In an 81-72 home win over the Magic on November 19th, Atlanta (12-6) received 15 points and nine rebounds from Al Horford, 14 points from Louis Williams, nine points and eight rebounds from Ivan Johnson, nine points and seven assists from Jeff Teague, eight points and 11 rebounds from Zaza Pachulia, and eight points to go with a game-high three steals from Devin Harris.

Orlando (8-12) got 11 points and seven rebounds from Glen Davis, while Moe Harkless, Jameer Nelson, Josh McRoberts, and E'Twaun Moore all tallied eight points, with Harkless adding eight boards.

"We are a young team that is learning through experience, from the rookies to the coaches," Davis said. "'Together' – it’s what we say every day in the huddle. We’re starting to live it every single day now, and being on the road brings it together even more, because now you're in a building with 20,000 other people, and they’re against you. That mentality has to spread, not only away, but at home."

Wednesday's game begins at 7:00 pm on FS Florida.
