Hawks Vs. Magic Final Score: Orlando Forces Game 6 In Atlanta

With their backs against the wall, the Orlando Magic pulled off the first dominant win of their playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks, winning 101-76. Game 6 is scheduled for Thursday night in Philips Arena, with Atlanta leading the series 3-2.

Dwight Howard was able to take some much-needed time off, playing only 29 minutes after being on the floor for almost the entire series thus far. He scored just eight points, but was able to grab eight rebounds and hammer a dunk on Zaza Pachulia, who's not popular in Orlando.

Atlanta led by just one point -- when Josh Smith hit a free throw in the opening minute. Smith finished with a game-high 22 points and combined with Al Horford to produce 25 rebounds.
