Hawks at Mavericks

7:30 p.m. Wednesday

American Airlines Center


Radio: ESPN/103.3 FM, KFLC/1270 AM (Sp.)

About the Hawks: With Al Horford, Paul Millsap, Jeff Teague, Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver and Louis Williams — along with ex-Mavericks Elton Brand and Jared Cunningham — the Hawks have some quality talent. Millsap, Horford, Teague, Korver and Williams didn’t even play when the Hawks ended preseason play with a 98-88 loss in Dallas on Oct. 23. A two-time All-Star, Horford has been recovering from a hamstring injury.

About the Mavericks: Some fresh faces have joined Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion in the Mavericks’ starting lineup. They include point guard Jose Calderon, shooting guard Monta Ellis and center Samuel Dalembert. Calderon comes with a high basketball IQ, Ellis brings speed and an all-around game, and Dalembert is the shot-blocking center who must protect the rim. Meanwhile, Nowitzki and Marion are both 35 years old, but still have impact capabilities.
