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 Mike Bibby's performance against the Wizards will go unnoticed by many. But his contributions (seven assists, six points, five rebounds and just one turnover) look much better after the fact.
--F Joe Smith is doing for veteran journeymen what George Foreman did for aging boxers years ago; he's showing that there is still life in those old bones. He had seven points and six rebounds.
--C Zaza Pachulia didn't play his best minutes against the Wizards. He didn't make a shot from the floor and didn't grab a single rebound. If not for his four free throws, he might have finished his night with donuts across the board. That can't happen against the Lakers or Trail Blazers.
