What to watch:

The Hawks first up close and personal look at Clippers rookie Blake Griffin who is averaging 21.5 points and 12.4 rebounds. The guy is a beast and the Hawks will have a tough time contending with him all day. The Hawks will be looking to bounce back after a 103-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on New Year's Eve. The Clippers haven't played since a 103-95 loss to the Utah Jazz on December 29th. Prior to that game they had won five of their last six games after a slow start.
