“We Control Our Own Destiny.”
That’s what a sign leading into the Atlanta Hawks’ Locker room says.
With the 3-2 series lead your Atlanta Hawks look to eliminate the Orlando Magic tonight at Philips Arena.
After being smashed by the Magic 101-76 in Game 5, Hawks forward Josh Smith says the team still feels good about their chances versus Orlando.
Another loss by the Hawks tonight sends the series back to Orlando for a Game 7, a Game 7 that the Hawks do not want to see.
Atlanta’s playoff record is a dismal 134-171 all time and according to Marvin Williams a win tonight would be a step in the right direction.
Orlando has shown that they can defeat the Hawks without having to depend on Dwight Howard so heavily. In Game 5 Jameer Nelson, Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, and J.J. Redick all stepped up and played key roles in the victory over Atlanta.
Tonight’s game is scheduled for 7:30pm.
Should the Magic force a Game 7 it will be played this Saturday in Orlando.
