Orlando is on the brink of elimination heading home for game 5. Every game but the opener has been close but the rest of the Magic have not been supplying much assistance to Superman centre Dwight Howard. In the first two games of the series Howard was near unstoppable at home and he will need to be again for them to continue their season.

Last game the Magic got a surprise performance from “Agent 0” Gilbert Arenas. With guard Jason Richardson out of the lineup due to suspension he exploded for 20 points, a rarity this season for him.

If the Magic can get Richardson going as well upon his return they might be able to force another game after this one. I am surprised as to how much respect Vegas is giving the Magic given how bad their play has been in the series.

The Atlanta Hawks are sitting pretty needing just one more victory to advance to the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Guard Jamal Crawford continues to be fantastic, leading the Hawks in scoring again in game 4 as they took command of the series. It wasn’t a fantastic performance by Atlanta in game 4 but it got the job done.

The one thing that jumped out is how poor their foul shooting was – just 60% for the game.

They may have hung on to win and cover but this is something to keep an eye on moving forward, Crawford was just 2 for 6 and forward Josh Smith 1 of 4 from the line. They both shoot it much better than that so hopefully this was just a hiccup.

Other than that not to muck to pick at about the Hawks right now.

Betting Trends:
Magic are 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.
Magic are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games as a favorite.
Magic are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall.
Hawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
Hawks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.
Hawks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Conference Quarterfinals games.

Free Magic vs Hawks Pick: I think the Magic go out with a whimper in this one. Sure Dwight Howard will look great but it won’t be enough – again. This one will look like game 1.

Score prediction: Atlanta – 100 vs. Orlando – 91
