The San Antonio Spurs (31-11) will hit the road to complete the second game of a back-to-back with a visit to Atlanta to take on the Hawks (22-17) and hope to correct what's ailing the team on the road.  San Antonio is 2-7 in the last nine road games. This will be the first meeting between the two teams this season. The Spurs are coming off a 95-88 win over the Warriors in San Antonio last night. The team was paced by Duncan’s 24 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots while Tony Parker had a game-high 25 points and eight assists. The Spurs also played without Manu Ginobili who is recovering from a strained left hamstring. The Hawks are coming off a 89-94 loss to the Nets in Brooklyn last night. Guard Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 21 points and 10 assists. The Hawks could be without Al Horford and Lou Williams. Horford was not in action for the loss in Brooklyn because of a sore hamstring and calf, while Williams left the game after spraining his right knee. And as East meets West, here are five things to watch for during tonight's contest: • The Spurs are scoring 98.0 points in their last nine road contests after averaging 107.5 in starting 11-2 away from the AT&T Center. • The Spurs are 5-4 on the second game of a back-to-back this season. • Hawks' Josh Smith struggles against the Spurs. In 13 career games versus San Antonio, he's averaging 9.1 points on 29.2 percent shooting. • Since the 2008-09 season, the Hawks have recorded a 125-50 (.714) regular season record at Philips Arena. • Hawks' Kyle Korver has made at least one three-pointer in his last 33 games played.
