Hawks take down the Magic

'The Atlanta Hawks broke open a close game with a dominating third quarter, outscoring the Orlando Magic 24-12 in the period. The Hawks took a 16-point lead into the final quarter and never looked bad.

Orlando's offense was almost non-existent. The Magic could only muster 72 points, shot 37.8% from the field (31-of-82), made just two three-pointers (20.0%) and turned the ball over 19 times. Atlanta's defense has been very good so far this season, but those numbers are still pathetic.

On the flip side, Atlanta didn't have a whole lot of success on the offensive end either. The Hawks shot just 38.2% from the field (34-of-89) and went five-of-25 from beyond the arc (20.0%). Forward Josh Smith was awful, scoring just six points on three-of-10 shooting.

Glen Davis was only slightly more efficient, scoring 11 points on five-of-13 shooting to go with seven rebounds. Center Nikola Vucevic finished with five points and 13 rebounds.

Former Florida Gator Al Horford led all scorers with 15 points on six-of-11 shooting. Guard Lou Williams added 14 points off of the bench.

The Magic will be back in action when they host the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night.

Nelson won't play

Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson probably won't play Monday night against the Atlanta Hawks. According to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, he, like guard J.J. Redick, has come down with an illness.

Denton says Nelson isn't 100%, but put some shots up after having some soup.

Nelson has played in just three games this season. He's averaging 10.0 points, 8.7 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game, but is shooting a dismal 27.3% from the field.

If Nelson can't go, E'Twaun Moore will get the start. Moore has started six of the nine games he's played in, averaging 12.8 points, 4.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game.

Redick missed Sunday's loss to the Toronto Raptors and is listed as a game-time decision for Monday's game. Redick has been fantastic this season, averaging 15.8 points, 5.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 48.9% from the field in eight games this season.

With Redick out Sunday afternoon, the Magic slid leading scorer Arron Afflalo back to shooting guard and started DeQuan Jones at small forward.
