The playoffs are finally here. The Orlando Magic will kick off the 2011 postseason by hosting the Atlanta Hawks.
The game will be shown nationally on ESPN locally on Sun Sports. As always, if you can’t watch the game, you can listen on the radio – in English on AM 580 WDBO and in Spanish on AM 1270 WRLZ.
Tip off from the Amway Center is scheduled for 7:00 pm EST.
The Line: Orlando – 8.5, 179.5u
J.J. Redick (abdomen) is listed as a game-time decision.
Update: Redick WILL play tonight.
The officials will be Scott Foster, Derrick Collins and Ron Garretson.
Limiting the impact of Jason Collins on Dwight is the key to advancement. Seriously.
