Notes

The Atlanta Hawks' 19-game winning streak finally came to an end on Monday when they lost 115-100 against the New Orleans Pelicans on the road. They now are back in the friendly confines of the Philips Arena to face a Wizards team that is trying to re-establish the same brand of basketball that helped catapultt them to a hot start and has been eluding them the last couple weeks.

It's going to be a tall task to avoid a four-game losing streak against ATL, but if there's a time to beat them, now sounds like a good time to me.
