Wizards Update: Butler had 35 while Jamison added 34 in their win over the Pacers on Sunday.  So I’m pretty sure who the Hawks need to stop to beat the worst team in the league (at home).  But I’m betting we play this game close like we do against all weak opponents.  Unless they blow us out like the Clippers did the other day.  Maybe we will be pissed about it and play well.  Anyways, since Andray Blatche was injured in late January, the Wiz have been starting Jamison, Butler, James, Dominic McGuire (Fresno State), and Darius Songaila (Wake Forest).  Georgia Tech alum and Atlanta native Javaris Crittenton starting in place of Butler two games ago, when Butler had flu-like symptoms.  We’ll see if Crittenton has a good showing this time in Atlanta, as earlier this season when he was with Memphis he got 6 minutes of PT with zero points.  The Hawks have played the Wizards twice this year, once in each city, winning both by a slim four and six point margins.  I gotta like +9 tonight, don’t you.  Unless Bibby plays….

Hawks Update: The official Hawks notes are listing Bibby as inactive and the IV as a probably stater.  I can’t find anything to refute that so I guess no Bibbs.  I think this is good for us.  I would like a W but lets see what else we can do without Bibby.  A lot of over stuff is going on with the Hawks and I am gonna try to get to it later tonight or tomorrow morning so look out for it.  Oh, and Speedy Claxton is on the inactive list as well….
