Josh Smith vs. David WestThe Hornets got their biggest win of the season on Thursday, beating the Western Conference leading Suns in New Orleans. Tonight, the league leading Hakes come to town, fresh off a last-second win over the Rockets last night in Atlanta.

The Hawks are 11-2 on the season, currently riding a 7-game winning streak. We saw them just a week ago in Atlanta, when our guys were still within striking distance early in the fourth quarter before the Hawks got serious and blew the game open.

Atlanta have been eating their vegetables and so have no injuries to report. As for the Hornets, Chris Paul remains out for a mysterious amount of time, while Marcus Thornton has reportedly shaken off that ankle tweak and will be available tonight. As for Ike Diogu, the T-P reports that he did not practice as planned yesterday, so I guess his reevaluation didn’t go well.

Game tips at 7 p.m. Central.
