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 FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense.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."
UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.

*Hawks-Jazz Preview* ====================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Atlanta (32-23) at Utah (31-26), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz decided to keep their leading scorers at last week's trade deadline. That decision has so far paid more dividends for one team.

With help from Josh Smith, the Hawks will seek a sixth win in seven games and fourth in a row Wednesday night against the Jazz, who will try to avoid a third straight loss.

Atlanta (32-23) was reportedly in trade talks with Milwaukee for Smith, who is averaging 17.3 points, before Thursday's deadline, but it ultimately declined to make a deal even though the forward will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

"We weighed the positives and negatives of each of our opportunities and at the end of the day we felt like the best decision was to stand pat based off some of the things we were looking at," general manager Danny Ferry said.

The decision so far has looked like the right one as Atlanta has solidified its hold on a playoff spot with its recent surge. Smith and Al Horford each had 23 points in a 114-103 victory over Detroit on Monday, leading Atlanta to a season-high fourth straight road win.

Horford also matched a career high with 22 rebounds, and Jeff Teague had 20 points and 12 assists as the Hawks scored at least 100 for the eighth time in nine games. They had reached the century mark in only seven of their first 17 of 2013.

"We just have to keep trying to play well and try to win as many games as we can," said Horford, whose team is 2-0 on its season-high six-game trip. "Our stretch only gets tougher. We're not trying to look ahead, but we know what our schedule is."

While the Hawks have thrived with Smith still on the roster, the Jazz (31-26) have dropped back-to-back games since deciding to keep Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap. Jefferson, averaging 17.6 points, and Millsap (15.1 ppg) have expiring contracts.

"We decided the incumbent position was the strongest now and going forward," general manager Dennis Lindsey said. "We'll see if we're right or wrong."

The Jazz, who are seventh in the Western Conference, erased an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to visiting Boston on Monday but fell 110-107 in overtime. Reserve Gordon Hayward had 26 points - one shy of matching his season high - in his third game back from a sprained shoulder, but he was the only Utah player with more than 16.

"I think we take this as a learning experience. We played hard. We competed, but we fell short," Hayward said. "We've just got to be better."

Utah will try to avoid its first three-game losing streak since Dec. 26-30, but a matchup with Atlanta might not help. The Hawks have won six of seven meetings and in each of the past two visits to Salt Lake City.

Former Jazz guard Devin Harris scored a season-high 24 points in a 103-95 victory in Atlanta on Jan. 11, and was one of six Hawks in double figures. Randy Foye led Utah with 25 points, his second-best scoring performance of the season, while Jefferson had 23 and Millsap scored 20.
