The Atlanta Hawks schedule was announced yesterday, along with every other team in the league, and with the regular season still months away this is going to be the focus of many NBA fans.
Mike Budenholzer’s squad will open the season on the road against the Toronto Raptors on October 29 before a home game against the Indiana Pacers on November 1.
With 21 back-to-back games, the Hawks are near the top of the league, which is a bit unfortunate. The longest homestand for the team comes at the end of January, from the 19th to the 31st and includes games against the Pacers, Thunder and Nets.
Here are some of the highlights of the schedule, per the release linked above:
The Hawks will find themselves at home for several games surrounding the holidays, including contests against Toronto (Wednesday, Nov. 26th), New Orleans (Friday, Nov. 28th) and Charlotte (Saturday, Nov. 29th) just before and after Thanksgiving, and the LA Clippers (Tuesday, Dec. 23rd), Milwaukee (Friday, Dec. 26th) and Cleveland (Tuesday, Dec. 30th) in late December.
Of the 41 contests at Philips Arena, 22 will be weekend games (13 Friday/five Saturday/four Sunday). The Sunday contests feature earlier tip times – Dec. 7th vs. Denver (3:30 p.m.), Jan. 11th vs. Washington (3 p.m.), Jan. 25th vs. Minnesota (6 p.m.) and Mar. 22nd vs. San Antonio (3 p.m.).
Other notable matchups include the Cleveland Cavaliers (Dec. 30th and Mar. 6th), Los Angeles Lakers (Nov. 18th) and Miami Heat (Nov. 14th and Mar. 27th).
