The Atlanta Hawks have a good shot to pick up two wins this week, as they host the two bottom teams in the Southeast, the Orlando Magic and the Washington Wizards.

The Hawks have a good chance to pull their record above .500 this week, and can do so against a pair of Southeast Division foes with losing records. The Orlando Magic come to town on Monday night, one day after losing to the Raptors 97-86 in Toronto. Arron Afflalo is leading the team with 16.5 points per game, and both J.J. Redick and Glen Davis are averaging over 15 points per game.

On Wednesday night, the Hawks will welcome the Washington Wizards to Atlanta. The Wizards are still looking for their first victory of the season. They lost to the Utah Jazz at home on Saturday night, and will face the Indiana Pacers on Monday night before making the trip down to Atlanta. Without John Wall, the Wizards have truly struggled. Jordan Crawford leads the team with 12.4 points per game, followed by rookie Bradley Beal, who has 10.9 points per game so far.
