The snowstorm that has hit the Atlanta area has effectively shut the city down and as a result, postponed Wedneday night's contest between the Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons. The game will need to be rescheduled at a later date, but nothing has been set as of right now.

From the Hawks:

The National Basketball Association game scheduled for this evening between the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena has been postponed due to severe weather conditions in the Atlanta area.

The game will be rescheduled at a later date.

This is the second game this season to be postponed. The San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves had to postpone their game in Mexico City after a fire in the arena filled the building with smoke.
