Hawks-Hornets Preview

(AP) -- The regular season has become essentially meaningless for the Atlanta Hawks. That's far from true for the Charlotte Hornets.

Needing a strong late-season push to stay in playoff contention, the Hornets look to snap a three-game skid Saturday night when they host the Hawks, who have wrapped up the Eastern Conference's top seed.

Since dropping three straight to Golden State, Oklahoma City and San Antonio while allowing 117.0 points per game, Atlanta (55-17) has been much better defensively against some lesser competition.
