Game Thread: No shootaround not a trend

For the second straight night game, the Hawks chose not to hold a morning shootaround and opted instead for a late afternoon pregame walkthrough.

The Nuggets have, for the time being, eliminated shootarounds.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said before Friday's game with the Thunder that he doesn't see the Hawks moving away from shootarounds.

"I wouldn't say it is a trend," Budenholzer said. "But obviously, it's something we are mixing in. Trying to use it at the appropriate time and place. We had a good practice yesterday so we are just trying to feel it out."
