The Atlanta Hawks will be at home at Philips Arena when they play the Los Angeles Clippers. The Hawks are one game below .500 on the year, holding a record of 9-10. On the other hand, the visiting Clippers are above .500 on the year, coming in with a 12-6 record. This game will begin at 7:30 pm EST and FSN-PT and SportSouth will be providing coverage of the contest.
After their heart-breaking 102-100 loss to the Spurs, the Hawks are looking to avoid a repeat performance. Al Horford was a top performer for the Hawks, scoring 18 points while adding 7 rebounds and 3 assists. The Clippers, meanwhile, are coming off a 105-100 loss at the hands of the Indiana Pacers. Los Angeles still lost despite the best effort of DeAndre Jordan, who recorded his seventh double-double so far this year with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
The efficient offense of the Clippers (fourth in the league with an offensive efficiency of 107.1) will try to exploit the porous defense of the Hawks (29th in the NBA with a defensive efficiency of 137.8), a matchup that should be advantageous to Los Angeles.
