Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Gerald Wallace's hair and mouthpiece and rebounding.

Game Preview;

Well, I have made the return trip to Charlotte. I apologize in advance for this loss. I am an 0-2 on this little journey the last two seasons. It has made me cry. It has cost me hundreds in thereapy. Last year ended with me screaming at Al Horford that the season was going down the drain. Why Al Horford? Because Josh Smith was not allowed to play in the second half of that game after yelling at Mike Woodson. The Queen City, where dreams are destroyed. If you have no interest in this game, root for sanity.

On that note, I hope we win. With Joe Johnson out, I hope we see another Marvin Williams free throw machine. I hope you see me on TV. I will be in the Al Horford jersey berating the refs for the call that was probably made correctly.

Go Hawks!
