Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- After Mike Miller was forced to leave with an injury, rookie Pau Gasol and Jason Williams carried the load for the increasingly poised Memphis Grizzlies. Gasol scored 26 points and Williams added 17 and 15 assists as the Grizzlies recorded their first-ever road victory over the Orlando Magic, 110-104. Gasol had 15 points and Miller chipped in 14 in the first half, when Memphis overcame 28 points from Tracy McGrady and trailed just 61-60. "That's the best first half anyone had against us since I took over the team," Grizzlies coach Hubie Brown said. "That was spectacular what he did. As an opposing coach, you're watching it and you really appreciate greatness. That's exactly what it was." Williams took over at the start of the second half, scoring seven points during an 11-2 run. The point guard's driving layup capped the surge with 9:32 left in the third quarter and gave the Grizzlies a 71-63 lead. "I thought the guy who really won it down the stretch was Jason Williams," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "I thought he broke us down whenever he wanted to. He got to the paint, and that was tough." Miller, who returned to Orlando for the first time since being traded to Memphis on February 19, sat out the second half due to back spasms. "I can't tell you how badly I wanted to go out there for the second half," Miller said. "It is a little sore, but the doctor has his rules. They are trying to limit my minutes. Unfortunately, it had to be tonight." "It was good to see him," said McGrady, who was not pleased with the Miller deal. "He came in here, looked like he felt comfortable out there on the basketball court." Memphis, who dropped 13 straight to start the season, improved to 13-8 since the All-Star break. "We didn't shake them because we weren't playing any defense," Rivers said. "I think we proved all night we could score almost at will. What we didn't prove for the most part was that we could get stops." McGrady finished with 34 points, hitting just 1-of-10 shots after halftime, as the Magic had a four-game winning streak snapped. Orlando had been 6-0 at home against the Grizzlies. "Coming into the game, I knew it was tough," McGrady said. "We played last night and we're coming in tonight against a team that likes to run. I just figured that if we could keep it close, maybe we could pull it off. But down the stretch we couldn't knock down shots." The NBA scoring leader, McGrady increased his team record by scoring at least 30 points for the 10th consecutive game. "I thought he was a little tired," Rivers said. "Tracy at one point was guarding Gasol and then trying to score. That's asking too much on a back-to-back. Even though he played 32 minutes last night, it's a back-to-back still." McGrady collected 23 points on 8-of-10 shooting and the Magic combined to go 14-of-22 (63.6 percent) in the opening 12 minutes. But Shane Battier nailed a 3-pointer in the waning moments and pulled the Grizzlies within 34-31 at the end of the first quarter. The All-Star swingman converted a three-point play midway through the second quarter to give the Magic their biggest lead, 49-41. However, the Grizzlies outscored the Magic, 19-12, during the closing 5:09 of the half. Miller fed Wesley Person for a jumper to spark the surge and capped it with a 3-pointer with 34 seconds to play, reducing the Grizzlies' halftime deficit to one. "We just kind of weathered the storm," Person said. "They were shooting the ball unbelievably good. We just continued to keep working. Then they started missing some shots and we got on the defensive boards and got into transition." The Grizzlies swept the season series with the Magic, who dropped a 99-86 decision at the Pyramid on December 27. McGrady scored 25 points in the first half but only 10 in the second in that one as the Magic squandered a 13-point lead. "They did that the first time. I think they saw what we kind of settled for and that got them back in the game," said Magic forward Pat Garrity, who scored 19 points. "They played zone probably 85-90 percent of the game. They dared us to take jumpers. We scored enough points to win the game. We score 104 at home, we should win."
