Tonight's Orlando Magic Game: at Atlanta Hawks

With four new players in tow and ready to play, the Orlando Magic take on the Atlanta Hawks tonight at Philips Arena. It's the start of a new era in Magic basketball, and the schedule may never get more difficult than this. Atlanta's a tough team with a lot of continuity, and after tonight, the Magic have three games in five nights against some of the league's elite. No one knows what to expect from the newcomers overall, and especially not tonight. Gilbert Arenas, Earl Clark, Jason Richardson, and Hedo Turkoglu haven't even practiced yet. If Orlando can gut out a win against a sound, if not underachieving, Hawks squad, on the road? A huge victory, considering the circumstances.
