    Rookie Redick makes preseason debut in Magic victory

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Pat Garrity scored 18 points and rookie J.J. Redick saw his first preseason action after rehabilitating torn tissue in his foot as the Orlando Magic routed the undermanned Memphis Grizzlies 112-89 in a preseason game Saturday night.

    A reviled figure in college, Redick was greeted warmly by the home crowd, who waited with great anticipation for his first bucket. He missed his only two shots, the second an open jumper set up by Carlos Arroyo on the fast break, and had one foul in 12 minutes.

    Trailing 66-37 at halftime, Memphis missed eight of its first 10 shots in the third quarter. The Grizzlies mounted an 11-0 fourth-quarter run, but were still down by 22 points before James Augustine responded with two free throws with 4:47 left.

    Hakim Warrick and Kyle Lowry led Memphis with 13 points apiece, while Alexander Johnson had 12 points and seven rebounds before fouling out with 1:57 left. No Memphis player cracked double digits in scoring until Johnson's fast-break dunk with 7:01 left in the game.

    All five Magic starters scored in double figures and reserve Arroyo added 13 points and eight assists. Jameer Nelson had 10 points and five assists.

    Garrity had nine points in seven minutes during a 19-1 Magic run that gave them a 34-21 second-quarter advantage. He, Arroyo and undrafted rookie Kasim Powell accounted for all the Magic's buckets while usual scorers Dwight Howard, Nelson and Turkoglu sat out.

    Memphis went nearly 5½ minutes from the end of the first quarter into the second without scoring a point. The Grizzlies had just 16 the entire second quarter and turned the ball over 10 times.

    Despite 10 offensive rebounds in the first half, Memphis had only seven second-chance points, compared with 14 for Orlando on three offensive boards.

    Jake Tsakalidis fouled out with 7:10 left in the fourth quarter. He had five points and six rebounds in 16 minutes.

    Memphis was without Pau Gasol (broken foot), Brian Cardinal (bruised knee), Eddie Jones (sore Achilles') and Mike Miller (big toenail removed).

    Darko Milicic (bruised lower back) and Grant Hill (coach's decision) sat out for Orlando.
