Game Preview:

If there was one positive that came out of the Hawks triple-overtime loss to the Miami Heat last night it is that they don't have to wait long to try and redeem themselves. The Hawks arrived in Charlotte early this morning for their second game of three straight days. Atlanta doesn't have anywhere to go but up after last night's disappointing loss to a Heat team without Lebron James and Dwyane Wade.

Charlotte last played on Wednesday where they upset the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Boris Diaw and Gerald Henderson played well in that win and hope to carry it over to tonight's game. Corey Maggette is doubtful for tonight's game after suffering a hamstring injury against the Knicks.
