With the Atlanta Hawks 0-1 so far in the preseason, the team will look to bounce back against the Orlando Magic. Read on to explore six players to keep an eye on in the game.

The Atlanta Hawks were handily defeated in the team’s first preseason game against a motivated and energetic Pelicans team. The Hawks piled up a gargantuan amount of turnovers on the way to losing by 24 points, 133 to 109.

Zion Williamson was everything the NBA bargained for as he produced myriad highlights on the way to helping his team trounce the defensively challenged Hawks.

For your reference:

However, despite the lopsided score line, there were plenty of positives for Hawks fans to take away from the contest – including the promising play of the team’s rookies: De’Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish and Bruno Fernando. To a lesser extent, Two-Way signing Charlie Brown also looked quite good.

Though Trae Young only scored 9 points and committed 8 ugly turnovers, his passing was staggering (as always), and his dribbles moves were as saucy as usual.

However, looking ahead, the Hawks will be able to right the ship in the team’s second game of the preseason against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. Let’s explore six players – three from each team – to keep an eye on in the game.
