|DeShawn Stevenson||SG||Kobe Bryant|
|Josh Smith||SF||Metta World Peace|
|Al Horford||PF||Earl Clark|
|Zaza Pachulia||C||Dwight Howard|
Hawks player to watch: Jeff Teague finished with six points and one assist in Friday's loss to the Suns and the Hawks will need a much better performance at both ends of the floor on Sunday. Teague will be matched against former MVP Steve Nash and will need to use his speed and athleticism to attack at every opportunity.
Lakers player to watch: Kobe Bryant has scored 40, 38,29, and 33 in his last four games and the Hawks will try to avoid another superhuman performance tonight. DeShawn Stevenson and Dahntay Jones are likely to see a lot of time matched on Bryant tonight.
