Default Re: *OFFICIAL* ORLANDO MAGIC game discussion thread. **including playoffs!

game recap:
Detroit 98, Orlando 90 -- The AP reports: Rasheed Wallace blocked a shot and made a 3-pointer on the opening possessions and finished with 17 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks to help the Detroit Pistons beat the Orlando Magic 98-90 and take a 2-0 lead in the first-round series... In Game 2, Detroit's balance was too much for Orlando's two-player attack. Detroit's starters each scored at least 10 points and top reserve Antonio McDyess added nine points and 11 rebounds... The Magic, meanwhile, didn't have a third player in double figures until the final minute of the game when former Piston Darko Milicic scored his 10th point -- all in the fourth quarter... The Pistons were in control for much of the game, but just like the opener, Orlando rallied late to make the final score look respectable.

For the Pistons: Richard Hamilton on 14 shots had 22 points and 6 assists. Chauncey Billups on 12 shots had 21 points and 8 assists. Tayshaun Prince shot 7-of-13 for 18 points and 6 rebounds. Rasheed Wallace shot 7-of-15 for 17 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks. Chris Webber went 4-of-8 for 10 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. Antonio McDyess shot just 2-of-11 for 9 points and 11 rebounds.

For the Magic: Hedo Turkoglu shot 10-of-14 for 22 points and 2 blocks. Grant Hill on just 10 shots had 21 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Darko Milicic shot 5-of-9 for 10 points, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. Dwight Howard was a mere 3-of-9 for 8 points, 11 rebounds and no blocks.
