2012/2013 NBA Regular Season
Saturday, January 19, 2013
Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
7:00 p.m. ET
SportSouth HD, 680 AM/93.7 FM
Probable Starters
Tony Parker PG Jeff Teague
Danny Green SG Devin Harris
Kawhi Leonard SF Josh Smith
Tim Duncan PF Al Horford
Tiago Splitter C Zaza Pachulia

Hawks injury report: DeShawn Stevenson is out until Monday after receiving a cortisone shot in his knee earlier this week. Lou Williams is listed as doubtful officially but won't play after suffering a knee injury Friday night. Anthony Morrow has missed the last 12 games with hip and back injuries and is listed as questionable. Al Horford is also questionable with hamstring and calf injuries but indicated on Friday that he expects to play on Saturday.

Spurs injury report: Manu Ginobli is out with a hamstring strain.

Hawks player to watch: Jeff Teague

Teague has been red hot the last two games averaging just over 25 points and 10.5 assists. His matchup with Tony Parker on Saturday is likely the key matchup in the game.

Spurs player to watch: Tony Parker

Parker scored 25 points in last night's win over Golden State. On the season he is averaging 19.6 points and 7.2 assists while shooting a ridiculous 52 percent from the floor. The Spurs have plenty of weapons but Parker may be the biggest.
