Memphis Grizzlies vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

The Atlanta Hawks finally hit the road on Saturday evening, leaving the cocoon of home after a six-game stint at Philips Arena. The Memphis Grizzlies serve as the opponent this time around and it is a (very) difficult spot for Atlanta given the fact that the Hawks played a grueling game on Friday while Memphis took the day off.

Throw in a rough travel schedule and the Hawks will be fighting an uphill battle against a playoff-bound team from the West. To make matters more interesting, Dwight Howard (rest) will miss the game and that could have interesting ramifications for Atlanta's rotation.

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