Hawks come back to hand Magic first preseason loss
Dwight Howard was the star for the Magic, scoring 27 pts, along with 10 boards, 6 assists and 3 blocks. Keyon Dooling added 15 pts. Jameer Nelson saw his first action this preseason and scored 12 pts in 25 minutes but only had 1 assist. Hedo Turkoglu and Carlos Arroyo added 5 each in their first action also of the preseason. Darko had his worst game so far with just 4 pts on 1 of 8 shooting, and also suffered a hard fall and went to the locker room favoring the right side of his back and hip. Joe Johnson (27 pts) and Zaza Pachulia (19 pts) led Atlanta.
At least we got some injured players back this game. Let's hope everything is alright with Darko after his hard fall. Dwight continues to show his offensive improvement.
