Matchup to Watch
Paul Millsap vs. Marvin Williams: Millsap has evolved into a All-Star since the Hawks signed him as a free agent two off-seasons ago.
▪ The Hawks have been among the Hornets’ toughest matchups the past few years, primarily because they are so skilled offensively.
▪ The Hawks are close to clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference. This would be the second time in franchise history that has happened.
▪ The Hawks are the only NBA team to be top-five this season in field-goal percentage, 3-point percentage and free-throw percentage.
▪ The Hawks aren’t bad defensively, either – opponents shoot 43.8 percent, sixth-lowest in the league.
