After two dominating victories, the Atlanta Hawks look for their third straight win with a rematch of opening night against the New Jersey Nets. Atlanta pounded the Nets Tuesday in a 106-70 win that was the Hawks largest opening day win ever. Atlanta made it two in a row with an 18 point win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. The Hawks have yet to trail in any game this season so far.
Atlanta once again catches New Jersey in the second game of a back-to-back situation. The Nets were 94-78 losers to Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic Thursday night at the Amway Center in Orlando. Once again tonight's game will focus on the match up between Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague and New Jersey's Deron Williams. Teague held his own in the first match up finishing with 13 points and three assists in just 24 minutes while helping Atlanta's defense harass Williams into a tough night of 10 points, one assist and six turnovers.
