NOTES: ALC = Alexander Coliseum; GED = Georgia Dome. The Hawks split their home games between the two facilities while their new arena is constructed. ANA = Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim. Philadelphia and Toronto decreased capacity from last season, while Dallas and Detroit increased capacity. GS played in the newly renovated Oakland Coliseum, which has increased capacity to 19,200. The Wizards' first five home games were played at US Airways Arena. "'96-97 AVG." is based on the same number of home dates teams played in '97-98. -30-
