It’s time for Basketball: Spurs at Hawks

After a series of blockbuster trades, the Spurs are back in action tonight against the Hawks

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at San Antonio Spurs Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

The 13-point loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this week seems like a million years ago. Wednesday’s Spurs couldn’t match up to Cleveland’s interior size, and many of those guys aren’t even on the team any more. After all of the chaos of the trade deadline, a lot of teams in the NBA are reeling, but the Spurs will have to rely on their All Star guard Dejounte Murray to take care of Trae Young and pull off an upset win against the Hawks. The interior defense of Jakob Poeltl (still on the team) should be an advantage for the Silver and Black, and with Devin Vassell probably taking over the starting shooting guard spot, it should be interesting to see how all of the pieces mesh.

Game Prediction:

Goran Dragic will start and score 40 for the Silver and Black.

Trade everybody, they said
It seems they got their wish
Fans are filled with dread
About the fallout from this ish

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
