The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Phoenix Suns 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 36-29 on the season and 1-1 in the regular season series with the Suns. The probable starters for the Hawks tonight are Devin Harris and Dahntay Jones in the backcourt, Anthony Tolliver and Al Horford at the two forward spots, and Johan Petro at center. Louis Williams (torn ACL, right knee) and Zaza Pachulia (sore right Achilles) are listed as out. Josh Smith (sprained left knee) and Jeff Teague (sprained left ankle) are listed as questionable, but it's not a good sign that they aren't in the probable starters. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is points in the paint. The Suns will be without Marcin Gortat, so the Hawks have to take advantage of their lack of an inside presence. The Hawks guards need to penetrate or dish it to the bigs inside. If the Hawks can post a big number in points in the paint, I think they can get a W tonight to avenge their loss in the Valley of the Sun.
