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:
--G Mike Bibby finally seemed to regain a rhythm in the first half against the Heat, swishing shots from deep while also piling up four early assists. Bibby's scoring numbers during the trip were respectable but he didn't play particularly well, and certainly not well enough to propel his team to a win before Friday night.
--F Marvin Williams saw his shooting woes continue into the first half Friday night. Including the loss to the Spurs and the first half against the Heat, he shot 2-for-12 from the floor. His sudden slump makes no sense, considering Williams had been the Hawks' most consistent shooter all season.
--G Mo Evans provided the first-half spark the Hawks needed against the Heat. He only scored six points and grabbed one rebound, but he was all over the floor in the 10 minutes he played. It was the kind of game-changing energy that the Hawks lacked in recent games.
