ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Josh Childress, Forward Jeremy Richardson, Center Zaza Pachulia, Forward Solomon Jones, Guard Salim Stoudamire, Guard Mario West, Guard Speedy Claxton (injured).PLAYER NOTES:
--Center Al Horford went toe-to-toe with Kevin Garnett and the rest of the Celtics' big guns all night and did his usual.
--Guard Acie Law IV didn't play for the fourth straight game, a puzzling move with the Hawks needing something off the bench.
--Center Zaza Pachulia wasn't much of a factor against the Celtics and isn't a particularly good matchup against them in the long run.
--Guard Mike Bibby had his way early but struggled like the rest of the Hawks to make shots with the game on the line.
