SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tracy McGrady and the Orlando Magic began the "Texas Triangle." Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs ran circles around them.
Duncan scored 20 points to lead seven players in double figures as the Spurs continued their march to the playoffs with a 118-105 victory over the Magic, their sixth straight win.
Trying to wrap up its third consecutive playoff berth, Orlando began the treacherous three-game trek through Texas against the league's hottest team. San Antonio is 35-7 since January 1 and has been stalking Dallas for the Midwest Division lead and the best record in the NBA.
"When seven guys score in double figures, that is impressive," Duncan said. "We just got a lot of continuity tonight and hopefully we will continue to build down the stretch."
"Everyone really contributed and we were in a great rhythm," forward Stephen Jackson said. "Everyone just made great passes and knocked down shots."
Coming off a home overtime loss to Philadelphia on Monday, McGrady and his undersized teammates had no chance against the Spurs. They fell behind for good in the second quarter and trailed by double digits for virtually all of the second half.
McGrady had 30 points and 10 rebounds before leaving in the fourth quarter with a sore lower back. The MVP candidate was taken to the locker room for treatment and will have three days to rest before Orlando visits Dallas on Saturday.
"I tweaked my side. It's really sore right now," McGrady said. "I have to wait until tomorrow to see how it feels."
"He pulled something in his back," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "We lost Grant Hill. If we lose Tracy, we're in trouble."
Bruce Bowen scored 16 points and David Robinson, Tony Parker and Malik Rose added 14 apiece for the Spurs, who shot 57 percent (43-of-76) from the field, including 9-of-21 from 3-point range. They posted a season high in points.
"I love them," Rivers said. "Tim is Tim, Dave is solid. They're going to be a tough team to beat."
"They are the best," McGrady said. "They have the best defense, the best offense, they're not forcing anything, all their guys are playing in their roles and their defense is the key."
A 3-pointer by Steve Smith gave the Spurs the lead for good at 45-44 with 7:26 left in the second quarter. Bowen scored six points in a 15-8 surge that closed the first half and gave San Antonio a 65-56 lead.
Early in the third quarter, Robinson and Jackson had four points each in a 13-4 run. A 3-pointer by Parker capped it at 78-63 with 7:31 remaining.
McGrady scored seven quick points early in the fourth quarter, helping Orlando close to 100-91 with 7:20 to play. San Antonio responded with an 11-2 burst that featured four points each from Parker and rookie Manu Ginobili for its largest lead at 111-93 with 4:06 to go.
"We really gave up a lot of baskets in the first 24 minutes, but we kept pace with them and really got after it in the second half," Duncan said.
Jackson scored 12 points and Ginobili - named Western Conference Rookie of the Month for March earlier in the day - added 11 for the Spurs.
Drew Gooden scored 19 points and Shawn Kemp added 17 for the Magic, who shot 47 percent (41-of-87). They have lost two in a row since winning six of seven and fell one game behind Boston for sixth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
