Ken Suguira of the AJC gives us an update on Joe Johnson's rehab:

Johnson has begun rehabilitating his right elbow, which required surgery last week to remove a loose body. Johnson said he has been doing about 90 minutes daily of rehab, mostly resistance work to improve flexibility and strength.

"It's coming along pretty good," he said. "We've got a ways to go, though."

Suguira on the Hawks slow start but strong finish

After the 1-for-12 start, the Hawks made 32 of their last 61 shots against the Pacers, who had started the night leading the NBA in field-goal percentage defense at 42.7 percent. 

Coach Drew on Josh Smith:

 "I’ve got to stay on him about shot selection, but the thing with Josh, there’s some things you’ve got to live with and I’m willing to live with them when he’s giving me the energy and effort defensively and he’s still making great plays and great decisions on the offensive end."

Pacers coach Jim O'Brien on the Hawks defense:

"It's a credit to their defense," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said. "They really defended us well."

No updated as of yet on Josh Powell's sprained knee. We will update that situation as soon as some info becomes available.
