Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- For one night, Tracy McGrady was not the best player on the floor. Scottie Pippen had season highs of 25 points and 17 rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers continued to roll with a 96-89 victory over the Orlando Magic. One of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players who has won six NBA titles, Pippen has taken on a diminished role since joining the Blazers four seasons ago. But at times matched against the NBA's leading scorer in McGrady, the 37-year-old Pippen had his best game of the season. He connected on 7-of-13 shots from the field, fell one rebound shy of a career high and handed out seven assists. "I turned it back (in time) a little tonight," Pippen said. "The opportunities were there for me and I took advantage of it." "To see him (Pippen) do that is a sign of how great he really is," Blazers guard Derek Anderson said. "You can tell he is mentally prepared when he comes to work." Meanwhile, McGrady endured foul trouble and struggled for much of the night as he had his string of consecutive 30-point games stopped at eight. The All-Star had 12 points through three quarters and finished with 24, making just 10-of-27 shots. In the last three games - all losses - McGrady has connected on just 39-of-100 shots. "It's tough to know that we're right there, that we can't win any games," McGrady said. "The last five or six games, we've lost by like two or three points. Somehow, someway, we've got to find a way over this hump." "I think we got a lot more people to throw at Tracy," Pippen said. "I think our defensive scheme on how we play forces other guys to beat you. We ran a lot of guys at him. He didn't come out as aggressive as I thought he would." Rasheed Wallace added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who took control with a 16-6 run in the fourth quarter and won for the 21st time in their last 26 games. The Blazers also swept the season series from the Magic while beating them for the eighth straight time overall. A foul shot by rookie Pat Burke pulled the Magic within 65-62 early in the fourth quarter before the Blazers began to pull away. Pippen triggered the decisive run with a turnaround jumper and Wallace had consecutive baskets, giving the Blazers a nine-point cushion with 8:01 remaining. McGrady, who primarily was guarded by Bonzi Wells and Ruben Patterson, had a driving dunk 18 seconds later for the Magic's first basket of the fourth period. Wells and Patterson drew praise from coach Maurice Cheeks for their defense. "They both did excellent jobs," Cheeks said. "When you know that a guy's going to get 25-30 shots a night, it makes it even tougher. The other guys helped them out tonight, and our defense was solid on him. We tried to keep the ball out of his hands." Damon Stoudamire, who was relegated to the bench for the first three quarters, hit a pair of 3-pointers in the burst and capped it with a shot from beyond the arc for an 81-68 bulge with 5:25 to play. Orlando never mounted a serious charge, getting as close as six points with under a minute remaining. The highlight of the fourth quarter for the Magic came with just over two minutes remaining when the buzzer got stuck at the scorer's table. McGrady and a host of teammates covered their heads with towels, trying to block out the noise. "I'm looking for any sign," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "I'm thinking that's someone telling us it's time to go, time to get better." Mike Miller added 20 points and Pat Garrity 15 for Orlando, which shot just 37 percent (34-of-91). Sparked by Pippen and Wallace, the bigger Blazers held a 49-43 edge on the boards. Although he played just 12 minutes in the first half, Pippen was able to make his presence felt. Working against the smaller Orlando guards, he scored 15 points in the second quarter, helping the Blazers to a 46-42 lead. "Scottie's game is not built on scoring points, but I didn't know he had 17 rebounds," Cheeks said. "Early on, we posted him against (Jacque) Vaughn, and I think that was a big difference for us. His overall game was great for us tonight." A layup by Wells gave the Blazers their biggest lead of the third quarter at 57-48. Wells finished with 12 points as the Blazers shot 47 percent (36-of-77). Darrell Armstrong scored six of his 10 points to fuel a 13-6 run to close the third quarter, pulling the Magic within 63-61.
