It was reported that the Atlanta Hawks game on December 5, 2012 against the Denver Nuggets will now be picked up by ESPN.  They changed the tip-off time from 7:30pm E.T. to 8pm E.T.  ESPN dropped the Chicago Bulls-Cleveland Cavaliers game on that date (did they get information that Derrick Rose will still be out?).  ESPN has also dropped to Hawks vs. Miami Heat game on February 20, 2012.  The Hawks-Nuggets game is now part of the NBA Wednesday double-header that night, along with the Dallas Mavericks-Los Angelse Clippers game.  It has not been announced yet whether or not the Hawks-Heat game will be picked up by SportSouth or Fox Sports South.
