Third time's a charm? For the third time in two weeks, NBA scheduler Matt Winick has the Nets and Hawks going against each other. Twice before the Nets have lost to the Hawks, the first time in the home opener by 36 and then in Atlanta by seven five days later.

The Hawks are among the big surprises in the NBA, being the only team to beat the Heat and now sporting a 6-3 record. But they will be without Marvin Williams, who sprained his left ankle in Saturday's win over the Bulls

For the Nets, the injury list is also the news. Mehmet Okur (back spasms) and Damion James (foot) are both out for Monday's game. Brook Lopez (broken foot) gets his walking boot removed this week, but is likely out another month. He is missed.
