Magic get ready for the playoffs
April 13, 2011, 7:16 pm
The NBA announced their first set of playoff games earlier today and the Orlando Magic will play Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, April 16th at 7 p.m. The 4 seeded Magic have home court advantage against the division rival Hawks as they begin their quest towards the Larry O’Brien trophy. This matchup is nothing new for Orlando as they faced Atlanta in the playoffs last year and proceeded to dismantle them piece by piece over the course of 4 games. Their is some reason for the Magic to worry this year in that Atlanta has won 3 out of 4 meetings this season. The other match ups and times for the Eastern Conference playoffs are as follows:
Indiana Pacers at Chicago Bulls : 1PM 4/16
Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Hear 3:30PM 4/16
New York Knicks at Boston Celtics 7PM 4/17
The schedule for the rest of the games between the Magic and the Hawks will be announced at a later time.
