2012/2013 NBA Regular Season Game #7, Road Game #4
Wednesday November 14, 2012
ORACLE Arena, Oakland, California
10:30 p.m. ET

Probable Starters
Jeff Teague PG Stephen Curry
Kyle Korver SG Klay Thompson
DeShawn Stevenson SF Harrison Barnes
Josh Smith PF David Lee
Al Horford C Festus Ezeli

Hawks Injury Report: Devin Harris (strained left hamstring) is out. Al Horford's (stomach sickness) status is undetermined and he will be a game-time decision. Johan Petro's status (lower back pain) also still remains questionable. Josh Smith and Lou Williams who both endured stomach sickness in the last game will play tonight.

Warriors Injury Report: Andrew Bogut (left ankle) and Brandon Rush (torn ACL) are out.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: Al Horford is averaging 18.9 ppg in 7 career games against the Golden State Warriors. That's his highest average in points against any team. Jeff Teague will be matched up a not-so-good perimeter defender in Stephen Curry for most of the night, so Teague's willingness to take advantage of his speed and quickness will be something to watch.

Warriors Player(s) to watch: With no real inside threat, the Warriors rely on their shooters to carry the load offensively. The Hawks have done well closing out on three point shooters this season. The Hawks rank third in opposing team's 3pt FGA and rank 6th in opposing team's 3pt FG%. The Hawks will put themselves in a good situation to snag another road win if the trend continues, and they prevent the Warriors from having a good shooting night.
