Game Thoughts

The Hawks get their last crack at the Magic tonight at Phillips Arena. The Magic come in red hot and with a four and half game lead in the southeast division over the second place Hawks. The Hawks come in after a much needed day of rest. Earlier today I focused on the Hawks defense. However, as Andrew Melnick over at Howard the Dunk points out, the Hawks big guns Joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford haven’t played well against the Magic. Johnson is averaging 16 points a game and Crawford is averaging 13 points against the Magic this season. While the Hawks have to focus defensively a hot shooting night by either Johnson or Crawford or both would take some pressure off the Hawks.
