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's resolve is being tested during this early stretch of the season. Hawks coach Mike Woodson hasn't been nearly as generous with the minutes so far as was expected. But as long as Teague doesn't get discouraged he should be fine.
--G Mo Evans continues to play a timely role for the Hawks. His quick seven points in the final stages of the first half kept the Hawks within striking distance of the Knicks at halftime.
--C Zaza Pachulia didn't see the floor in the second half with Al Horford playing as well as he did. Don't expect that to happen again in Boston Friday night.
