April 28 (Bloomberg) -- The Los Angeles Lakers beat the New Orleans Hornets 98-80 to advance to the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Also today, the Atlanta Hawks beat the Orlando Magic 84-81 to seal a first-round series win. The Hawks will play the Chicago Bulls for a place in the Eastern Conference finals, while the Lakers will continue their quest for a third straight NBA championship against the Dallas Mavericks or Portland Trail Blazers.

Portland needs a home win against Dallas in tonight’s other playoff game to avoid a 4-2 series defeat.
