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.PLAYER NOTES:
--F Solomon Jones went back to his role as a spot player with Josh Smith back in the lineup. Someone's minutes had to suffer with Smith's return. Some nights it will be Jones and other nights it will probably be Zaza Pachulia that has to sacrifice, an unappealing prospect, no doubt, to both players.
--G Mo Evans will probably the first guy on the floor for pre-practice shooting drills. Evans missed all seven of his shot attempts against the Grizzlies and struggled mightily to do much of anything else while trying to figure out how his aim could be so off.
--F Marvin Williams put together another solid night, scoring 16 points and knocking down two of his five three-point shot attempts, while also battling Rudy Gay on the defensive end. He matched Gay's point total and generally kept the Grizzlies' best player in check the entire night.
