Hawks Injury Report: Marvin Williams is out, but in a suit. No passport issue in Wisconsin but I am assuming Speedy still won't dress.

Bucks Injury Report:Michael Redd and Andrew Bogut are done for the year.

Blogging With the Enemy: Brew Hoop

Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Charlie V. Let's hope he twitters at halftime and gets benched.

Game Preview:

A back to back consisting of two road games is not exactly a recipe for Hawks success, but against two teams that Hawks should beat, it may be just what the doctor ordered.

Keys to the game:

  1. Hawks second unit takes advantage of Bucks lack of depth. Paging hot Flip.
  2. More Al Horford.
  3. Josh guards Villanueva all the way out to the three point line.
  4. Josh does not mimic Villanueva's shot selection. 

Game recap might be very late. Any fanpost recap would be much appreciated.

See you in the comments.

Go Hawks!
