Smith's 22 leads Hawks past Magic

ATLANTA (AP) - Josh Smith scored 22 points and pulled down 12 rebounds to help the Atlanta Hawks snap a three-game skid with an 83-78 victory over the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.

J.J. Redick finished with 13 points and Dwight Howard had 12 for the Magic, who had won two straight and six of seven.

Hawks leading scorer Joe Johnson missed his second straight game with left knee tendinitis, but Atlanta got 36 points from their reserves, including Jannero Pargo with 15 and Willie Green with 14.

The Magic recovered from a 10-point second quarter by scoring 25 in the third to pull within three heading into the final period.

Howard's lay-in cut the lead to 69-68 with 4:42 left, but the Magic never got any closer.
