Cavaliers Vs. Hawks Video Highlights: Atlanta Takes Down Cleveland 103-87

The Atlanta once again stuck with their smaller lineup with Jeff Teague and Kirk Hinrich in the backcourt while Joe Johnson slides to the small forward position. From the sound of things, it doesn't appear that the new lineup is going away even after Marvin Williams is healthy and returns from a hip injury. Larry Drew talked post game about the merits of the Hawks' new alignment.

"It gives us another guard who can really defend," Drew said. "It takes [Johnson] off the ball a little bit but we are still able to run things through him. With both Jeff and Kirk in the backcourt it gives us some versatility at the guard spot.

Getting Johnson off the ball has resulted in a number of catch and shoot opportunities of late of which he has been cashing in on at a high rate.
