Larry Drew will stick with what worked and run out the same starting lineup that the team used in a 98-90 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.
Typically when Drew goes with the Jeff Teague and Devin Harris combination in the back court he wants to push the pace considerably. The duo was very successful on Wednesday against the Bucks. Teague finished with 27 points and 11 assists while Devin Harris scored 10 of his 15 points in the first quarter and also finished with six assists. The Hawks finished with a 28-15 advantage in fast break points on Wednesday.
Ivan Johnson sat out Saturday's practice with back spasms but is available to play although his minutes will be monitored. DeShawn Stevenson is not expected to play against the Bucks but will instead go in tomorrow's game against Indiana.
No word on what lineup the Bucks will go with and whether or not Erson Ilyasova will be able to return from a hip injury. Ilyasova is listed as questionable. Without Ilyasova Milwaukee has been going with both Samuel Dalembert and Larry Sanders in the frontcourt.
