Pietrus back to haunt Warriors


Pietrus back to haunt Warriors OAKLAND (AP) Vince Carter had 27 points and seven assists, Mickael Pietrus scored a season-high 22 points and the Orlando Magic rallied to beat the Golden State Warriors 126-118 on Saturday night.

Dwight Howard added 17 points and eight rebounds, and Jason Williams had 12 points, eight rebounds and five assists. The Magic, who outscored the Warriors 17-4 down the stretch, have won five straight to improve to 16-4 overall and 9-2 on the road.

Monta Ellis had 33 points and seven assists, and Anthony Randolph added a career-high 28 points and 13 rebounds for Golden State. It's the fifth time in eight games Ellis has topped the 30-point mark.

Carter and Pietrus helped pick up the scoring slack when Howard ran into foul trouble midway through the third quarter. The duo scored Orlando's final 15 points in the third, then came up big after the Magic fell behind 114-109 with 6:05 left.

After Anthony Johnson's layup pulled Orlando to 114-111, Pietrus who spent his first five seasons with the Warriors made a tying 3-pointer and Carter followed with his own trey. After a pair of Golden State misses, Carter added two free throws and Pietrus connected on his fourth 3-pointer to make it 122-114.

Matt Barnes, another former Warrior, had 11 points and six rebounds for Orlando, 14-6 in its last 20 games against Golden State.

Ellis did his best to put the Warriors in range to upset the defending Eastern Conference champs, repeatedly burning the Magic with midrange jumpers.

Golden State, which will embark on its five-game trip without coach Don Nelson, led by four early in the fourth quarter and were up 114-109 following an 18-foot jumper by Randolph and a layup by Corey Maggette. The Warriors went cold after that, however, and the Magic rallied behind Carter and Pietrus.

NOTES: The already injury-depleted Warriors also were without their third-leading scorer, guard Anthony Morrow, who flew to North Carolina on Friday following a death in his family.
