Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- No ceremonies before a star-studded crowd or double-overtime thrillers for the Orlando Magic against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Just a straightforward rout of a hapless opponent. Tracy McGrady scored 28 points in three quarters and Pat Garrity came off the bench to add 17 as the Magic cruised to a 102-76 victory over the Cavaliers. McGrady and rookie Gordan Giricek had 12 points apiece during the third quarter, when the Magic outscored the Cavaliers, 39-12. "The third quarter was amazing in two ways," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "One, I felt defensively, we were as active as we have been in a long time. We got our hands on the ball. We got all the second shots, got the rebounds. Offensively, I swear, every time we simplify things, we score more points. Guys just hit the open man." Orlando held a 51-49 lead early in the period before going on a 32-5 run that was capped by Giricek's jumper with 1:08 remaining. Giricek and McGrady each hit two 3-pointers during that stretch. "We just wanted to come out and attack in the third quarter," said McGrady, who also dished out eight assists. "Obviously, this is a game that we should have won and it was close at halftime. So, we felt we had to come out right away and stay aggressive, execute, defend them and get ourselves going and build ourselves a lead." The Orlando star felt the Cleveland players gave up. "We were making everything, defending, and (the Cavs) lost faith in themselves," McGrady said. "We just did whatever we wanted to do on the basketball court. I know they quit. Guys didn't want to play." "We came out and didn't make shots and dropped our heads in the third quarter," Cavs coach Keith Smart said. The Magic shot 61.5 percent (16-of-26) from the field in the quarter, while the Cavaliers were 5-of-22 (22 percent) and turned it over nine times. Overall, Cleveland yielded 30 points off 21 turnovers. "It was an amazing third quarter because it was so simple," Rivers said. "All they (the Magic) did offensively was they pick-and-rolled and they hit open guys. The one thing we talked about was to keep moving the ball, the ball will find the open guy." "Gordan did a great job at that. He was phenomenal in that third quarter. Whenever we can get someone else going, when you have a T-Mac on the floor, it helps the entire team." Giricek was happy to keep things basic. "To play simple basketball is the hardest way to play. If you play simple, everything looks so easy," said the Croatian guard, who finished with 16 points. Orlando is 4-1 since acquiring Giricek and fellow rookie Drew Gooden two weeks from Memphis in a four-player trade. Gooden contributed 13 points and 14 rebounds. "Both of the guys can play," McGrady said. "Drew gives us that low-post presence that we were lacking in the past. Also, he has given us rebounding and he can defend. Gordan gives us a lot of everything; he's given us defense, he's given us a guy who can help me out when I penetrate and defenses collapse on me. I can rely on him to knock down an open jumper." The Magic were coming off Friday's 118-110 double-overtime loss at New York that featured the retirement of Patrick Ewing's jersey. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak. Orlando is 4-1 since trading for Giricek and Gooden. Ricky Davis and rookie Dajuan Wagner scored 14 points apiece and Darius Miles chipped in 12 as the league-worst Cavaliers lost for the 12th time in their last 14 games. "In the first half, we did exactly what we needed to do," Smart said. "We took care of the ball, we didn't turn (the ball) over and we made shots. We did just the opposite in the third quarter." After former Cav Andrew DeClercq scored the opening basket, Cleveland went on a 12-4 run to take the first of three six-point leads in the first quarter. But Orlando closed the period with a 14-4 spurt to take a 24-20 lead. The Magic went ahead, 29-20, on Darrell Armstrong's 3-pointer with 9:55 left in the second period. The Cavs went on a 9-0 spurt, capped by Wagner's 3-pointer, to forge a 29-29 tie, but the Magic took a four-point lead into halftime.
