Following an overtime victory against the Washington Wizards, the Hawks are among the elite of the Eastern Conference and have been playing well as of late. However, they'll play host to the hottest team in the NBA on Wednesday night when the Oklahoma City Thunder come to town.
The Thunder have the NBA's best record after 11-consecutive victories and haven't lost a game since dropping a contest to the Boston Celtics on Nov. 23. Leading the way as always is Kevin Durant with 27.1 points per game, but Russell Westbrook isn't far behind with 20.8 points and more than double the assists of Durant.
To get a huge home victory on Wednesday night, the Hawks could use another strong performance from Josh Smith. The shooting guard scored 17 points and pulled down 13 rebounds against the Wizards on Tuesday.
Game Date/Time: Wednesday, December 19, 7:30 p.m. ET
