Hawks Injury Report: Craig Claxton will not play despite his best effort to not suck. 

New York Injury Report: Nate Robinson is probably out with an ankle injury. Considering Mr. Robinson does everything but backhand the hawks across the face, I am not overly sad about this development. Eddie Curry is also out.

Blogging With the Enemy: Poasting and Toasting

Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Chris Duhon and his stupid three pointers.

Still New blog development: Blatantly stealing from Bullets Forever, I am instituting a new feature here at Peachtree Hoops. The Game Thread Comment of the Game! Good luck to win the second ever and still very uncoveted crown.

The Hawks win if more than two of these are true:

Larry Hughes takes more shots than David Lee.

Marvin Williams drives to the basket ten times.

Al Hoford ends the first half with less fouls than David Lee.

Josh Smith makes more than 60% of his free throws and shoots more than five.

Joe realizes he weighs 40 pounds more than Larry Hughes.

Mike Bibby's makes more three pointers than Chris Duhon.

See you in the comments. Go Hawks!
