Hawks Take 2-1 Lead Over Magic: The Atlanta Hawks beat the Orlando Magic 88-84 Friday to take a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series. Jamal Crawford hit a three-pointer with 5.7 seconds left to seal the win. "I think Jamal Crawford's shot was lucky and an angel had to be sitting next to him when he let that one go," said Magic center Dwight Howard. Game 4 is Sunday in Atlanta.

I didn't hear Jamal call out "bank".

Make up your mind, Dwight, was the shot lucky or was it ordained?

I've seen the Hawks hit too many "lucky" shots for it to be luck anymore. At some point you just have to say "That's skill son."

I'm really hoping I was supposed to read this in Mark Jackson's voice and that it's completely sarcastic.

This is 3-1 and back to Orlando. I'm not convinced that it's over yet. Not because Orlanda is so good but because Atlanta is weird in the head.
