At this point, we owe the Hawks one after the 11/19 loss @ ATL. We have to get after the boards and keep the Hawks from scoring second chances pts off our mistakes. What really screwed us over was the 19 TOs' we collected. The best advice here is to learn from past mistakes and take our opponent to task this time.

Go Magic!

Hawks beat the Grizz on Saturday, but lost to the Heat on Monday. But, they played good both games. They are playing good basketball considering they lost Joe Johnson. This will definitely be a very tough game as the Hawks have a deeper bench.

Great thread. As Pimp said, this is definitely going to be a tough game for our Magic. The Hawks are definitely playing some unselfish basketball right now and are actually a lot more tolerable to watch compared to how they were in previous seasons.

We can get this win as long as we share the basketball like we are capable of, limit our turnovers and win the rebound battle...LET'S GET IT!!! 8-)

This could get ugly. Hawks play very good defense. Hopefully JJ hits his shots today and we take the win.

At least it's at home.

We won't have to hear the Hawks PA announcer.

It'll help that Jameer and JJ will be playing without illnesses this time. Can't imagine us shooting worse than 37.8 FG% at home.

Orlando has for a long time matched up poorly against the Hawks. It is interesting though that for a game that has a line of -4.5, the computers love Atlanta in this game at a 98% win potential. I guess that means one should not wager on Orlando.

Here's hoping this is a trap game for the Hawks!

Going to be a tough game. Hawks are playing very well. Just hope our guys can bring the effort to give ourselves a chance.

The real question is, will the Magic ever beat the Hawks again? Unreal that they could so utterly dominate them in the playoffs and then the very next season never be able to beat them ever seemingly.
