Atlanta Hawks (23-12) @ Orlando Magic (24-12) abbreviated preview
After defeating Boston last night 93-85, the Hawks journey to Orlando to take on the Magic tonight. At stake is first place in the Southeast Division as well as respect and some much needed confidence. The Hawks while being 2-0 against Boston this season lost their only other meeting with the Magic on Thanksgiving day and just recently dropped back to back games to the Cavaliers. If the Hawks are too truly challenge the “Big 3″ of the Eastern Conference then this game is one that they need.
The Magic come in struggling having lost 4 games in a row to non playoff teams. They also come in a little injured as Hawk killer Vince Carter sprained his left shoulder and has been ruled out for tonight’s game. Despite the injury and despite the losing streak, The Hawks will have to give a spirited effort if they hope to come away with a victory.
I am excited and thrilled to be a part of the FanSided community and to be the lead blogger for “Soaring Down South”. The Atlanta Hawks have a strong presence in the blogosphere and I hope to become just a small part of that. I have many plans for this website so I hope that you will continue to check it out and become a part of it.
