Gamethread!

Starters:

Injuries:

  • Alec Burks (UTA) -- out, because the world hates Alec Burks fans
  • Rodney Hood (UTA) -- out, with a sort left heel
  • DeMarre Carroll (ATL) -- questionable, due to dehydration; however, he is not expected to miss any time
  • Al Horford (ATL) -- probable, he practiced before this road trip, he should be good to go

Marquee Match-up:

There are a lot of ways we can go here, looking at the point guard situation, or looking at the bigmen -- but I'm going with Gordon Hayward against Kyle Korver. For reals. These guys have seen a lot of each other lately.

Fearful prediction:

Jeff Teague gets another double double as the Jazz lose in sad fashion.

Fun-ful prediction:

G-time kills the Hawks.

GO JAZZ GO!
