And Now, The Preseason

On the heels of the release of the regular season schedule on Tuesday, the Hawks released their preseason slate today as well. The highlights? 7 games, 3 at Philips Arena, and 1 nationally televised performance on Oct. 23 at Orlando. Here it is, in all it’s glory:

The two games that probably holds the most interest for me are the opener against Chris Paul and the Hornets on Oct. 7 and the game against the Wizards on Oct. 19, mostly because we’ll see both teams very early on in the regular season. Atlanta and New Orleans play twice within the first 14 games of the season (the Hawks host the Hornets on Nov. 14, then play at New Orleans on Nov. 21), while Washington comes to town for the second game of the season on Oct. 30.

Anything stand out to you?
