ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Flip Murray, Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Mario West, Guard Mo Evans, Guard Speedy Claxton, Forward Thomas Gardner, Forward Othello Hunter, Forward Solomon Jones, Forward/Center Zaza Pachulia, Center Randolph Morris.PLAYER NOTES:
--C Al Horford was a huge reason the Hawks were able to limit the Pistons to a 33 percent shooting effort the final three quarters. As the center of the Hawks' defensive system, Horford helped keep the Pistons scoreless for nearly eight minutes in the second half.
--F Marvin Williams left Saturday's game late with back spasms. Williams has had to deal with some untimely injuries this season that have forced him out of the lineup just when he appeared to be finding his groove.
--G Mike Bibby was back on his game against the Pistons. He shot 7-for-12 from the floor and finished with 17 points, four rebounds and three assists. It was a good night's work for an old man facing so many players with young legs on the other side.
--F Marvin Williams (back spasms) left Saturday's game.
