ETA: She had to have metal plates put in her face because her cheek bones were crushed and she had a brain bleed. It was horrific.
Call me an elitist or whatever but the last thing I want to do is to be packed like cattle into a crowded MARTA train after spending 3+ hours packed into the Dome. There are going to be huge lines to get on the trains. Instead, park in one of the surface lots near Ivan Allen Blvd and Williams street, have a nice stroll after the game, and then jump right onto I75/85.
I always stop at the Hamilton Holmes MARTA stop and go in. Gravy train.

You're right though, Marta is the way to go unless you just enjoy sitting in traffic. If the train is too crowded, just wait, have a snort or two from the flask and take the next one.
“That issue has gone under the bridge, under the next bridge, over the next dam and is gone.”
I wouldn't advise driving to the game Saturday night. There is also a concert at Philips Arena. Traffic will be a mess. Take MARTA, Its Smarta!
