Tonight's game will see the Hawks trying to extend their season high win streak at home to eleven games. The game will be played in the shadow of the huge NFL Playoff game that is going on across the street at the Georgia Dome between the Falcons and the Packers. Atlanta originally wanted to move the Hawks game to an afternoon tipoff but was unable to do so due to the Rockets game against the Hornets on Friday night.

The Rockets lost to the Hornets on Friday 110-105 with four of their five starters all playing 40+ minutes. Fatigue could be a factor tonight as the Rockets.
