This game figures to provide a big challenge for the Hawks to match up with the Sixers' bench brigade of Louis Williams, Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner. All three come off the bench and all three are averaging double figures in points. Williams leads the team with 15.7 points per off the bench.

Spencer Hawes who is averaging 10.4 points and 8.8 rebounds for the Sixers is questionable with a strained Achilles. He sat out Wednesday's loss to Denver. Entering tonight's game Philadelphia is No. 3 in the league in scoring at 101.0 points per game and is also the league's second best defensive team at 87.4.
