NEW YORK (AP) -- Al Horford was not in the Atlanta starting lineup against Brooklyn because of leg pain, and Hawks coach Larry Drew was unsure if or how much his center would play.
Zaza Pachulia started in place of Horford, who was battling hamstring and calf pain, according to Drew. Horford had started 37 of the Hawks' first 38 games this season.
Josh Smith was back in the starting lineup after missing a game because of a team suspension.
Gerald Wallace returned to the Nets' starting lineup Friday after missing two games and coming off the bench in the last one because of bruised ribs.
