Game Preview:

New Jersey is coming off of a 90-84 win over the Washington Wizards last night. Atlanta is catching them at home and on the second night of a back-to-back which is going to become common place this season. Atlanta won't have to deal with New Jersey center Brook Lopez who is out with a foot injury for the foreseeable future. Point guard Deron Williams recorded a near triple-double in the opener and his match up with Jeff Teague will be critical for the Hawks.
