Orlando Magic host the Atlanta Hawks in playoff push

The Orlando Magic are making a push for the NBA Playoffs. 

The Magic have three games left in their season. They host the Atlanta Hawks (29-50) Friday night before heading on the road for games against Boston (47-32) Sunday and the Charlotte Hornets (36-42) next Wednesday. 

The Magic defeated the New York Knicks 114-100 Wednesday night. That win and Miami Heat's loss to the Boston Celtics, propelled the Magic into the eighth seed in the NBA's Eastern Conference playoff picture.
