Article Summary:

While the Magic held the lead for most of the second quarter, the Hawks kept pace in the thanks to free throws. Collins shot 7-of-9 from the line in the second quarter alone but it was Danilo Gallinari who drew a number of fouls in the second quarter to put the Hawks in the bonus for over seven minutes of the second quarter. Once the Hawks took the lead at the end of the second quarter, they would hold it for the rest of the game, stretching the lead to double digits in the third quarter. “He’s always talking, if he makes a mistake he’s making it hard, he’s playing hard. He makes a big difference for our team when he was out there. That was a big momentum play for us. Little things like that you need for your team to win. He was making some very good momentum swings for us.”

Williams was instrumental in reestablishing the Hawks’ double-digit lead in the fourth quarter – a lead that wouldn’t fall below 10 points again as the Hawks – eventually – came through to secure the 129-111 victory.
