2012/2013 NBA Regular Season Game #55

Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Energy Solutions Arena, Salt Lake City, Utah
9 p.m. ET
NBA TV, SportSouth 680 AM/93.7 FM
Probable Starters
Jeff Teague PG Earl Watson
Devin Harris SG Randy Foye
Kyle Korver SF Marvin Williams
Josh Smith PF Derrick Favors
Al Horford C Al Jefferson

Hawks injury report: Zaza Pachulia is listed as questionable will play. Lou Williams is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Jazz injury report: Paul Millsap is game-time decision out with an ankle injury. Mo Williams is out with a thumb injury.

Hawks player to watch: While Al Horford has been amazing of late, Jeff Teague has been playing at a very high level and figures to be a problem for the Jazz Wednesday night. Teague has scored at least 20 points and handed out nine assists in each of his past three games. During the month of February, Teague is averaging 18.2 points and 9.5 assists and is giving the Atlanta offense a jumpstart each and every night.

Jazz player to watch: According to Jazz radio voice David Locke, Al Jefferson is averaging 20 points while shooting 52 percent in Utah wins. Jefferson is at 16 points a game on 45 percent shooting in losses. Doing a nice job defensively and making him work hard for what he gets will be a priority for Atlanta.
