The Atlanta Hawks return home from a six-game road trip and will try to snap a two game winning streak when they take on the Washington Wizards.
The Atlanta Hawks finally return to Philips Arena after a long and winding six-game road trip. The Hawks were just 2-4 on the trip but didn't play badly at times and had a chance to win three of the four losses. Still their hold on the sixth spot in the East is weakening and they need to get healthy and get things turned around quick.
Washington was one of the big players at Thursday's trade deadline shipping out Nick Young, JaVale McGee and Ronny Turiaf in a three-team deal for Nene and Brian Cook. The Wizards defeated the New Orleans Hornets 99-89 Thursday night.
