*26 for us (Thank you fans)

Chris Vivlamore

Pistons 29, Hawks 26 after one quarter. Shelvin Mack with 9 points (3 3-pointers) to lead #ATLHawks.

Jaryd Wilson

A first quarter that started with some promise turned into a deficit. It's 29-23 Pistons after 1.

Hawks first sub is Pero Antic for Al Horford. #ATLHawks

It's a 6-7 start from the field for us, and we have 5 assists on those 6 buckets. #BudMovement

Caron Butler (waiting to enter game) yells 'Oh no!' as Kyle Korver lines up a 3-pointer. #ATLHawks

Based on what I saw last night, my inactive players on opening night are Muscala and Jenkins.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks have 15 players under contract. Only 13 will be active opening night. My question marks are Schröder, Payne, Muscala and Jenkins.

Buddy Grizzard

I didn't take part in the voting for #NBARank but Kobe at 40 sounds about right to me.

I don't think it was about resting guys @bochurney I think Bud is specifically interested in throwing his reserves in the fire.

Buddy Grizzard

HawksHoop's @bochurney on how the Hawks more or less beat the Bulls, final score aside: hawkshoop.com/hawks-pretty-m…

Kent Bazemore

Two games since 04-06-14.. Feeling great.

Buddy Grizzard

Payne was actually more solid defensively than I expected, and mistakes he made were predictable. Muscala and Jenkins gotta step it up.

Buddy Grizzard

So in conclusion, I'm really liking our point guard rotation. Mack is rock solid and for the first time I'm having optimism re: Schröder

Buddy Grizzard

And he had several clutch plays down the stretch. It was two badly missed shots by Muscala and dribbling exhibition by Payne that killed it.

Buddy Grizzard

Schröder I expressed the most doubt about earlier today hawkshoop.com/hawks-analysis… but he really showed me something: 11 PTS 6 AST 50% FG 3 TO

Buddy Grizzard

Payne looked like a rookie. He did some good things and some bad. He had good moments guarding Pau and Noah. No complaints. He'll get better

Buddy Grizzard

Not sure what John Jenkins did to go plus-19 through 3 qtrs but the 4th qtr exposed why his 4th-year extension remains a major ???

Buddy Grizzard

...because he can shoot. Those couple of bad bricks in the 4th were not a good look. Gotta have composure to knock those down under the gun.

Buddy Grizzard

Since @bochurney got the recap, I will share my observations here. Muscala needs to get that confidence up. They picked him over Ayon...

Al Horford

Good game vs the Bulls. Let's keep getting better each game. #Hawks #HawksRising
