The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at home at Philips Arena.  This will be the third game of a five-game homestand for the Hawks.  With a win tonight, the Hawks would improve to 10-4 on the season, 3-0 on their homestand, 1-0 in the regular season series with the Cavaliers, and extend their winning streak to seven consecutive games.  The probable starters for the Hawks are Jeff Teague and Devin Harris in the backcourt, DeShawn Stevenson and Josh Smith at the two forward positions, and Al Horford at center.  Kyle Korver (back spasms) is out.  Anthony Morrow (quad contusion) is a game-time decision.  I think the key to a W tonight for the Hawks is boxing out.  Anderson Varejao is currently the league leader in rebounds per game, so the Hawks have to contain him on the glass.  If the Hawks can win the rebounding battle, I think they can get a W tonight at home.
