Hawks vs. Bucks Preview
The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight at home at Philips Arena. This will be the second of four meetings between these two teams this regular season. With a win tonight, the Hawks would improve to 38-30 on the season and 2-0 in the regular season series with the Bucks. The probable starters for the Hawks tonight are Jeff Teague and Devin Harris in the backcourt, Kyle Korver and Josh Smith at the two forward positions, and Al Horford at center. Louis Williams (torn ACL, right knee) and Zaza Pachulia (sore right Achilles) are listed as out. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is pressuring Milwaukee's high-scoring backcourt trio of Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis, and J.J. Redick. If the Hawks can interrupt the flow of Milwaukee's offense by disrupting their backcourt game, I think they can get a W tonight against yet another team in the race for playoff positioning in the East.
