Hawks Injury Report: No reported issues although Johan Petro is still working his way back from a sore back

Clippers Injury Report: Chauncey Billups (Achilles), Grant Hill (Knee) and Trey Thompkins (Knee) are all out for Los Angeles.

Hawks player(s) to watch: Jeff Teague finished with 20 points and 11 assists in Friday's loss to the Miami Heat. On Sunday he matches up with Chris Paul who is the measuring stick for all point guards in the league. Paul is averaging 17.5 points and 10.7 assists through six games this season.

Clippers player(s) to watch: Jamal Crawford is averaging a team-best 21.8 points per game for the Clippers and the Hawks have to be ready whenever he checks into the game. Crawford has been red hot hitting 53 percent of his shots from the floor including 42 percent shooting from three-point range. Those percentages are unlikely to stay that high but Atlanta knows all to well the kinds of numbers Crawford can put up when he is going good.
