Magic at full strength, end lengthy home drought vs. Rockets

ORLANDO (NBA.com exclusive) -- With Jameer Nelson back in the starting lineup for the first time in five weeks, the Orlando Magic got their offense clicking at a higher level Wednesday night and rolled to a 102-87 victory, their first over the Houston Rockets in Orlando in 7 1/2 years.

Nelson, who sat out more than a month after having surgery to repair a torn left meniscus, had 15 points and four assists and engineered a decisive 15-0 run in the third quarter from which the Rockets (17-12) could not recover.

"They made a few shots and got it going and it was pretty difficult after that," said Houston forward Luis Scola.

Carl Landry came off the bench with a game-high 20 points for the Rockets, who lost in Orlando for the first time since April 8, 2002.

Dwight Howard had 13 points, 20 rebounds and four blocks for the Magic, who have won five of six going into Friday afternoon's Christmas game against the Boston Celtics.

With Nelson back, the Magic (22-7) are close to 100 percent physically.

"I think [Nelson] will get better every game," said Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. "He was a little tired out there -- 29 minutes won't be a lot as the season goes on, but right now it is. Other than that I think his quickness is pretty good. He made some shots, which is always good."

Penetrating frequently, Nelson shot 6-for-11.

"I still passed up a few shots, but that stuff is just going to come," he said. "It's just me trying to find my rhythm and not trying to be super-selfish."

After the 36th 20-rebound effort of his career, Howard was excited to see Nelson back in the mix.

"Little Mighty Mouse is back!" he said. "I'm just happy to see him back on the court, happy to see him healthy. He has to get back in the flow. I told him tonight to just get out there and play; don't worry about mistakes or missing shots or whatever . . . and he did it tonight, and all we expect from him."

The game also marked what is likely to be the final appearance of the Rockets' Tracy McGrady on what was his home floor while he was winning back-to-back NBA scoring championships in 2002-03 and 2003-04.

Recovering from microfracture surgery on his left knee, McGrady played only the final 7:30 of the first quarter, and indicated a growing impatience with his playing time. Twice he referred to his "cameo" appearance.

"I think they had a plan from the start, and regardless of what the outcome of the game was going to be late in the game, they weren't going to bring me in because it would put me at risk," he said. "I've programmed my mind to do what I can in those seven minutes and sit down and be a cheerleader for my guys. That's all I can do."

It was the sixth straight game he has played between seven and eight minutes since his return, and it is a sore subject with the Rockets.

"Let's talk about the game," said coach Rick Adelman. "I've talked about that for six games. I'm just looking to see how he can play and that's the bottom line. That's all I'm looking for."

The Magic led 61-60 before the 15-0 third-quarter run in which Nelson hit three shots, including a couple of 3-pointers, and assisted Rashard Lewis on a 3-pointer. The Rockets went scoreless for more than six minutes.

"We just had a real poor third period," Adelman said. "We couldn't get anything going in the third period and they kind of took control."

Landry and Kyle Lowry kept the Rockets within range, and they were still hanging around at 90-82 late in the fourth quarter. But three quick turnovers turned off the Houston rally, and 3-pointers by Lewis and Vince Carter put the Magic out of danger at 100-84 with 1:45 left.

After the Rockets swept the Magic in the 1995 NBA Finals, the Magic won the next seven meetings in Orlando. Then the Rockets won the next seven in Orlando, a streak that ended Wednesday night.
