Maurice Evans scored 27 points and six of his Orlando teammates also scored in double figures, leading the Magic to a 121-105 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night. Evans scored 23 points in the second half as both playoff-bound teams substituted liberally, knowing the game had no impact on their postseason positioning.
Orlando already clinched the Southeast Division and will be the No. 3 seed in the East. The Hawks are headed to the playoffs for the first time since 1999 as the eighth-seeded team. The Hawks led 55-51 at halftime, but the Magic quickly took control after the break. Evans gave Orlando an 82-70 lead with 3 minutes left in the third quarter.
