[ORLANDO] — The Orlando Magic played host to the Atlanta Hawks last night and the homeside took care of business. A 105-86 win has the Magic and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Orlando's record up to 22-38 on the season, while the loss drags Atlanta's down to 32-26. Though a win's a win and Magic fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Elfrid Payton leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 15 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals in 28 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.

Joining Payton in the winning effort was Nikola Vucevic. Had it not been for Vucevic rounding out the Magic's attack with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 1 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Orlando's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Hawks, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Magic will settle for the upper hand in this one.

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