After thigh injury, E'Twaun Moore returns to the Magic's rotation

All hands on deck for the Orlando Magic.

The Magic entered their game Sunday night against the Atlanta Hawks fully healthy.

Not only did Arron Afflalo start after he rolled his left ankle two nights earlier, but reserve guard E'Twaun Moore returned to the playing rotation after he missed three consecutive games because of a bruised right thigh.

Moore entered the game with 3:03 left in the first quarter. About two minutes later, he finished off a fastbreak with a layup as he absorbed a foul by Pero Antic. Moore made the ensuing free throw to put the Magic ahead 26-17.

"I'm very happy," Moore said. "Seeing my team go out there and compete, I definitely missed that and being a part of that. So it's fun to get back."

To make room for Moore on the active roster, the Magic placed reserve big man Solomon Jones on the inactive list.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn looked forward to having Moore back because of Moore's versatility on defense. Moore found himself occasionally defending Hawks point guard Jeff Teague and shooting guard Lou Williams.

Moore played almost 12 minutes. He was rusty, scoring three points and committing two turnovers.

Korver's streak continues
Hawks shooting guard Kyle Korver extended his NBA record for most consecutive regular-season games with at least one made 3-pointer to 100 games on Sunday.

Korver continued his streak by making a 3 with 9:52 remaining in the second quarter.

He hasn't just eclipsed the previous record-holder's mark. Korver has shattered it.

"An incredible feat," Vaughn said. "I think what he does to you is, because everyone knows that he's made the consecutive amount of 3s, he's on your scouting report. You have to be accountable for where he is on the floor, and just because of that reason, now Jeff Teague has a little bit more operating room on the pick-and-roll.

"So his ability to shoot the basketball is a luxury for a coach. It gives you space on the floor."

The previous record-holder was Dana Barros, who made at least one 3 in 89 consecutive games.

Former Magic swingman Dennis Scott ranks fourth on the all-time list. Scott made a trey in 78 straight games.

Korver finished Sunday with eight points, including six points on a pair of made 3-pointers.

Honoring Ayón
As a part of their 25th-anniversary celebration, the Magic honored Hawks big man Gustavo Ayón with a video tribute during a break midway through the first quarter.

Ayón played in 43 games for the Magic last season before he, J.J. Redick and Ish Smith were traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for Tobias Harris, Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih in mid-February.

Ayón's playing time with the Hawks likely will increase because Al Horford will miss significant time due to a torn pectoral muscle.

"Gustavo is somebody that we really like," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.

"Keeping him healthy is really going to help us. I think the energy that he plays with and the activity [helps us]. He's another really high basketball IQ guy. He really knows how to play. Especially in the system and the style we're playing, I think he can really help us."

• The Magic scored 20 of their first 35 points in the paint.

• Orlando entered halftime shooting 54.8 percent from the field.

• The game drew an announced crowd of 15,415 people. The total included a vocal Hawks cheering section at the base of Section 213 in the upper deck. Read his blog at and follow him on Twitter at @JoshuaBRobbins.
