The Hawks led by as many 23 points in the second half as they returned to the .500 mark. Clint Capela contributed 11 rebounds, seven points, four assists and two blocks, and Cam Reddish went 3-for-6 from beyond the arc and had 13 points.

The Hawks, who went 16-for-16 at the foul line as a team, had five players score in double figures. Lou Williams scored eight of his 14 points during Atlanta's 37-point second period, and Danilo Gallinari contributed 10 points off the bench.

Young made only one 3-pointer (1-for-8), but he shot 10-for-14 inside the arc and made all five of his free-throw attempts. The Hawks, who entered Wednesday tied for first in the league in 3-point shooting percentage (38.3), finished 11-for-31 from long range.

Orlando's losing streak reached six games, while the Magic dropped to 2-9 at home.

Terrence Ross had 18 points and a career-high eight assists and Moe Wagner chipped in a season-high 19 points off the bench for Orlando, while starting guard R.J. Hampton hit three triples and scored 15 points. Franz Wagner had 10 points and Wendell Carter Jr. posted nine points and 15 rebounds.

Cole Anthony was limited to seven points on 3-for-14 shooting for Orlando, which is 0-5 this season wearing its new orange-themed Nike NBA City Edition uniform. The Magic also played their 14th straight game allowing an opponent to score 100 or more points.

The Magic used their sixth different starting lineup this season with center Mo Bamba and guard Gary Harris sidelined by injury -- Bamba suffered a right ankle sprain against the Los Angeles Lakers three days earlier, while Harris was a late scratch on Wednesday due to left hamstring tightness -- and the Hawks capitalized.

Atlanta's starting five outscored its Orlando counterparts 47-19 en route to a 64-50 halftime lead.

Young scored 13 first-quarter points as the Hawks took a 27-25 lead. Atlanta, which again played without shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle), went ahead 57-42 at the 3:10 mark of the second quarter on Young's layup.
