The Atlanta Hawks will hit the road for six of the next seven games beginning Friday in Philadelphia against the Atlantic Division leading Sixers. The Hawks return home on Saturday with a matchup against Cleveland before embarking on a five game trip that will have them crisscrossing the country.
The good news is that there are no back-to-backs involved in the five game trip but the Hawks could be cashing in some frequent flyer miles along the way. The trip tips off in Milwaukee on Monday and continues in San Antonio on Wednesday. Then it is back north for a game in Detroit on Friday before heading back south to New Orleans on Sunday. The trip will wrap up in Toronto on Tuesday, January 31.
Here is a look at the next seven games:
|Friday, Jan 20||@Philadelphia (10-4)|
|Saturday, Jan 21||vs Cleveland (6-7)|
|Monday, Jan 23||@Milwaukee (4-9)|
|Wednesday, Jan 25||@San Antonio (10-5)|
|Friday, Jan 27||@ Detroit (3-12)|
|Sunday, Jan 29||@ New Orleans (3-12)|
|Tuesday, Jan 31||@ Toronto (4-11)|
After this stretch the Hawks will open four game home stand against some stiffer competition with Memphis, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Indiana all paying visits to Philips Arena.
