Hawks vs. Hornets: No surprises in Atlanta starting lineup

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Larry Drew will use the same starting lineup for the second consecutive night as the Hawks try to bounce back against the New Orleans Hornets.

Larry Drew will stick with the same starting lineup as last night as the Hawks try to bounce back against the New Orleans Hornets. Drew will go with Jeff Teague and Lou Williams in the backcourt, Kyle Korver and Josh Smith at the forwards with Al Horford at center.

Smith returned to the lineup last night after missing the previous game with a groin injury. Smith didn't exhibit any problems last night against the Rockets and apparently had no problems following the game. Atlanta lost last night for the first time since Lou Williams was inserted into the starting lineup.

The Hornets will again bring guard Eric Gordon off the bench but head coach Monty Williams indicated that they would reevaluate that situation following tonight's game. Gordon made his season debut on Saturday.
