ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Josh Childress, Forward Jeremy Richardson, Center Zaza Pachulia, Forward Solomon Jones, Guard Salim Stoudamire, Guard Mario West.PLAYER NOTES:
--Center Zaza Pachulia played one of his better halves of the season but barely saw the floor after halftime.
--Forward Josh Smith had it going early but the Hawks went away from him completely in the second half.
--Guard Acie Law IV was another reserve that saw limited action against the Bulls, a tactical error of the highest order with Mike Bibby playing 43 minutes.
--Guard Salim Stoudamire would have been the ideal late-game threat on the floor with the game close and the Hawks needing another shooter. But he never took off his warm-ups.
