Final: Raptors 109, Hawks 102. #ATLHawks

Jaryd Wilson

Jeff Kyle Mike All in the 20-point club.

Jaryd Wilson

If there's one thing we've learned, it's that you can't relax when you play us.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks have attempted 15 free throws, Raptors 29

Lang Greene

Chris Bosh is 3-of-4 from three-point range tonight. The rest of the HEAT have shot 2-of-20 from beyond the arc. Ouch.

Lang Greene

Pau Gasol looking real good in his Chicago Bulls debut tonight.

Lang Greene

#MansGame for Roy Hibbert tonight ... 22 points, 8 rebounds and 7 blocks

Lang Greene

Sloan had a drink of water here in Atlanta with the Hawks but couldn't stick. Found a nice little niche in Indy. Happy for him.

Jaryd Wilson

More of this guy... http://t.co/GhddKWQKUd

Lang Greene

Donald Sloan got the start tonight at point guard for Pacers. He finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists in victory over Philly

Kris Willis

But he plays hard! @Patrick_Laney RT @BTRowland: At least we have this. RT @detroitbadboys: This is the Josh Smith show and I hate it.

Jason Walker

Some vintage November 2013 Atlanta Hawks right there. Korver three, Al step in jump shot.

Jaryd Wilson

Lou Williams hits a buzzer beater, and things have gotten ugly north of the border with Toronto up 86-71 after 3.

Jason Walker

Hawks / Raptors: where everything is either a Toronto offensive rebound, a Hawk personal foul or a shot of Coach Bud upset.

Jaryd Wilson

Paul has a double-double (13 points, 10 rebounds). Al also with 10 boards.

Jason Walker

Oh Tyler Hansbrough, you are the NBA’s Ziggy - will you ever win?

Kris Willis

Same old Same old RT @BTRowland: Seeing that Josh Smith shot a three on his first touch of the season. That’s real life.

Jason Walker

Just tuned in for first part of the third - defensive rebounding still a problem and the Raptors look twice as big as ATL - could be me

Lang Greene

Kyle Lowry is everything I thought Raymond Felton would be in the league.

Jaryd Wilson

4 threes from Kyle 8 boards from Al Here are the complete first half stats: on.nba.com/1tk1Hqk

Lang Greene

Hawks allow 60 first half points. Never a good thing.

Jaryd Wilson

Tough finish to Q2 for the boys, but Jeff's buzzer beater pulls us within 8. 60-52 at halftime.

Buddy Grizzard

(Yes, this season is going to be a roller coaster)

Buddy Grizzard

I was ready to declare the Hawks' season over... but then they rallied to within 51-50... HAWKS BACK IN CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENTION!!!

Steve Koonin

It's hard to stop @Teague0 when he is driving like that...

Jaryd Wilson

67% from three for the season is realistic, right?

Jaryd Wilson

Oh you ball movement, you.

Lang Greene

Paul Millsap with the shoeshine on Jonas V

Jaryd Wilson

Mike Scott went 8/8 in the preseason finale. He's 4/4 so far tonight.

Jaryd Wilson

Dennis the 11th player Coach Bud has used already. #Depth

Jaryd Wilson

We're off and running in 2014-15! Raptors lead 24-22 after 1. Mike Scott's 5 lead the way.

Jaryd Wilson

Coach Bud said he liked the second unit's pace better than the starters' in the preseason. A nice spark here from Group 2.

Jaryd Wilson

The solution to all problems: Mike Scott threes.

Steve Koonin

Should we call that a "Baze-Swat?"

Steve Koonin

Here we go #Atlanta!! It's game time! 82 to go... We're all in this together

Kris Willis

Thankful for another NBA season. Lets do this

Jaryd Wilson

ROLL CALL! Where are you watching/listening/following tonight's game?

Jaryd Wilson

This dude is getting ready to begin his 16th NBA season: bit.ly/1sH1r0J

Jason Walker

The opposite. RT @hoopinion: The Hawks’ season starts in 45 minutes. Game 7 starts in 80 minutes. Reasonable opportunity to unfollow, imo.

Buddy Grizzard

Per @Chris Vivlamore Adreian Payne and John Jenkins are on the inactive list for tonight's Hawks-Raptors tilt in Toronto

Kris Willis

Payne, Jenkins inactive against Raptors sbnation.com/e/6893366

Jaryd Wilson

John Jenkins and Adreian Payne are the two "inactives" for us tonight.

Buddy Grizzard

Awkwardly failed to connect on a high five at the office this morning with a co-worker. My goodness. Feel like a failure at life. Lol.

Shelvin Mack

Blessed to be starting my 4th NBA season today....#thankful instagram.com/p/uvSIkmMl-Z/

Paul Millsap

First game tonight. Let's get it!

Jason Walker

The #FreeGurley lesson is to never mess with the @NCAA's money. You can mess with girls or drugs, but never the green.

OPENING NIGHT! We're north of the border to face the Raptors at 7:30 on @SportSouth and @929TheGame. http://t.co/pUNQZRmmiO

Kris Willis

People acting like this Randle injury is killing the Lakers. They were going to stink anyway

Kris Willis

The NCAA's uneven discipline continues. What a joke

Steve Koonin

It's time. The season is here. It's time to rally behind our guys. Our players and fans make me proud to be a part of this team & city #ATL

Lang Greene

Going to miss these three when they ultimately decide to hang up the high tops instagram.com/p/utxqgmRh3f/

Kris Willis

Basketball is back! Hawks open season on the road against Raptors. Here is a preview to get you set: sbnation.com/e/6851166

Lang Greene

Man. This is tough to watch.

Jason Walker

Is that a broken bone precaution they are taking with Randle?

Lang Greene

Worst supporting cast ... Kobe's 2014-15 Lakers or Michael Jordan's 2002 Wizards squad?

Lang Greene

Excluding Kobe Bryant the Lakers are currently shooting 3-for-14 from the field

Lang Greene

People taking pot shots at the Lakers while they can. This could be first missed playoff appearance in consecutive seasons since mid 1970s

Lang Greene

Pelicans Top Six guys are strong: Jrue, EG, Tyreke, Brow, Asik and Ryan Anderson. After that the bench leaves much to be desired

Lang Greene

I want to commit to Pelicans making a run at playoff spot out West, but Jimmer Fredette and Austin Rivers combined for 38 mins tonight

Lang Greene

No Tiago Splitter. No Kawhi Leonard. But the Spurs still get the W to open the 2014-15 regular season

Lang Greene

Anthony Davis will gets lot of love (rightfully so), but Nikola Vucevic also put in work tonight too ... 15 pts, 23 rebs and 4 blks
