The Atlanta Hawks will try to put Monday's 79-76 loss to the Boston Celtics out of their mind as they go for the season sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night at Philips Arena. Atlanta defeated the Cavs for the second time this season 103-87 this past Sunday.
Cleveland snapped a three-game skid on Monday with a win over the New Jersey Nets. Kyrie Irving continued his stellar play with 26 points and seven assists but the Cavs also got a solid contribution from its other rookie in Tristan Thompson who made his second career start and scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. In his first start of the season against Atlanta, Thompson scored just seven points and had six rebounds.
Injuries continue to be an issue for the Hawks who were without both Marvin Williams, Vladimir Radmanovic and Jannero Pargo on Monday against the Celtics. Willie Green dressed for the game but did not play after missing about two weeks with back and hamstring injuries. Pargo is out 2-4 weeks after an appendectomy and both Williams and Radmanovic should be considered as questionable against the Cavaliers.
