Just got word from Hawks PR man Arthur Triche that the league has postponed the team’s scheduled game tonight at Washington due to the snow storm affecting the D.C. region.
The Wizards are stranded in Orlando after playing the Magic last night, and the Hawks’ flight did not leave as scheduled following last night’s 91-81 victory over Chicago. Both major D.C. airports have since closed.
The NBA said a makeup date for Hawks-Wizards would be announced at a later time. Triche said the last time the Hawks had a postponement was a scheduled Jan. 7, 1996, game at at New Jersey. That game was rescheduled for April 5, forcing the Hawks to play on three consecutive nights: April 4 vs. Washington, April 5 at New Jersey and April 6 vs. Philly.
