ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Flip Murray, Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Mario West, Guard Mo Evans, Forward Solomon Jones, Forward/Center Zaza Pachulia, Center Randolph Morris.PLAYER NOTES:
--C Solomon Jones was pressed into service yet again and responded well, finishing with five rebounds to go along with his five fouls. Now Jones has to figure out how to create space for himself on the low block and add some points to his nightly tally. He had several opportunities but wasn't in a position to take shots or finish around the rim.
--G Flip Murray continued his offensive assault against the Celtics, diving into the teeth of the Boston defense for lay-ups repeatedly. What Murray lacks in size, he more than makes up for in swagger, a nasty and relentless swagger that travels well.
--G Mike Bibby is answering all those questions about what he has left in his tank. He's had huge games (Chicago) and solid ones (Boston). But he's always at the helm of the Hawks' attack when he's on the floor. That much can't be disputed.
--F Josh Smith is out for two to four weeks (high ankle sprain) and could miss as many as 15 games.
