The Atlanta Hawks are flying high after winning 10 of their last 12 games while the Charlotte Bobcats are sinking fast after a good start to the season. Charlotte has lost nine straight games and are now 7-14 overall. The Hawks will be playing in the second game of a back-to-back and their third in four nights overall.
The Hawks defeated the Orlando Magic 86-80 on Wednesday behind double-doubles from Josh Smith and Al Horford. Kyle Korver returned to action after missing five games and scored nine points off the bench. Larry Drew rested DeShawn Stevenson against the Magic but he is expected to play tonight against the Bobcats.
After a surprising start to the season, the Bobcats are reeling and it all starts defensively. Charlotte is allowing opponents to score over 108 points per game during their losing streak.
