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:
--F Solomon Jones started in place of Al Horford and didn't deliver the type of performance the Hawks had hoped. He managed just six points and five rebounds in the relief effort, nowhere near the output it would have taken to push the Hawks over the top on this night.
--G Flip Murray's shooting line was just for 4-for-13. His 13 points off the bench was about the only real production the Hawks got from their reserves. And on a night when Michael Beasley went for 22, it just wasn't enough.
--C Zaza Pachulia didn't get loose again like he did in Game 4 or even Game 5, and it cost the Hawks dearly. They needed someone to help slow the Heat down inside, and Pachulia wasn't able to make that happen.
--Al Horford suited up but did not play with the sprained right ankle that he suffered in Game 5.
