Magic face crucial Game 2 tonight
April 19, 2011, 1:19 pm
Tonight at 7:30 the Magic will try and get back on the right track against the Atlanta Hawks and avoid being put in a 2 game hole in the best of 7 series. To make matters worse, the next two games will be played in Atlanta which would provide an uphill climb for the Magic if they want to win the series. Game 1 occurred on Saturday night as the Hawks defeated the Magic 103-93 and were led by great shooting performances by Joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford. The biggest problem for Orlando is finding supporting help for their star Center, Dwight Howard. Howard had a career high 46 points in game 1 but it was not enough to keep the Magic close. They will need increased production from Ryan Anderson, Brandon Bass, Jason Richardson and Hedo Turkoglu if they want to combat the high scoring Hawks.
