The 10-4 Philadelphia 76ers will look to bounce back following their overtime loss to the Denver Nuggets when they host the 11-4 Atlanta Hawks tonight. The Hawks sport the Eastern Conference's longest active winning streak at four, and have won seven of their last eight games.
The Hawks four game winning streak has surprisingly come despite the absence of All Star center, Al Horford, who will miss the next few months with a pectoral tear. They last played on Wednesday night when they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers by three in Atlanta. Tonight represents Atlanta's first road game since January 11 in Indiana – the game they lost Horford.
Jason Collins and Zaza Pachulia have split duties as the starting center since Horford went down with injury, with former D-Leaguer, Ivan Johnson, receiving a spike in minutes off the bench.
The game is scheduled for 7:00 EST and can be seen on Comcast.
