Game Thread: Atlanta Hawks vs. Memphis Grizzlies

The home preseason opener is here.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

After three games on the road to begin the 2017-2018 preseason, the Atlanta Hawks are in action locally this evening. Philips Arena isn’t quite ready yet so the game is taking place at Georgia Tech’s McCamish Pavilion but there will be a full broadcast from Fox Sports Southeast and the regular season inches ever closer.

There are no injury concerns for the Hawks and this could be a very intriguing window into the near future. At the very least, it will be live NBA basketball, which is always nice.

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