Hawks vs. Bobcats: DeShawn Stevenson back in Atlanta's starting lineup

After sticking with the same starting lineup for two straight games, Larry Drew is making a change to his starting lineup for tonight's game against the Charlotte Bobcats. Drew is electing to go with DeShawn Stevenson at the small forward position and will bring Devin Harris off the bench.

Harris had started the last two games at shooting guard. Kyle Korver will slide to the shooting guard position in tonight's alignment.

The rest of the starting lineup is familiar for Hawks fans. Jeff Teague, Korver, Josh Smith and Al Horford have started every game they have appeared in this season. Stevenson will be making his fifth start.

Harris had 13 points and five assists in Wednesday's overtime win over the Washington Wizards. He is averaging 6.0 points and 2.3 assists per game this season. Stevenson has been hampered by a sore knee and a sore back and is averaging 5.8 points and 2.4 rebounds while making 38 percent of his field goal attempts.
