The Atlanta Hawks kick off 2017 with a home date against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday evening and there is plenty of intrigue to this match-up. On one hand, Gregg Popovich and Mike Budenholzer will face off in an annual battle between teacher and student. On another, the Hawks can't seem to crack the code that is San Antonio, having lost 18 of the past 19 match-ups against the dynastic franchise. At any rate, this should be fun.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
