[ORLANDO] — The Orlando Magic played host to the Atlanta Hawks last night and the Magic did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 131-120 victory. The win bumps Orlando's record up to 11-15 on the season, while the loss drags Atlanta's down to 12-13. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Magic. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was Elfrid Payton leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 26 points, 3 rebounds, 14 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Payton included - and the most important part is that the Magic walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Paul Millsap did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Hawks. Millsap's 17 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Perhaps just as significant if not more so than any individual performance, was Orlando's ability to take the Hawks out of their game. A stellar defensive performance by the Magic helped insure the victory from the moment the two teams set foot on the court. Should the club continue to excel on both sides of the ball, the rest of the league better start planning accordingly.

Up next for the reeling Magic will be a date with the while the visiting Hawks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
