The Hawks and Wizards tip off the 2016-2017 season on Thursday night. Join us.

The Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards face off on Thursday night, as the 2016-2017 NBA season begins for both squads. While the league has been up and running for two days, both of these Southeast Division rivals were forced (by the schedule) to wait on pins and needles and, in short, it will be good to have basketball back.

Mike Budenholzer's team is at relatively full strength for this game (even without Tiago Splitter and Mike Scott) and the same can be said for the Wizards. Stay tuned throughout the night and, before we get started, here are the starting lineups for the game:

Hawks

PG - Dennis Schröder

SG - Kyle Korver

SF - Kent Bazemore

PF - Paul Millsap

C- Dwight Howard

Wizards

PG - John Wall

SG - Bradley Beal

SF - Otto Porter

PF - Markieff Morris

C - Marcin Gortat
