Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- The Orlando Magic have found a winning formula at home. It starts and ends with Steve Francis and Grant Hill. Francis scored 33 points and Hill added a season-high 32 as the Magic pulled away for a 107-92 victory over the Utah Jazz to remain perfect at home. Francis and Hill made a combined 24-of-34 shots, including 7-of-8 in the final period to seal the win. The tandem has averaged a combined 50.8 points per game at the TD Waterhouse Centre, leading Orlando to its first 4-0 home start since the 1998-99 season, when it won its first 10. Francis, who finished an assist shy of his seventh career triple-double, scored 14 points in the fourth, including 10 during an 18-4 run. His driving layup with 6:39 left gave the Magic the lead for good, 83-82. "He's showing he is the real deal," Hill said. "To be able to score 30 points and also add 11 assists, it shows that you're playing the game the right way." Hill's 32 points were his best output since he scored 36 on April 10, 2000, when he was with Detroit. He played a season-high 41 minutes and is showing the form that led him to five All-Star appearances before injuries took their toll in the last few seasons. "I think the injury situation is behind him," Magic coach Johnny Davis said. "He's logging quality minutes and he's doing the things on the floor that let you know he's getting comfortable." Hill did most of his damage against Utah stopper Andrei Kirilenko. He scored seven of Orlando's last 17 points, capping a 36-17 fourth quarter. "He (Hill) looked great," Jazz forward Carlos Boozer said. "He is quick and agile. He's one of those guys that really went through a lot to get back. It's great to see him out there." The Magic's closing rally was a far cry from its sluggish start. Orlando missed nine of its first 11 shots and committed four turnovers to help Utah take a 20-8 lead. "I thought we came out flat early in the game," Hill said. In the second quarter, Hill scored 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting to trim the deficit to 46-45. After a 29-point third quarter, Utah had little left. "We couldn't contain them on the dribble," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "Hill and Francis just put us away. Anybody can play this game defensively for three quarters, but when you get down the stretch, that's where you break down. That's what happened tonight." Boozer scored 27 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Jazz, who lost for the first time in four road games this season.
