The Orlando Magic return to the City Beautiful on Saturday to take on the Atlanta Hawks, completing a home-and-home, back-to-back set against a surprisingly strong foe.

The second tipoff between Orlando and Atlanta in as many days is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out, Atlanta's last time out, and the last meeting: The Magic led the Hawks by as much as 12 points in the second half Friday, but Atlanta stormed back to take a 87-81 victory in an ugly contest. Threes made the difference for the Hawks, who went 8-of-16 from beyond the arc in the second half; Orlando, in contrast, shot just 4-of-13 from deep after intermission.

Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 23 points and eight rebounds. Victor Oladipo tallied an efficient 21 for Orlando, which got double-doubles from Tobias Harris and Kyle O`Quinn.
