The only constant in Larry Drew’s nightly lineups is change. The Hawks have started 24 different lineups, including 10 different lineups in the past 10 games. Despite all this, the Hawks hold a record of 36-29 and are tied for fifth in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks most frequent starting lineup of Teague, Stevenson, Korver, Smith and Horford has only played 12 games and has a losing record in those 12 games. 16 different lineups has been used once and only once. It’s a testament to the job that coach Larry Drew has done that the Hawks continue to display continuity and chemistry despite ever-changing lineups.
