Hawks put Horford, Williams in lineup for Game 5

Al Horford is back in the starting lineup for the Atlanta Hawks

as they try to avoid elimination in their first-round series

against the Boston Celtics.

Horford missed most of the regular season and the first three

games of the playoffs after undergoing pectoral surgery. He made a

surprising return in Game 4, coming off the bench for 12 points and

five rebounds in a 22-point loss.

With the Celtics leading 3-1, Atlanta made a couple of changes

for Game 5 on Tuesday night. In addition to Horford starting at

center, Marvin Williams gets the nod at small forward so Joe

Johnson can drop back to the shooting guard position, in hopes that

will free him up for more offense. He scored just nine points in

the previous game.
