magic recorded a win. McGrady had 31 points and 12 rebounds and Miller scored 21 points as the Magic snapped a two-game skid with a 113-108 victory over the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers. The NBA scoring leader, McGrady did not join his teammates on an unsuccessful trip to Boston on Sunday after learning that his fiancee had gone into labor. But the All-Star guard, who torched Cleveland for 35 points and 11 boards in Orlando's road win eight days ago, netted 13 in the fourth quarter as the Magic won for the fifth time in their last six meetings with the Cavaliers. "We're not that good of a team to be taking teams lightly and that's what we have to realize," said McGrady, whose team moved a game over .500. Miller shot just 2-of-18 from the floor in Sunday's loss and missed all six shots in the first half at TD Waterhouse Centre. But the 6-8 forward exploded in the third period, tallying 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting and Orlando grabbed an 84-82 advantage. "In this game and Boston, I was short on a lot of my jumpers," Miller said. "So I had to get it going somehow. That's what players do, you gotta score." Zydrunas Ilgauskas paced Cleveland with 22 points. But the All-Star center fouled out with 3:43 left, and the Cavaliers dropped their fifth straight on the road, where they have the second-worst record in the NBA at 3-22. "We gotta keep moving in the right direction defensively," said Cavaliers interim coach Keith Smart, who is 1-3 since John Lucas was fired last week. "If we're solid defensively, that gives us a chance to be close in most games. Our guys played well, but we learn from this and get ready for the next game." Cleveland rookie Smush Parker registered a season-high 21 points, improving upon his 20-point game against Milwaukee on December 9. McGrady scored at least 30 points in his sixth straight game. The 23-year-old moved within one of matching his own franchise mark, which he set from November 10-20. Despite such production from their star player, Orlando again had difficulty finishing off a struggling team on its home court. Last Wednesday, McGrady collected 31 points for the Magic, who beat the meager Chicago Bulls by just three. Back on January 6, he scored 28 and Orlando posted a three-point win over the fickle New York Knicks. "You got to take it (the win), but we've just got to do a better job," McGrady said. "We've just got to do a better job of closing out games. The team over there really isn't playing that well, but they have a lot of talent over there." McGrady registered his ninth double-double of the 2002-03 campaign. Miller got going just 15 seconds into the second half, hitting a jumper and pulling Orlando within 57-56. "Our coaching staff was talking about it before the game - we have to get Mike an open shot early," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "Otherwise, the snowball will get bigger. He was 0-for-6 at halftime and the snowball was huge and our whole thought was we have to get him an open look that he can make." Miller converted a layup just over a minute later and then made a driving layup with 8:23 to go in the third and gave Orlando a 68-63 edge. "It's tough when you're shooting and, in scoring, things aren't going as they normally do," Miller said. "You don't want to start thinking about your misses, but you do need to do what you need to do to help your game out." "I said (to Miller), 'I played with one of the greatest scorers of all time in Dominique (Wilkins) and Dominique didn't have that conscience,'" Rivers said. "'If he missed four or five - 20 - it wouldn't have bothered him.' That's the only difference; it was bothering Mike." Miller's jumper with 1:45 left in the third increased the lead to 83-76. But the Cavaliers closed the period on a 6-1 burst.
