The Atlanta Hawks continue their journey south as they are looking to battle the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. The Hawks have been quite underwhelming in their last 10 matches, going 3-7. Orlando, on the other side of the court, has won 3 consecutive games but has one of the worst records in the Eastern Conference. The match is set to start at 7:00pm Eastern Time.
The Atlanta Hawks started the season looking like a well put together squad and everything indicated that the trade of Dejounte Murray to the Hawks was going to be a success. However, the Hawks have gone through the wrong road, mainly thanks to several injuries, and the team has now lost 7 of their last 10 games. In their recent match, the Hawks were absolutely demolished by Memphis, 128-103.
Atlanta missed basically the entire starting squad: Young, Murray, John Collins, Clint Capella and Brogdan Bogdanovic. Fans expect Trae Young, Clint Capella, and Brogdan Bogdanovic to make a return for this game.
For a team that has won only 8 games throughout the season, the Magic has recently found a 3 game win streak at home. In their last match, Franz Wagner scored 23 points and Paolo Banchero grabbed a double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds, with the game finishing 111-99 over Toronto. Improvement is definitely happening as this is the first instance of a 3 game win streak for Orlando since back in February of the 2020-21 season.
The Magic’s current game style is really impressive as it has been done without starting center Wendell Carter Jr., who is still out due to a foot injury. They were also playing without guards Jalen Suggs and Gary Harris. Orlando are currently 28th in the NBA in scoring in 2023, 17th in field goal % and 20th in efficiency from deep.
Thanks to their current momentum, we lean towards a Magic victory.
