UPDATE: Atlanta Hawks Push Milwauke Bucks to Game 7, Giving Orlando Magic Even More Rest

The Atlanta Hawks used the strength of a 29-11 third quarter to take Game 6 of their playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks, 83-69, setting the stage for the decisive Game 7 in Atlanta this Sunday. The Orlando Magic will begin their second-round series against the Game 7 winner on Tuesday at the earliest, which means they will have had at least 8 days off since closing out the Charlotte Bobcats in a four-game sweep.

As Eddy explained here, the Magic tend to play well when they have a lot of rest.

Orlando won the season series against both teams, taking 3 of 4 from Atlanta and sweeping all 3 games from the Bucks.

Tickets for the second round, priced starting at $18, are available at, the Amway Arena box office, the Orlando Magic ticket office at RDV SportsPlex (Monday through Friday), and at Ticketmaster outlets. Note that Ticketmaster outlets accept cash only.
