Atlanta: The Hawks, led by Josh Smith and Joe Johnson, have been one of the league’s biggest surprises.
at Indiana: The Pacers are a young, rebuilding team. Amazingly, their only win was against Boston.
Orlando: Dwight Howard is one of the league’s dominant big men, a huge challenge for the Thunder.
at New York: The Knicks routinely are scoring 100 points under former Suns coach Mike D’Antoni.
at Philadelphia: Elton Brand is doing his part, but the 76ers are off to a surprisingly slow start.
