2011 NBA Playoffs Round 1: Magic vs Hawks
 
The Orlando Magic face the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs.

Discuss the matchup! Strengths of each team, weaknesses, and don't just predict the outcome -- EXPLAIN WHY!

This could be one of the best 1st round match ups. I have the Magic winning, but it really could go either way.

It depends on Howard greatly, as are all Magic games

Are you saying that the Hawks don't have a chance? It is pretty rare for a 5th seed to have no chance vs the 4th seed. Not much really separates them.

IMO it has the potential to be the best 1st round series out East

I hope some of you are being sarcastic!:oldlol:
I see the magic sweeping the hawks unfortunately. At best the hawks win one game. Atlanta have realistically only gotten worse since last year and the magic completely raped and embarrassed them last yr.

The magic haven gotten much better but I think they will have too much firepower for the hawks to handle.. Hopefully Dwight has a monster series!

I don't think it'll be a sweep, but I cannot see the Magic losing. Dwight is going to dominate in this series!

Magic in 5.. at most 6. I see J-Rich going off, and Anderson averaging 15 + for the series. Howard throws up 2 20/20's and Josh Smith relegated to a jump shooter. Really the Hawks have nothing Orlando fears. Orlando has Howard. 'Nough said...

:facepalm Orlando is a better team from last year. Atlanta isn't. Not saying you guys can't manage to win a game this time but it would be extreme wishful thinking to think Atlanta even has a chance (which is rare in a 4 vs. a 5)

Rooting for the Magic. :cheers: Howard is going to dominate.

You don't just go from that ^ to being able to win a series against that same team a year later. Especially considering the only difference on your team is Hinrich, and Orlando still has the best player....

nothing to see here. no constructive analysis from me. i despise these teams. this is the toilet bowl. i'm gonna use this time to eat, crap, jerk off, vacuum, read, whatever. i hope the 3 ball dies while atlanta still gets blown out by 20+. i predicted atlanta would get blown out by 20+ vs. GS last week. that team has no heart. good riddance to the worst matchup of 2011.

Both teams have shown so much apathy to the game lately. I'll give it to the Magic easy though, even though his teammates don't seem to give half a shit, Dwight always battles it out.
