Hawks, Bucks game snowed out


As we said might happen, due to unusually heavy snows that have essentially shut Atlanta down, the league has decided to postpone the Haws/Bucks game scheduled for Tuesday at Phillips Arena.

The game has been rescheduled for March 15 Philips Arena in Atlanta.

This is probably the smart move — last night the Bobcats hosted the Grizzlies despite a strong snowstorm in another city not used to that kind of weather. About 1,000 people showed up and the upper sections of the arena were blacked out, with all fans invited down to the lower bowl area.

Rather than repeat that and risk injury to fans trying to travel on icy roads, the Hawks and league took the safe route. The Atlanta Thrashers of the NHL canceled their practice and a number of other things in the city have been closed for the day due to the unusual weather.
