SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Prior to beginning another difficult road trip, the Sacramento Kings host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday at Arco Arena.

The road was unkind to the Kings prior to the All-Star break as the club dropped four of its last five away from home and six of seven overall. Following Tuesday's home game, Sacramento heads back to the road for six in a row, four against winning teams.

The Kings finished their three-game swing before the break with a 96-85 loss at New Jersey on Wednesday.

Mike Bibby scored 25 points but the rest of the team shot just 38 percent (24-of-64) and made only two 3-pointers.

Peja Stojakovic, who has been involved in rumors as Thursday's trade deadline approaches, missed the loss with flu-like symptoms.

Prior to the break, the Hawks dropped the first of seven straight games on the road with a 111-89 setback at Cleveland. Antoine Walker scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the loss, Atlanta's fourth straight overall.

Hawks rookie Josh Smith was one of the headliners of the All-Star break, taking home the Slam Dunk Contest with an impressive display Saturday.

Smith is averaging 8.7 points and 2.7 blocks in three games since returning from a sprained ankle February 12.

Bibby scored 31 points and Chris Webber added 28 in Sacramento's 100-97 win at Atlanta on January 7.

The Kings have won the last four home games against the Hawks and six of the last seven meetings overall.
