Game Thread: Pelicans at Hawks

Note: I will not be covering tonight's game. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's fine intern Khadrice Rollins will fill in for me as a spend (very) little time with my family before departing on eight-day, five-game road trip that will include me in Salt Lake City on Thanksgiving Day. You will be able to find his reports on Thanks.
