Hawks exhibition schedule includes Heat, Grizzlies


The Hawks have not released their exhibition schedule for the 2017-18 season but two games are set based on those published by opponents.

The Hawks will open the exhibition season at the Heat on Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat announced their home exhibition schedule last week.

The Hawks will host – sort of – the Grizzlies on Oct. 9 at 7:30 p.m. The Grizzlies released their five-game scheduled on Tuesday. The site of the game is listed at TBD. It likely won’t be Philips Arena due on-going renovations.

The Hawks will play fewer exhibition games due to the anticipated earlier start of the NBA regular season.
