Williams still out
Hawks forward Marvin Williams (back) sat out the seventh consecutive game.
"He did say it's feeling better, but still doesn't have a timetable when he's going to return," Drew said. "He's shooting jump shots now, leaving his feet and taking a pounding. That's a good sign for me. Before he was shooting all set shots, looks like he's moving around a little bit better."
Rockets coach Rick Adelman on the Hawks' request (denied by Houston) to move the game's start to avoid conflicting with the Falcons' game: "Yeah, right." The Rockets lost to New Orleans on Friday night. ... The Hawks entered the game with a league-high 13 misses on technical-foul free throws. ... The Hawks had been called for 23 technical fouls this season, second fewest in the NBA (Oklahoma City had 22).
