On the other hand, the Hawks’ campaign has been a little tentative and a tad inconsistent that has reduced their chance of making it to further rounds. Despite going for a 3-0 run initially in the season, the next six games saw them win just one game.
They managed to script important victories against 76ers, Timberwolves and Pistons this month. In their last game against Bucks, they were taken worn down comfortably by the Bucks in what was a tight clash. The Hawks are currently 7th in the Eastern conference and a win will do them a world of good.
