Game Preview:

The Nets come in having lost three in a row but are rested and primed to make a tough game out of a struggling opponent. This will be the Hawks first match up this season against former Georgia Tech hoopster Derek Favors who is coming off the bench and playing quite well for the Nets. It is soul searching time for the Hawks and perhaps a road trip can bring the team together and help cure whatever is ailing them.

Keys to the Game:

For the Hawks this quote says it all:

"Would be nice to see them get excited about playing the game"

When things get this bad for a team sometimes they can find refuge on the floor. At this point what more can you say to this team other than to just shut up and play.
