Hawks vs. Wizards Preview
The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Washington Wizards tonight on the road. This will be the second game of a back-to-back set for the Hawks. This will also be the fourth and final game of the Hawks' regular season series with the Wizards. With a win tonight, the Hawks would improve to 22-14 on the season, 4-0 in the regular season series with the Wizards, and 2-0 in their back-to-back set. The probable starters for the Hawks tonight are Jeff Teague and Devin Harris in the backcourt, and Kyle Korver, Josh Smith, and Al Horford in the frontcourt. Anthony Morrow (sore lower back) is listed as questionable for tonight's game. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is not underestimating this Wizards team. Yes, they only have five wins this season, but two of them have been against the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder. Also, they are expected to have point guard John Wall back in the lineup, which will almost surely give them an extra boost. If the Hawks don't play down to the Wizards, I think they can get the W tonight to sweep the regular season series with these division rivals.
