Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Garrett Temple (sprained left ankle) will be out for the rest of the night, per the Pelicans – 8:24 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
I enjoyed Reddish’s assist to Gallinari. He should really add enough release valve for Cam when stuff isn’t open for him. – 8:23 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Garrett Temple sprained his left ankle and will not return, Pelicans say. – 8:23 PM

New Orleans Pelicans PR @PelicansPR
Garrett Temple (left ankle sprain) will not return. – 8:22 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
John Collins has the Hawks back in this. He’s played very well so far this season when he’s been on the floor with the second unit. – 8:22 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Hawks making this run without Trae isn’t great – 8:22 PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Gallo is such an older model robot 🤣🤣🤣 – 8:22 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
I’m only half joking when I say this but can Brandon Ingram win Most Improved again? – 8:20 PM

Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Brandon Ingram is invested on the defensive end. – 8:17 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Brandon Ingram missed the shot. BUT he was the first Pelican down underneath the rim on the other end and ripped the ball out of John Collins’ hands.
That didn’t happen last season. – 8:17 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Hawks down 33-19 at the end of the first quarter.
Pelicans killed the Hawks in transition. Hawks have started 8/29 from the floor, 0/10 from 3.
Hawks not named Trae Young: 4/20 FG – 8:12 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Very rough first quarter for the Hawks, who trail the Pelicans 33-19.
Hawks shot 27.6% FG and went 0-10 from 3.
Had 4 turnovers and 3 assists. – 8:12 PM

Will Guillory @WillGuillory
End of the 1st: Pelicans 33, Hawks 19
Ingram 8 pts & 2 assts
Temple 6 pts
Graham 5 pts
Bench points
NOP: 13
ATL: 4 – 8:12 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Despite the last few empty possessions, impressive first quarter by the Pelicans. They lead the Hawks 33-19.
Brandon Ingram set the tone early with 8 points, but there were contributions up and down the roster. – 8:11 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Pels went Kira-Trey-NAW-BI-Naji for that last possession of the 1Q.
It turned into a shot-clock violation.
Still – Pelicans play one of their best quarters of the young season and take a 33-19 lead into the 2Q. – 8:11 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Garrett Temple eating in transition? Garrett Temple eating in transition. – 8:08 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Brandon Ingram got out his seat on the bench to start celebrating when that pass from Kira to Trey was still in the air. – 8:07 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Danilo Gallinari is in for his season debut. – 8:06 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Hawks allowing 1.5 points per possession to the Pelicans so far and ATL has only scored 0.93.
4 turnovers, 0/4 from 3 too
Another slow start for Atlanta – 8:04 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Tonight, Trae Young became the fastest player in Hawks franchise history to reach the 5,000-point milestone (208th game), per @Atlanta Hawks PR. – 8:02 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
We’re going to do this thing now where Zion Williamson misses so many games that he becomes underrated. – 8:02 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his second defensive rebound tonight, John Collins reached 1,415 for his career, surpassing Moses Malone to capture 19th place on the career franchise list. – 8:00 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Garrett Temple is getting eaten alive by Trae Young.
And now he’s committed two fouls back to back in trying to stay with Trae.
Nickeil with the great help to prevent GT from getting burned again. – 8:00 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Free piece of coaching advice to anyone who may need it: don’t have Garrett Temple guard Trae Young – 7:57 PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Trae Young leading the team by taking a dark situation and asserting himself to control the tempo, keep the team level, and weather the storm. Now the Pelicans have to take a time out to counter Trae’s impact on the game. – 7:57 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Four straight easy buckets by the Hawks has cut the Pelicans lead to 18-15. Good timeout by Willie. – 7:56 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
At age 23 years, 38 days, Young is the second-youngest player in Hawks history to reach 5,000 (John Drew, 23y/33d). The five youngest are Drew, Young, Josh Smith (23y/100d), Bob Pettit (24y/86d) and Marvin Williams (24y/290d). – 7:55 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his fourth point tonight, Trae Young has 5,000 points for his career in his 208th game, becoming the fastest player in Hawks franchise history to reach that total. The five fastest are Young, Pettit (212), Pete Maravich (218), Joe Johnson (227) and Dominique Wilkins (230). – 7:55 PM

Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
These Pelicans have a much better give-a-shit rating to start games than at any point last season. – 7:54 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Great defense by Nickeil right there. John Collins had the mismatch, but NAW picked up the charge.
Collins complaining, but NAW’s nose already stuffed with a tissue. (Replay confirms contact) – 7:53 PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
John Collins the least respected 100 million dollar player in the league – 7:53 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
More early foul trouble for John Collins tonight. He’s got two in his first three minutes. – 7:53 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
John Collins has once again got into early foul trouble. He’s on the bench four minutes into the game. – 7:52 PM

Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Two quick fouls for Herb Jonas and John Collins. Both have to take an early seat. – 7:52 PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Hawks getting everybody involved early – everyone has missed a shot – 7:52 PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Herbert Jones started the game matched up with Trae Young and was pressuring him all over the floor. Unfortunately for Jones he picked up a foul on a Young drive, then a second on a fast-break charge. Jones also swished a 3 in an action-packed few minutes. Temple subs in for him – 7:51 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Like the aggressiveness from Herb Jones on offense, but not with a foul already. If part of the Pels’ gameplan was use Herb on Trae for 94 feet, picking up 2 fouls early doesn’t help things. – 7:50 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Brandon Ingram is cooking right now – 7:50 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
How is Nets-Heat not the ESPN game? (He asks knowing the idea was Trae vs Zion)
But still! – 7:50 PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Love that the Hawks are getting all these teams hyped to beat them – excellent way to get resilient – 7:50 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Pelicans gonna be in national TV a bunch solely because of Herb Jones – 7:49 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Herb Jones just splashed his first career 3-pointer!
(Nice dime BI!) – 7:49 PM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Oh man if Brandon Ingram is gonna make that shot with that defense on him… – 7:48 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Going to be something to watch: Brandon Ingram going up against De’Andre Hunter. So far BI has a three and now an And-1 jumper against the Hawk.
Pelicans grab early 9-2 lead, and it looks like Trae Young is in for a long night — Herb Jones is chasing him around! – 7:48 PM

Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Herb Jones picking up Trae Young for 94 feet? – 7:47 PM

Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Pels have Herb Jones pressuring Trae Young full court to start the game – 7:46 PM

Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Nice screen by Brandon Ingram gets Devonte’ Graham a look from deep, nothing but bottom.
And that’s how we begin. – 7:46 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Herb Jones starts the game on Trae Young. Picking him up full court. – 7:46 PM

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Herb Jones just picked up Trae Young full court.
This should be fun. – 7:46 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
The small sample size of early season games means I put little stock into things that could just be anomalies.
That said, it will be interesting to see the Wizards play the Celtics and Hawks twice over the next four games as a more extended litmus test. – 7:40 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
Watching Hawks-Grizzlies on ESPN?
Wondering why Trae Young isn’t getting as many foul calls?
@crabdribbles breaks down how Young games the system and how the new rule changes impact Atlanta’s superstar.

Nate McMillan on getting Gallo back: “The other thing is just to get a look at our second unit… He hasn’t played with Cam, he hasn’t played with Kevin, he hasn’t played with Delon and Gorgui, so now we’ve got to work on that chemistry with that rotation.” – 6:12 PM

“We’ll be cautious with his minutes.” – 6:09 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Willie Green on Herb Jones’ versatility: “Herb is a guy that can play multiple positions. I think at some point in the season, we’ll go small, and he’ll be at the 5, 4 positions. We’re working with him on those things in practice with him.” – 6:08 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner

Was talking about Herb’s ability to play and defend 1-5. – 5:50 PM
