The Atlanta Hawks have changed up their lineup for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Chicago Bulls.

Coming off a blowout loss, in which Derrick Rose scored 44 points, coach Larry Drew returned Sunday to the lineup that worked so well in a first-round win over Orlando. Jason Collins will start at center, Al Horford moves to power forward and Josh Smith shifts to small forward. Marvin Williams will come off the bench.

Drew made the move after the Hawks were outrebounded 105-73 in the last two games. They gave up 18 offensive boards in a 99-82 loss Friday night, pushing the Bulls to a 2-1 lead in the series.

The 7-foot Collins started against the Magic to provide a more physical presence against Dwight Howard. He played only 12:00 minutes in the first three games against the Bulls.
