The Atlanta Hawks look to get back on track Tuesday night as they continue their road trip in New Orleans.


2012/2013 NBA Regular Season Game #30, Road Game #14
Tuesday, January 1, 2013
New Orleans Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana
8 p.m. ET
SportSouth HD, 680 AM/93.7 FM
Probable Starters
Jeff Teague PG Greivis Vasquez
Lou Williams SG Austin Rivers
Kyle Korver SF Lance Thomas
Josh Smith PF Anthony Davis
Al Horford C Robin Lopez

Hawks injury report: Devin Harris (foot) and Anthony Morrow (hip) are out and are not on the road trip. Josh Smith returned from a one game absence because of a groin injury but is expected to play on Tuesday.

Hornets injury report: Eric Gordon (knee) made his season debut on Saturday and is expected to play on Tuesday against the Hawks.

Hawks' player(s) to watch: Jeff Teague struggled against the Rockets going 4-17 from the field for 10 points. Teague did hand out nine assists but also have five turnovers. Atlanta needs a bounce back game from Teague particularly against Greivis Vasquez who is the reigning NBA Player of the Week for the Western Conference.

Hornets' player(s) to watch: Eric Gordon made his season debut on Saturday and finished with 24 points and seven assists in just 25 minutes off the bench. The Hornets are just 7-23 on the season but with Gordon back will have as much confidence as they have had all season.
