Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- For one game at least, Steve Francis ended the Orlando Magic's losing ways. The Atlanta Hawks' show no signs of subsiding. Francis scored 11 of his 30 points in the first quarter and added 10 assists and six rebounds as the Magic jumped out to a huge lead and cruised to a 109-102 triumph over the abysmal Hawks, who have lost nine in a row. Rookie Dwight Howard added 17 points and 11 rebounds and Grant Hill chipped in 16 and 10 for Orlando, which had lost 10 of its previous 11 contests to fall three games out of the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. "It's always good to get a victory," Francis said. "Every single game is like a playoff series. Hopefully this can start something for us." But the Hawks - who have dropped 22 of 23 - once again became the perfect opponent for a struggling team, falling behind, 24-9, on a jumper by Francis with barely 7 1/2 minutes into the game. "We came in and wanted to bury them from the beginning," Howard said. "I think it started with our defense. Even though we relaxed during the game, it still feels good to get the win." "We played really well early," Magic interim coach Chris Jent said. "Later we fell apart a little bit, but I thought we played a solid game. The first five minutes are so important in games like this and we did a nice job early." Orlando opened a 32-15 cushion after one quarter and led by as many as 21 points in the second period before settling for a 62-48 halftime advantage. "Teams are trying to come out and blitz us," Hawks center Obinna Ekezie said. "We cannot allow teams to do that to us. We can't get down 15-20 points in the first half ... especially when you are playing against guys like Steve Francis and Grant Hill." "We look up and we are down by 10 or 12 points, said rookie Hawks forward Josh Childress, who had 14 points and seven rebounds. "We cannot play like that and expect to win." Atlanta got within 10 points on several occasions early in the third quarter before Orlando rebuilt its lead to 85-67 entering the final period. The Magic, who improved to 2-4 under Jent, led by as many as 23 points in the fourth quarter before the Hawks made the final score respectable. "It's tough when you're ahead by that much early in the game," Francis said. "You start to get a little lethargic with the basketball. That showed up a little bit, but for the most part we kept our composure and were able to come away with the victory." Rookie Josh Smith contributed 14 points and five rebounds for Atlanta, which missed 17 of its 23 first-quarter shots and made only 36-of-88 attempts overall (41 percent). Magic rookie point guard Jameer Nelson left the game late in the first quarter after colliding with Hawks guard Tony Delk. He is listed as day-to-day with a strained left rib cage. "We can't play like we did and not expect to struggle," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. "We were really flat (early). Our defensive output was just horrendous."
