NBA schedule 2012: Hawks open season Friday night

Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

Atlanta hosts new-look Houston in their opener Friday.

The Atlanta Hawks make their season debut Friday against the Houston Rockets at 7:30 p.m.

The Hawks, who have had to wait longer than most NBA teams to get started this season, will play a Rockets team that is already 1-0 this season.

Houston and new star James Harden, who they acquired just days earlier, knocked off the Detroit Pistons, 105-96, on Wednesday night. Harden was impressive in his debut, scoring 37 points and dishing out 12 assists. He also had four steals.

Atlanta will be back in action Sunday. The Hawks will hit the road to play the Oklahoma City Thunder at 7 p.m.

The Miami Heat, who beat the Boston Celtics, 120-107, on opening night Tuesday, will also play Friday and Saturday night. On Friday, Miami will be on the road to play the Knicks. On Saturday, Miami will host the Denver Nuggets at 7:30 p.m.
