At the half the Atlanta Hawks are leading the Orlando Magic by two, 41-39. The Hawks are leading the Magic in the Southeast division by one game and are looking to gain ground on the division leading Miami Heat.
Both the Hawks and Magic playing nearly identical to each other Friday night. They are both three of six from the free throw line, they each have made four three pointers and the Hawks are shooting 43 percent from the field and 44 percent for the Magic.
The Hawks have spread the scoring around with Josh Smith leading the way with eight points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots, but if Smith had been able to shoot better than three of 10 from the field the Hawks might have a larger halftime lead. The Magic are being lead by Dwight Howard who is shooting four of nine from the field with nine points and eight rebounds.
