The Hawks come into the game having just defeated the New Orleans Hornets and are slowly getting healthy as the regular season approaches. The nagging injuries that have took place have cost the Hawks some valuable development time and they are trying to play catch up now. Tonight’s game against the Magic will give coach Drew the opportunity to perhaps deploy his bigger lineup at Magic center Dwight Howard. Also worth watching will be how the Hawks try and defend Howard.
Despite an underwhelming offseason, a terrible end to last season, and the fact that it’s only preseason, I find myself looking forward to this game. Here’s hoping the Hawks come out and show us something.
