The game stayed close until Alvin Williams fed Jerome Williams for an inside hoop with 55 seconds left for a 111-109 advantage. Orlando had a chance to tie, Grant Hill missed an open jumper with 48 seconds left.

Toronto misfired on its next possession, giving Orlando and McGrady another chance. But McGrady was double-teamed and passed to an open Pat Garrity, who misfired on a three-pointer with 14 seconds remaining. Jerome Williams sank two free throws to help seal it.

McGrady led Orlando with 38 points but had just six in the fourth quarter.
