|Jeff Teague||PG||Goran Dragic|
|Kyle Korver||SG||Jared Dudley|
|DeShawn Stevenson||SF||P.J. Tucker|
|Josh Smith||PF||Luis Scola|
|Al Horford||C||Marcin Gortat|
Hawks player to watch: It'd be easy to go with either Al Horford or Jeff Teague after the way both have been playing but Josh Smith will provide a pretty big challenge for Luis Scola. Smith is averaging over 25 points and nine rebounds in his last four trips to Phoenix and had a monster performance in a Hawks win there last season.
Suns player to watch: I mentioned it in the preview but Goran Dragic is leading the Suns in scoring, assists and steals and has posted double-doubles in five of his last nine games. His matchup against Jeff Teague will be critical for the Suns.
