Saturday, January 27th (All times eastern)

Philadelphia 76ers (13-31) at Atlanta Hawks (15-26), 7 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Philadelphia 76ers open a three-game road trip when they visit the Atlanta Hawks tonight at Philips Arena.

The 76ers had a two-game winning streak stopped with Friday's 105-97 loss to the LeBron James-less Cleveland Cavaliers in the back end of a home-and-home set at the Wachovia Center. James was out with a sore big toe.

Andre Iguodala, who netted a career-high 34 points in Wednesday's win over the Cavs, finished with 22 points and seven assists, while Andre Miller recorded his seventh career triple-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists for the Sixers, who were trying for their first three-game winning streak since starting the season 3-0.

Sixers guard Willie Green (sore right knee) is questionable for Saturday.

Philadelphia, which is tied with Boston for last place in the Atlantic Division, is 6-20 away from home this season and will also visit the Rockets and Hornets on the trek.

Meanwhile, the Hawks have won two straight and completed a four-game road trip with a 2-2 mark. Atlanta notched its second straight win with Friday's 93-90 victory over the Orlando Magic at Amway Arena.

Joe Johnson scored a season-high 39 points on 14-of-23 shooting and Josh Smith netted 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Hawks, who will begin a four- game homestand versus Philadelphia, Orlando, Golden State and Toronto. Atlanta is 7-11 at Philips Arena this season and 9 1/2 games off the lead in the Southeast standings.

Philadelphia defeated the Hawks, 88-75, on November 1 this season at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers have won two straight, six of seven and seven of the last nine encounters.

The 76ers have won seven of 12 at the Hawks.
