The Atlanta Hawks will take on the New Orleans Hornets tonight at home at Philips Arena. This will be the second and final meeting between these two teams this regular season. With a win tonight, the Hawks would improve to 28-21 on the season and sweep the regular season series with the Hornets 2-0. The probable starters for the Hawks tonight are Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver in the backcourt, Anthony Tolliver and Josh Smith at the two forward positions, and Al Horford at center. Louis Williams (torn ACL, right knee) is listed as out. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is pressuring Greivis Vasquez. The Hornets have so many offensive options, and he makes everything go. If the Hawks can keep him contained, it should disrupt their offense enough for a Hawks W.
