Recap


Hawks 97, Magic 88: Reserve Ivan Johnson tied a career high with 21 points to go with 10 rebounds and host Atlanta pulled away in the second half to complete a four-game season sweep of Orlando.

Josh Smith added 21 points and nine rebounds and Devin Harris scored 13 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter for the shorthanded Hawks, who were without leading scorer and rebounder Al Horford along with DeShawn Stevenson and John Jenkins. Atlanta moved into fifth place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of Chicago.

Beno Udrih had 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and Nikola Vucevic returned from a five-game absence with 17 points and 15 boards for the Magic, who fell to 1-9 in their last 10 games.

The game was tied at 55-55 before Atlanta reserves Anthony Tolliver and Shelvin Mack scored five points apiece in a 12-5 run at the end of the third quarter to give the Hawks a 67-60 edge.

After Orlando cut the lead to three, Johnson sandwiched a pair of three-point plays around a 10-point, 98-second binge by Harris to extend Atlanta's lead to 83-69 with just over seven minutes remaining.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Hawks swingman Kyle Korver was 1-of-3 from long range, extending his streak with a least one 3-pointer to 67 games - one shy of tying Reggie Miller for the fourth-longest run in NBA History. ... Udrih started in place of PG Jameer Nelson, who sat out with a sprained right ankle sustained in Friday's win over Washington. ... Hawks backup C Zaza Pachulia, who has not played since March 3, will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a partial tear of his Achilles. Recovery is expected to take six months.
