Magic pull even with Hawks

April 20, 2011, 1:57 pm

A disaster was avoided in Orlando Tuesday as the Magic evened up the series at 1-1 with the Atlanta Hawks. Star center Dwight Howard had 33 points and 19 rebounds while point guard Jameer Nelson added 13 points and eight rebounds to help the Magic hold off the Hawks 88-82. The Hawks started out with a solid lead but bit by bit Orlando pulled closer and closer until a second half surge helped them pull away. Orlando used a 10-1 run to close the third quarter to take an 11-point lead into the fourth and fought off a late Atlanta charge down the stretch. “It’s not anything I did, our guys did it,” Coach Van Gundy said when asked about the adjustments he made after Game 1. “You gotta get out and take the challenge. … Every game sort of takes on a life of its own and you just gotta do whatever it takes to get the win on that night.”
