Bucks' Redd stops McGrady, Magic

Michael Redd made a big statement to Tracy McGrady _ at both ends of the court.

Redd scored a career-high 40 _ 32 in the second half _ and held McGrady scoreless in the fourth quarter in the Bucks' 113-102 win over the Magic Wednesday night.

Redd converted a key three-point play with 47 seconds left, made his final 10 shots and was 12-of-15 in the second half.

"Just an unbelievable zone, man," Redd said. "My teammates kept finding me, kept finding me. We had fun."

Playing with a strained big toe in his left foot, McGrady scored 20 in 42 minutes, but missed his only three shots in the fourth quarter. Two days earlier, he scored 34 in the Magic's 106-99 victory over Milwaukee in Orlando.

"He embarrassed us in Orlando. Flat out," Redd said.

In that game, Redd missed 14 of 19 shots and was held to 18 points while guarded by rookie Keith Bogans.

"Michael Redd hit all kinds of shots tonight," said Bogans, who had a career-high 21 points.

Desmond Mason added 18 off the bench for the Bucks, whose reserves outscored Orlando's 38-27, two days after the Magic's reserves topped the Bucks' 43-27.

Orlando has lost nine consecutive road games.
