Hawks shake up lineup for Game 5

Larry Drew is moving Kirk Hinrich and Jason Collins to the bench. I expected Al Horford to start. Even if he's still rusty, Horford is a better option than Collins.

Marvin Williams is shooting 21% in this series. I'm guessing Drew wants him to defend Paul Pierce?

This switch will put either Rajon Rondo or Avery Bradley on Joe Johnson. 

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

John just IM'd me some additional commentary worthy of this post:

Why on earth would Drew tell everyone about this anyway? "Hey C's… I'm really gonna make a huge switch to f- you up… here's 7 hours with an awesome coaching staff and 3 Hall of Famers to come up with a counter attack"

UPDATE: Doc Rivers expects everyone (Pierce, Allen, Bradley and Pietrus) to play tonight.

    Larry Leisure Drew is one guy I’m glad isn’t the Celtics coach. He couldn’t inspire me to take a dump most mornings, and I’m regular.
