Hawks 104, Magic 94
The Atlanta Hawks won their 11th straight game over the Orlando Magic, 104-94, behind a balanced attack that featured six players in double figures.
Forward Paul Milsap, one of eight new faces on the Hawks, led the way with 18 points and 11 rebounds.
The Hawks overhauled their roster in the offseason and brought in longtime San Antonio Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer to help the franchise move up the ranks in the Eastern Conference. They are off to a 3-3 start.
