Hawks vs. Grizzlies Preview
The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight at home at Philips Arena. This will be the second and final game between these two teams this regular season. This will also be the second game of a back-to-back set for the Hawks. The probable starters for the Hawks tonight are Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver in the backcourt, DeShawn Stevenson and Josh Smith at the two forward positions, and Al Horford at center. Devin Harris (sore left foot) and Zaza Pachulia (sore right Achilles) are listed as day-to-day. Louis Williams (torn ACL, right knee) is listed as out. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is denying the ball inside. The Grizzlies are seventh in the NBA in points in the paint per game. If the Hawks can keep the ball out of the paint (on the defensive end of the floor), I think they can get a W tonight to sweep the regular season series.
