The Orlando Magic beat the Atlanta Hawks four straight games, sending a very dominated Hawks team to their season’s retirement.  Magic finished the Hawks, 98-84 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. They now await for the second round winner of the Boston Celtics-Cleveland Cavaliers best of seven series.

“When you want to show your dominance, it’s definitely in playoff time,” said Vince Carter of Magic who ended Game 4 with 22 points. “I think we’ve done that.”

The Cavaliers and Celtics are tied at two games apiece with Game 5 today in Cleveland, and pressure could be too early for the Cavs because this maybe the the MVP, Lebron James last season with the Cavs. They need to concentrate on Rondo and Boston, and stop worrying about next season.

“For us, the focus has to be on right now,” Ferry said. “We can’t look at what is going to happen. That would be a mistake. Getting to this point is hard, and having an opportunity to go forward is hard. For us not to focus on this, and nothing else, would be inappropriate.”

“I was inconsistent sometimes coming off pick and rolls, if I wanted to shoot it or make passes, and I turned the ball over, which is uncharacteristic of myself,” the MVP said of Game 4. “But all in all we were aggressive as a team.”
