Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Atlanta Hawks even their preseason record at 3-3 as they defeat the Dallas Mavericks 110-94.

The Atlanta Hawks scored the first eight points of Saturday's matchup against the Dallas Mavericks and never looked back cruising to a 110-94 win. The win evens their record at 3-3 on the preseason and is there third straight impressive performance at home. Atlanta is 3-0 at Philips Arena during the preseason but is 0-3 on the road. They will wrap up the preseason schedule on Friday in Detroit against the Pistons.

Injuries were the theme of this game as Jeff Teague, Zaza Pachulia and John Jenkins were all out of action. Al Horford joined the group on the sidelines leaving in the second quarter with a sore calf. None of the injuries are thought to be serious but Atlanta would like to enter the regular season with all of their key players healthy.
