Scoreboard Watching will give Orlando Magic fans a heads-up on which games with potential playoff implications to pay attention to.
This afternoon, the Orlando Magic will finally learn whom they'll face in the second round of the NBA playoffs as the fourth-seeded Atlanta Hawks and fifth-seeded Milwaukee Bucks square off in Game 7 at Philips Arena. Atlanta won the opening two games of the series before Milwaukee took the next three to seize control. But the Bucks blew a chance to clinch on their home court in Game 6 with a prolonged third-quarter offensive drought. Now, they'll have to win a Game 7 on the road for the first time in franchise history. Also, the Hawks have never lost a Game 7 at home. The odds appear to be in their favor. But that was the case in Game 5, which Milwaukee stole after Atlanta's offense devolved into a series of one-on-one possessions that ended in clank after clank.
No matter who wins today's game, the Magic will kick off their next series on Tuesday. Here's the schedule.
