The 16-7 Philadelphia 76ers will travel to Atlanta to face the 16-7 Hawks in the second game of a back-to-back, and the first Sixers road game since January 21 in Miami. The Sixers are coming off a 20 point loss to the Miami Heat on Friday night, while the Hawks are also coming off a loss, a 19 point home loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday.
Tonight marks the second meeting between the Hawks and Sixers this season. The Sixers won the first contest by a final score of 90-76, in a convincing victory in front of their home crowd. The Sixers will try to do the same in Atlanta's building, where the Hawks are 8-2 on the season. The Sixers are just 4-4 on the road.
The Hawks will be without starting center Al Horford and back-up center, Jason Collins. The Sixers will be minus their starting center as well, Spencer Hawes, who is expected to miss his 11th consecutive game.
