Vucevic leads Magic over Hawks 101-91

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) It might have been a little easier for the Orlando Magic on Sunday night if they could have made their shots.

Still, they got by with a big start from Nikola Vucevic to take an early lead and, despite shooting just 38.8 percent, held on for a 101-91 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

"It's important, late in the season, if your defense can win games for you. That's what happened tonight," Vucevic said. "You're going to have games not shooting well, but you find other ways to win. You can do it with defense."
