2016 NBA Season:Atlanta Hawks vs.
Orlando MagicDecember 13, 2016 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, the Atlanta Hawks will play the Orlando Magic in their first of four scheduled Eastern Conference regular season matchup. The Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA will host the game at 8:30AM ET.

The Atlanta Hawks has yet to play consistently in their first 24 games of the season. With a 12-12 record, Atlanta started the season with a 9-2 record and went downward after their hot start.

The Hawks have three days off from their come-from-behind victory over the Milwaukee Bucks last Friday. They hope to build momentum from their last win when they host the Orlando Magic.

The Orlando Magic will be in town carrying a three-game losing streak. They have lost 17 of their past 22 games against Atlanta and coach Frank Vogel is primed to stop the bleeding.

Orlando has one of the stiffest defense at the start of the season. They were not able to sustain it as the season progressed. To win games in the NBA, you should know how to contain you opponents consistently every game.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Atlanta Hawks as the favorites to beat the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night.
