Preview:

Atlanta opens a six-game road trip Tuesday night with a key Eastern Conference matchup against the Indiana Pacers. Atlanta and Indiana split the previous two matchups and tonight's game will be the rubber match in the head-to-head series that serves as a tie breaker should the two teams become tied in the final standings.

The Hawks are still dealing with a variety of injuries to their 15 man roster. In addition to Al Horford and Jason Collins, Atlanta is likely to be without Joe Johnson who is still recovering from tendinitis in his right knee. The Hawks could also be missing Willie Green (back) and Tracy McGrady (knee) who are questionable and game-time decisions along with Jerry Stackhouse (ill).

Indiana is coming off of a 92-72 loss in Chicago on Monday which snapped a six-game winning streak for the Pacers.
