Update: The Lakers haven't lost at home to Atlanta since February 2006, a string of six consecutive victories. In a scheduling quirk, the Lakers haven't played the Hawks yet this season. Atlanta had won four consecutive games, three of them on the road, until a 92-87 loss Friday at Phoenix. Hawks forward Josh Smith had five turnovers and only five points on two-for-11 shooting in that game. He is averaging 17.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists this season.
