ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Mo Evans, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Flip Murray, Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Mario West, Guard Speedy Claxton, Forward Thomas Gardner, Forward Othello Hunter, Forward Solomon Jones, Forward/center Zaza Pachulia, Center Randolph Morris.PLAYER NOTES:
--G Mo Evans started in place of injured small forward Marvin Williams but didn't finish the game in his place. Flip Murray is the closer coach Mike Woodson prefers, mostly because his dribble-and-drive game is far more dangerous.
--F Solomon Jones says he doesn't need much time to contribute. That's why he was smiling after his seven minutes of action netted him three points and three rebounds. He said he's prepared to be the Hawks' most efficient performer the rest of the way if that's what it takes to see minutes.
--C Zaza Pachulia scored seven points and grabbed seven rebounds and played physically against a tough Hornets frontline that has dominated other teams' big men. Pachulia continues to prove his worth with big performances in big games.
--F Marvin Williams is out indefinitely with a lower back injury.
