    MACON, Ga. (AP) -- Al Harrington had 23 points and eight rebounds, and Antoine Walker scored 14 points to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 96-88 preseason victory Wednesday night over the Orlando Magic.

    The Magic (0-2) featured marquee rookies Dwight Howard, the first overall selection in the NBA draft, and Jameer Nelson, the 2003-04 national college player of the year.

    Howard fouled out after committing six turnovers while scoring 8 points in 25 minutes. Nelson scored 2 points while committing five fouls in 25 minutes.

    Steve Francis scored 18 points -- making 10 of 15 free throws -- and Stacey Augmon added 12 points for the Magic, who went more than seven minutes without a basket near the end of the game.

    Mike Woodson made his debut as Hawks coach, bringing with him the defensive schemes that gave last season's NBA championship to the Detroit Pistons. He was an assistant to Larry Brown in Detroit.

    The Magic, who had the worst record in the league last season at 21-61, made six of their first seven shots, but went 9-for-30 to finish the first half. The Hawks (1-0) missed seven of their first 10 shots, then went 18-of-33 to lead 51-49 at halftime.

    Orlando, playing for the second consecutive night, did not use Grant Hill, who played 16 minutes against Memphis on Tuesday. He did participate in a morning practice, but Magic coach Johnny Davis is taking a cautious approach, given Hill's recurring ankle injury.
