Orlando demolishes Atlanta, 114-71

It was a two-point game at the end of the first quarter, but from that point forward, the Magic outscored the Hawks, 89-48. Dwight Howard posted a 21-12 and blocked five shots, while Vince Carter went for 20-6-3 and Jameer Nelson chipped in with 19 points.

The Hawks shot less than 35% from the field and didn’t have a player score more than 14 points (Josh Smith). The Magic are one of the best defensive teams in the league and they showed it tonight.

I don’t think the Hawks are going to put up much of a fight in this series. They have a lot of talent, but they lose focus, are stagnant on offense for big stretches of the game, and they lack chemistry.
