The Hawks shot 42.7 percent, but capitalized on 19 Magic turnovers for 29 points.
Hedo Turkoglu led Orlando with 22 points, while Dwight Howard had 14 points and 18 rebounds. Howard was just 6-of-14 from the free throw line.

Dallas shot 54 percent from the field.
Zach Randolph scored 24 points, all in the second half, and grabbed 11 rebounds, for the Knicks, who lost their third straight. New York cut a 23-point deficit to single digits in the fourth quarter.
As usual with the Knicks, basketball was only part of the story.

Udonis Haslem added 21 points, Shaquille O'Neal had 18 and Dorell Wright 16 as the Heat put six players in double figures and shot 59 percent to win consecutive games for the first time this season.
The Suns made five 3-pointers, three by Grant Hill and two by Steve Nash, in the final 1:10 but could get no closer than 111-108.
Hill, Raja Bell, Shawn Marion and Amare Stoudemire all scored 19 points for Phoenix, which lost its second straight to a team with one of the NBA's worst records. The Suns were beaten at Minnesota on Saturday.
