For the second consecutive season, the Atlanta Hawks were swept out of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. After being ousted in a four-game sweep by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2009, the Hawks were eliminated by the Orlando Magic in four games this season.
Coming into the series, it was widely thought that this was a bad matchup for the Hawks.
And boy was it.
The Magic defeated the Hawks by an average of 25.25 points per game, winning by margins of 43, 14, 30 and 14 points.
