My best guess is that the Hawks go with the big lineup tonight matching Jason Collins against Andrew Bogut. That move will put Marvin Williams coming off the bench tonight as he sees his first action since injuring his back on December 29th against the Golden State Warriors. Probably a good move to let Williams come off the bench for a bit as he gets his feet back under him after being out for an extended period.

I really don't know what Milwaukee will do for a starting lineup. The above lineup is their starters from their last game against the Bulls. John Salmons is listed as questionable and could return which could change things a bit. Brandon Jennings is hoping to return soon but hasn't been cleared by team doctors as of yet to return to practice.

Atlanta enters tonight's game having won six straight road games. Milwaukee has lost seven of its last ten and two in a row overall.

Everyone keeps waiting on this Bucks team to make a run back into the Eastern Conference playoff picture. I am not so sure it will happen but lets hope the Hawks don't let them start a run tonight.
