Atlanta Hawks vs. Phoenix Suns game thread

The Atlanta Hawks look to remain unbeaten on their current road trip when they take on the Phoenix Suns.


2012/2013 NBA Regular Season Game #57

Friday, March 1, 2013
U.S. Airways Center, Phoenix, Arizona
9 p.m. ET
NBA TV, SportSouth 680 AM/93.7 FM
Probable Starters
Jeff Teague PG Goran Dragic
Kyle Korver SG Jared Dudley
DeShawn Stevenson SF P.J. Tucker
Josh Smith PF Luis Scola
Al Horford C Marcin Gortat

Hawks injury report: Lou Williams is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Suns injury report: Channing Frye is out for the season due to a heart condition.

Hawks player to watch: It'd be easy to go with either Al Horford or Jeff Teague after the way both have been playing but Josh Smith will provide a pretty big challenge for Luis Scola. Smith is averaging over 25 points and nine rebounds in his last four trips to Phoenix and had a monster performance in a Hawks win there last season.

Suns player to watch: I mentioned it in the preview but Goran Dragic is leading the Suns in scoring, assists and steals and has posted double-doubles in five of his last nine games. His matchup against Jeff Teague will be critical for the Suns.
