The Hawks got the job done thus far, taking one of two on the road and they will want to take the series lead here at home for Game 3. The Orlando Magic, led by Dwight Howard who is having an immaculate series will need to get others involved.
The Magic shot a strikingly poor 34 percent from the field in Game 2 but were a force on the glass, collecting 52 rebounds. The Hawks will need to crash the boards and limit everyone else not named Dwight Howard.
The plan here will be similar to Game 1 for the Hawks, let Dwight Howard control the game but alienate everyone else on his team. He did have 46 points in a losing effort.
The Magic will want to drastically improve their shooting from beyond the arc, they went 5-23 in Game 2 and will need to drain more attempts if they want to take the series lead.
This series is wide open and this is a significant game for both teams.
This promises to be a great game.
