As Grant Hill, part of the new team owner group looked on Hawks win their home preseason opener 100-86 over the San Antonio Spurs. Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 19 points. Kyle Korver and Paul Milsap each scored 13 pts. With Korver hitting 3 of 6 3 pt shots.
He is coming back from injury and post season surgery and looked a lot like the deadly shooter we saw in the first 2/3 of last year. His 2 threes help ignite a 14-2 run to end 3rd quarter and give Atlanta a 73-64 lead after 3 quarters. 7’3″ Edy Tavares hit a FT and a nice follow up dunk also in that stretch. Kent Bazemore had huge slam to start 4th that brought crowd to their feet. It’s only preseason, but the Hawks are bigger and more athletic than before. Not to mention Thabo Sefalosha is almost at 100%. This team looks poised to have a stellar season, and make another deep postseason run
