From the Hawks

The Hawks are coming off a 96-94 loss at the Magic Sunday in the first of back-to-back games. … The loss snapped a three-game win streak overall and a four-game win streak versus the Magic. … Korver needs four 3-pointers to tie Chauncey Billups (1,830) for eighth in NBA/ABA history ... Horford needs eight defensive rebounds to tie Dominique Wilkins (3588) for fourth in Atlanta history.

From the Magic

Vucevic’s buzzer-beater against the Hawks Sunday was his second game-winner of the season. He hit a game-winner against the Lakers in November. … The Magic have lost six straight road games. … Payton had a season-high 12 assists in Sunday’s win.
