Hawks Magic Number Update

It's been a while, and tonight's game was actually a "big" one. Had the Hawks beaten Charlotte, this might actually be a race. It went into OT, but the Hawks knew how to seal the deal.

With the Hawks' loss tonight, New Orleans is eliminated.

Now, the Hawks magic number is merely 2, with 5 games to go.

If the Hawks lose on Wednesday in Charlotte, they clinch the most ping pong balls in the NBA Draft lottery. Of course, this is worth less than nothing, since both the Knicks and the Lakers are in the lottery.
