Georgia Tech alum Anthony Morrow will make his first start of the season tonight as the Atlanta Hawks wrap up their 3-game road trip in Orlando against the Magic.
Hawks head coach Larry Drew will rest DeShawn Stevenson and only play Kyle Korver in a limited fashion, leaving a short list of players who can fill that small forward role on the floor for Atlanta.
Larry Drew said he expects to play Kyle Korver about 20 minutes. #ATLHawks

Anthony Tolliver was in the running for the start, but one would speculate Morrow gets the nod because of his ability to stretch the floor with his terrific 3-point shooting prowess.
Morrow is averaging 5.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game this season. Through 15 games he posts a 3P% of .409 and FG% of .471.
