Sunday April 1 finds the Orlando Magic arriving at Philips Arena to face their host the Atlanta Hawks. In their last game Atlanta lost to the Philadelphia 76ers and are on a five game losing streak. Meanwhile the Orlando Magic lost to the Chicago Bulls for their fifth loss in six games.
Last season, the team split the four game series while the Magic holds a two game to one edge this season. The Hawks hold the all-time record having bested the Magic in 57 of their 111 matches.
Only three players scored in double digits in the Magic’s recent loss to the Bulls. Aaron Gordon led the way with 18, while D.J. Augustin and Nikola Vucevic added 15 and 12 respectively.
Wes Iwundu (illness) missed the last two games and is questionable for Sunday. Jonathon Simmons (wrist) has missed the last four games and is expected to remain out with no confirmed return date listed.
Evan Fournier (knee) has missed the last 10 games and is likely out for remainder of season with no reason not to exercise caution since he’s a member of the Magic core unit.
Likewise Terrence Ross (sprained MCL and non-displaced fracture of the tibia plateau) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Despite a 32 to 15 point fourth quarter the Hawks were unable to catch the 76ers who delivered a 39 to 18 third quarter to jump out to a sizeable lead.
Several Hawks contributed with five registering double digit scoring. Damion Lee led the way with 20 points, Isaiah Taylor and Taurean Prince scored 12, Dewayne Dedmon added 11 and Tyler Dorsey pitched in with 11 points.
It’s a lengthy list of Hawks players out injured, which sure points to Atlanta exorcising extreme caution in health. Or if you want to jump on the tank conspiracy it means if the team was competing for a playoff seed a bunch would likely suit up.
The six players who’ll be out for this match are Dennis Schroder (sprained ankle | medial bone bruise), Jaylen Morris (ankle), Kent Bazemore (knee), Malcolm Delaney (ankle), DeAndre’ Bembry (abdominal strain) and Antonius Cleveland (ankle).

Free Orlando Magic vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
It’s the battle of the tankers with the Hawks seeded 29th (but technically tied with the Grizzlies) and Magic 27th in the race to finish last. Let’s assume neither team will be inspired to play defense. And, that will lead to a “your turn – my turn” offensive showcase.
