The Atlanta Hawks beat the Orlando Magic in OT 108-107. Zaza Pachulia had a game winning tip in that gave the Hawks the W. Pachulia got 13 points and 18 boards in 48 minutes. Zaza hit the offensive glass a lot and he was one of the great moves the Hawks made over the off-season. Joe Johnson got 40 points and dished out 11 dimes in 48 minutes. Johnson is a guy the Hawks need to get a 30 and 10 a night to be better. Josh Smith had 15 points and 10 boards in 39 minutes. Smith was great and he has shown better rebounding skills than I thought he had. Al Harrington got 24 points and pulled in 7 boards in 44 minutes. Harrington is in a contract year and if you're the Hawks you will only except the best from him. Dwight Howard got 13 points and 15 boards in 42 minutes. Howard was great ad he's only going to get better in his future with the Magic. Trevor Ariza got 10 points and 8 boards in 20 minutes off the bench. Ariza is getting some minutes now and can be a good player for them. Jameer Nelson got 18 board and 3 boards in 32 minutes. Nelson has been awesome since his ankle injury and he stayed in great game shape.
