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 Acie Law IV, Guard Mario West, Guard Mo Evans, Forward Solomon Jones.PLAYER NOTES:
--G Flip Murray continues to heat up every time he hits the floor. He had nine points in his first eight minutes against the Knicks, doing everything an instant-offense reserve is supposed to do when called upon.
--G Mike Bibby's struggles will travel. His shot hasn't fallen anywhere in the last week or so. The rims at Madison Square Garden weren't any kinder to him than the ones in Miami or Atlanta earlier in the week.
--F Solomon Jones better continue to make the most of his time on the floor with C Al Horford inching closer and closer to getting back on the floor. Just like he did when F Josh Smith returned from a 12-game absence, Jones is the most likely candidate to return to his spot on the bench when Horford returns next week.
--C Al Horford is out day-to-day with a bone bruise in his right knee.
