The Magic Stay Alive

After dropping the Atlanta Hawks last night in Orlando in convincing fashion the words "3-2 We're Still Behind" were written on the Magic's team whiteboard, an ever present reminder the Magic are still a single game away from elimination in the playoffs.
The Magic found their long-range shot last night, at one point hitting on 50% of their three-point attempts before ending the game 11-of-26 from three (42.3%) on the way to a convincing 25-point win.

Interestingly enough Magic star Dwight Howard - who going into Game 5 led all NBA players in scoring in the playoffs with 32.3 points per game - notched just eight points and eight rebounds.

Every dressed Magic player logged minutes, and every Magic player notched points, something the Magic had not seen in some time.

After the game the Hawks were mindful that they let an opportunity slip away, while the Magic were mindful that it was just one game and that the series was still very much in Atlanta's hands.

The Magic head to Atlanta for Game 6 on Thursday, but as an organization are confident there will be a Game 7, as pre-sale tickets for Game 7 on Saturday went on sale last night – head to if you are interested.
