The Atlanta Hawks pay a visit to the Orlando Magic today at the Amway Center.
The Hawks have lost five of their last nine games but will be looking to build on a three-game win streak following their 102-96 win over the Pacers on Friday. Paul Millsap dominated the game with 24 points on 10 of 14 shooting, Al Horford added 21 points while Jeff Teague had 16 points as the Hawks shot 51 percent from the field and 10 of 27 from the 3-point line to survive the 31-point barrage from Paul George and beat the Pacers. With the win, Atlanta improves to 30-22 on the season and 17-8 at home where they've won five of their last six.

Meanwhile, the Magic have lost 11 of their last 12 games and looked poor in Friday's 107-93 home loss to the Clippers. Victor Oladipo had a nice game of 18 points while Evan Fournier added 16 points off the bench but the Magic just couldn't stay with the Clippers as they shot just 42 percent from the field and four of 20 from the 3-point arc. It looked as if the Magic may have been on the rise after nearly beating the Thunder on Wednesday, but they looked pretty toothless against an in-form but shorthanded Clippers outfit.
In ATS trends, the Hawks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a winning home record, while the Magic are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games overall.
Head to head, the Hawks are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Orlando and the under is 36-15 in the last 51 meetings overall.
Despite their struggles, the Magic could put it all together and come out with the minor upset and win this one straight up, but I'm definitely sticking with the Hawks who will look to keep their winning momentum going into the All-Star break.
