KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: RAMON SESSIONS will have to adjust to a major downgrade in teammates, but he has the kind of versatile offensive skill set to be the focal point of this offense . . . The athletic GERALD HENDERSON has made strides the past two seasons. Realistically, his offensive skills are those of a No. 4 or 5 option . . . Coach Mike Dunlap is high on KEMBA WALKER, who was sometimes overwhelmed as a rookie. With a few new sets built in for him, he could thrive as a sixth man getting starter's minutes . . . BEN GORDON won't overtake Henderson, but should see big minutes as the Cats' only shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a D-League talent . . . MATT CARROLL, in the final year of his $27 million deal, symbolizes everything that's gone wrong under Michael Jordan. FORWARDS: Drafting MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST was as much about changing the losing culture as it was adding a piece they needed. MKG's statistical output is a question mark, but he'll see big minutes as a defensive stopper and intangibles guy . . . This team is seriously lacking in the post, where they may have no choice but to play TYRUS THOMAS for significant minutes. The talented but uber-underachieving big man claims to have added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason. If nothing else, they might showcase him in a desperate attempt to get some trade value . . . Rookie JEFFERY TAYLOR figures to make the team and has the versatility and athleticism to be a respectable second-unit guy. CENTERS: Charlotte sees BISMACK BIYOMBO as a franchise cornerstone. He can certainly rebound and block shots, but his offense is atrocious . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD brings a veteran presence. At his age he can't go more than 15 or so minutes per night . . . BYRON MULLENS never saw a shot he didn't like. He'll get one more chance to prove he's an NBA rotation player, able to play the four or five . . . DeSAGANA DIOP is doing those things that DeSagana Diop does.

*Hawks-Bobcats Preview* =======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Atlanta (6-4) at Charlotte (6-4), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Already the biggest surprise of the young season, the Charlotte Bobcats believe this is only the beginning.

The Bobcats will try to record their best start in the nine-year history of the franchise and match their entire win total from last season on Friday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks.

Just one season removed from finishing with the worst winning percentage in NBA history at 7-59, Charlotte (6-4) has enjoyed a stunning turnaround, winning five of six after a three-game skid.

The Bobcats also started 6-4 during the 2007-08 season.

"We're trying to build a winning culture here, and every win helps," first-year coach Mike Dunlap said.

While it took Charlotte 40 games to reach six wins last season, Dunlap's club captured its sixth victory already Wednesday night, when Ramon Sessions hit a go-ahead 16-footer with 28 seconds left to beat Toronto 98-97.

Kemba Walker had 19 points and seven assists, while Sessions and rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist each had 14 points. Walker and Sessions have both scored in double figures in all 10 games.

Walker leads the team with 18.8 points and 5.5 assists per game.

"He's setting the culture for us," Dunlap said. "There's a lot on his plate, but he can handle it."

The Bobcats have stepped up defensively during their hot streak, holding opponents to 91.5 points in that six-game span. They rank among the league's top ten in steals (86) and blocked shots (76) and are forcing 14.6 turnovers per game.

Charlotte put together an impressive defensive stand with two blocks in the final seconds of Wednesday's win, running its record to 5-0 in games decided by four points or fewer.

"I think our defense is getting better and I'm selling that first and foremost," Dunlap said. "It's far from where it needs to be but it's getting there and we have the numbers to prove that."

Reaching that landmark seventh victory might not be easy for the Bobcats, with the Hawks (6-4) having won three straight and four of five.

They did, however, need, a 3-pointer from Kyle Korver with 1.9 seconds left in overtime on Wednesday night to get past winless Washington 101-100.

Josh Smith led Atlanta with season highs of 25 points and 12 rebounds, Korver added five 3-pointers and Al Horford had 15 points, a career-high 10 assists and nine boards.

The Hawks, who rank fifth in the NBA in scoring defense (92.1), will try to hold an opponent under 100 points through regulation for a 10th straight game. It could happen against a Bobcats team that shoots 42.2 percent from the field and is 29th in the league with 47 3-pointers.

Atlanta will likely need a better performance on the boards after getting outrebounded 58-37 by the Wizards. Rebounding, though, has been an issue all season for the Hawks, who rank 26th in the NBA with 39.9 per game.

"We know we have to go down there and be prepared," assistant coach Lester Conner said. "A lot of people have been going down there and taking (Charlotte) for granted, so we can't allow that."

Atlanta has averaged 112.3 points in winning the last four meetings, including three straight victories by 20 or more points.
