=== Orlando Magic Team Report – January 26 ===
(Sports Network) – The Orlando Magic try to get back on the winning track
this evening when they head to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers at Gund
Orlando, meanwhile, enters on a losing note after its 99-87 setback to the
Houston Rockets on Sunday. Tracy McGrady posted a team-high 31 points for
the Magic, who lost for the second time in three games.
Tyronn Lue and Gordan Giricek scored 12 and 10 points, respectively.
Orlando entered the fourth quarter down only seven points, but Steve Francis
buried a jumper and Maurice Taylor converted consecutive layups a minute
into the period to put Houston up 79-69.
The Magic would not get within single-digits the rest of the way and trailed
by as many as 17.
Orlando has dropped nine of its last 10 on the road and is 6-14 away from
home this season.
The Magic defeated the Cavs earlier in the season and has won six straight
in the series and eight of the last nine meetings. Orlando has also won two
straight and six of its last nine in Cleveland.
