After returning from an exhausting road-trip, the Atlanta Hawks prepare to open a four-game home stretch that begins Thursday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Here is a look at the next five games and as you can see the Hawks will host rematches with Philadelphia and Indiana over the next week.
Following the home stand, Atlanta will head to Orlando for its first matchup against the Magic this season and then return home on Sunday, February 12 for a date with the Heat. After that home game, Atlanta will hit the road for another five-game road trip which includes stops out west against the Lakers, Suns, and Trail Blazers before heading back East to take on the Bulls and the Knicks.
There is still a lot of basketball left to be played this season but this month could help determine whether or not the Hawks are going to be able to remain in the top half of the Eastern Conference race.
