Monday’s Magic Word

Second Look: Atlanta Hawks 80, Orlando Magic 74

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Stan Van Gundy wanted to find something positive about the way the Orlando Magic played against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night. He pored over the box score and pored over it and pored over it. But he found nothing encouraging. The Magic lost to the Hawks in a game every bit as …
