The Atlanta Hawks got lucky and beat the Orlando Magic 96-94. Joe Johnson had a game winning shot that left .7 on the clock and gave the Hawks the W. Al Harrington had 18 points and 12 boards in 39 minutes. Harrington was great and he's getting better in Atlanta. Josh Smith had 15 points and 10 boards in 35 minutes. Smith is ready to defend his dunk title but I think if he works hard he would be a great defensive player. Joe Johnson had 23 points and 11 assists in 40 minutes. Johnson is a key for the Hawks to be good again. Dwight Howard had 24 points and 16 boards in 39 minutes. Howard is getting better and will continue if your scared now in a few years you'll have a nightmare. Tony Battie had 9 points and 13 boards in 40 minutes. Battie is good but not usually this good I like his effort. Hedo Turkoglu had 15 points and 5 assists in 35 minutes. Turk had that passing ability coming from the Kings they should let his handle the ball more and see what he can do.
