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 Zaza Pachulia turned in a huge performance off the bench with six points and 10 rebounds, his double-digit rebounding effort his most significant contribution.
--F Josh Smith played 30 minutes and grabbed just one rebound, which isn't sufficient by any standard. It appeared Smith had shed that nasty habit during the Hawks' seven-game home stand. But he was back to his watch-and-react (late) ways against the Timberwolves.
--C Al Horford struggled a bit defensively against Kevin Love but more than made up for it with 12 points and 13 rebounds, and some dominant plays late in the game to help the Hawks seal the win.
--F Marvin Williams is out indefinitely with a lower back injury.
--G Acie Law IV missed his second straight game with a lower-back problem. Law has back spasms and may miss the entire week.
