Hawks vs. Suns Preview
The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Phoenix Suns tonight on the road at the US Airways Center. This will be the fourth game of a six-game road trip for the Hawks. This will also be the first of two meetings between these two teams this regular season. With a win tonight, the Hawks would improve to 34-23 on the season, 4-0 on their road trip, and 1-0 in the regular season series with the Suns. 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) is listed as out. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is not underestimating this Phoenix team. They are tied for the worst record in the Western Conference, but they are coming off a huge win against the league-leading San Antonio Spurs, so they can beat good teams. If the Hawks can play their hardest so they don't have a letdown game, I think they can get a W tonight to remain undefeated on the road trip.
