ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Zaza Pachulia. Bench -- Guard Flip Murray, Guard Mario West, Guard Mo Evans, Guard Thomas Gardner, Forward Othello Hunter, Forward Solomon Jones, Center Randolph Morris.PLAYER NOTES:
--F Solomon Jones played big minutes off the bench, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds in 15 minutes. His contribution was much needed with C Zaza Pachulia playing just over 22 minutes and the Bucks playing more small ball than usual without C Andrew Bogut in the lineup.
--F Othello Hunter saw his most extensive action of the season and didn't disappoint, snagging three rebounds in garbage time. But the way he played is what had to impress the coaches. While the game got raggedy, he was the one guy on the floor doing what he was coached to do.
--G Thomas Gardner keeps showing up in the box score. He seemed like the logical person to go back to the end of the bench with F Marvin Williams returning to the lineup. But he played 10 minutes against the Bucks, finishing with two points and two rebounds.
--C Al Horford is day-to-day with a bone bruise in his right knee.
--G Acie Law is out 7-10 days with a right quadriceps contusion.
