Atlanta Hawks Clinch Another Consecutive Playoff Berth!

After nearly a decade of not being able to make the playoffs, the Hawks find themselves in a playoff seat for the 9th straight season!

When most thought the Hawks probably didn’t have a chance earlier in the season nearly falling out of contention, and expectations of a 60 win repeat, Atlanta managed to punch it’s way through yet again. With winning 9 of their last 10 games and ramping up their defense to one of the best in the league (6th in oppg), it looks like the trade off for points to defend payed off much better than expected.

All Atlanta needs to do is take care of business against Toronto (0-2 on season series), and prove they can beat the better teams. Not to mention, if Toronto can make it out of the 1st round this time as well as Atlanta, they will certainly meet again. The first of the last two meetings will be March 30th, followed by April 7th. The Hawks lost the 1st 2 games against the Raptors. The first by 10 points, and 8 points the second time around.
