ATLANTA DELIVERS FIRST PLAYOFF UPSET
Fri, 29 Apr 2011 05:39 PM EDT

Once again squaring off at a playoff series… this time it was another result. The Atlanta Hawks are moving on in the postseason, blasting off the team that thrashed them so badly a year ago. Hawks’ star Joe Johnson had 23 points and came up with a colossal offensive rebound, leading Atlanta past Orlando 84-81 in Game 6 Thursday night to eliminate the Magic in the opening round.

Jason Collins and Zaza Pachulia combined for six baskets in six games against Orlando, but the duo’s defense was critical to the Hawks’ upset win. The Hawks, who came up victorious from the series 4-2, moved ahead to the next round for the third time in a row, this time against the top-seeded Bulls. Game 1 is Monday night in the United Center. Basketball scores.

On the other hand, Orlando heads into a doubtful offseason after its earliest playoff dismissal since 2007. Nobody knows what the outlook would be for the Magic’s best player, Dwight Howard now that things have been a little off since they made it to the finals a couple of years ago. D-12 can become a free agent after next season but may be heading out to, now that the Magic appear to be moving in the wrong way. Basketball odds.

The 5th seeded Hawks finally got vengeance for last year’s upsetting sweep at the hands of the Magic in which they were outscored by 25 points per game. “What better recovery than to play them again?” said Jamal Crawford, who hit two big free throws after Johnson swatted him the ball. “We were up to the challenge.”

What were the odds? A fifth-seeded team beating a fourth-seeded one, overcoming home-court advantage without even forcing a Game 7! Basketball spreads.
