Atlanta looks to improve to 3-2 in Florida this weekend

NBA: Preseason-Detroit Pistons at Atlanta Hawks Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Hawks play their fifth preseason game tomorrow, facing the Orlando Magic in the Amway Center. Atlanta has had an inconsistent preseason so far, falling to 2-2 after a home loss to the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night.

The Magic have struggled as well so far, and hold a 1-3 record after losses to the Spurs, Cavaliers, and Grizzlies. More recently, though, Orlando beat Indiana 114-106. On Sunday, each team will be looking to get a win again against a division opponent.

Most importantly for Hawks fans, Paul Millsap appears to be ready to play. His appearance is by far the most important thing to watch on Sunday, since his extended absence so far has been somewhat concerning. A strong performance from Millsap on Sunday would be reassuring for both fans and the team.

The Hawks have battled several injuries so far this preseason, and hope to have Millsap healthy and ready to go for the season opener on October 27. There’s no indication that this target date should be in doubt, but seeing the power forward play tomorrow would still be reassuring.
