Nelson steps up to power Magic to commanding 3-0 lead

CHARLOTTE (NBA.com exclusive) -- Charlotte's dream scenario in its first-ever home playoff game -- a loud building and the NBA's defensive player of the year in foul trouble -- turned into a nightmare.

Jameer Nelson turned into a scoring machine and led the Orlando Magic to a 3-0 series lead with a 90-86 win Saturday at Time Warner Cable Arena after Dwight Howard was limited to just 26 minutes.

Nelson matched a season-high 32 points in pushing the Magic to the brink of advancing to the second round of the playoffs.

"He led us tonight," Howard said. "He did an excellent job of shooting the ball, passing the ball and playing defense. He did an excellent job defensively and that's what won us the game."

The Orlando point guard did it all on both ends for much of the afternoon. He had just two points in the fourth quarter but it was a clutch basket with 1:32 left which stopped the surging Bobcats.

"I'm just trying to attack and get in the lane and make something happen," Nelson said. "Whether it's getting to the basket or creating or making the shot. It's fun when you're out there making shots obviously, but I was trying to focus more on defense."

Nelson then caused a turnover on the other end which helped seal the win for the Magic.

"Jameer dominated the game again," Charlotte coach Larry Brown said. "His points in the first quarter were special, but I thought the last eight minutes of the game he was phenomenal. He's been phenomenal the whole series, and when you get in the playoffs your best players have to step up and he certainly has."

The Bobcats felt they had every opportunity to pick up their first playoff win, but were never able to capitalize on Howard's foul issues.

"When Dwight wasn't in the game, we definitely toughened up and got stops," Nelson said. "We have to fight for those guys when they go to the bench."

Charlotte led the game with 3:32 to play after Howard picked up his sixth foul on a three-point play from Raymond Felton, but were never able to take the lead again after four straight free throws from Rashard Lewis put Orlando in the lead for good.

The Magic were 9-for-10 down the stretch from the free-throw line, including Marcin Gortat who replaced Howard and went 3-for-4 despite shooting just 64 percent on the season from the line.

"Dwight Howard is barely playing over half a game," Stan Van Gundy said, "and if you don't have a quality back-up like Gortat, clearly you are going to get a drop-off. He comes into the game, down one, going down the stretch and we are able to get the win. It's a testament to his value to us."

Charlotte was again able to frustrate and defend Howard on the offensive end. The all-star center scored just 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds and fouled out in the fourth quarter. Howard has been limited by foul trouble throughout the series, averaging just 27 minutes and 11 points and eight rebounds.

"Even though I may not score a lot of points or thing might not go my way, I have to be there for my team on the defensive end," Howard said. "I have to block shots, change shots, rebound and just be a force in the middle. It was a frustrating night for me, but I understand it's not about me. We're playing for something bigger right now."

The Magic will now look to close out the series Monday night while the Bobcats will continue to look for their first ever playoff win.

"We have to come in with the mindset that we have to win this game," Howard said. "We can't play around. We don't want to give any team confidence. That's the way we've been looking at it since Game 1. We have to come out and get the job done."
