The Atlanta Hawks will be making their 2010-11 TV debut tonight at 7 on NBATV. Unless you have already had the opportunity to get down to Phillips, this will be your first chance to see the Hawks in action. Thus far, they've gone 1-3 in preseason as the focus has been less on winning-which was important to Woodson-and more on implementing the new offense. They've also been struck with a rash of injuries, but for the most part, they should be healthy tonight. Jeff Teague is the only member of the rotation who is not likely to play.
Even though this is a meaningless contest, the Hawks' players will be looking for something to feel good about after getting completely trounced by the Magic in the second round of the playoffs last season. The final score may not be important, but finding something to feel good about will be worth a shot in the arm for a team hoping to continue building.
The Hawks only have three games left in the preseason, with the regular season kicking off in Memphis next Wednesday.
