ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Jamal Crawford, Guard Jeff Teague, Forward Mo Evans, Forward Joe Smith, Forward/Center Zaza Pachulia. PLAYER NOTES:
--G Jeff Teague didn't seem at all fazed by the moment. He certainly wasn't shy (he took four more shots than Jamal Crawford and finished with five points, four assists and three rebounds).
"He looked comfortable out there," Marvin Williams said. "I like that about him. He's fearless."
--G Jamal Crawford seemed a bit perplexed at his limited role against the Pacers. But he should expect his role to expand with the Washingon Wizards coming to town Friday.
--F Joe Smith looked good for not having played much in the preseason. Smith's minutes will also increase with time.
