NBA Power Rankings 2012: Atlanta Hawks Land At No. 9

The latest NBA Power Rankings are out from SB Nation's Tom Ziller and the Atlanta Hawks are ranked among the top ten at No. 9 overall. Winners of four in a row and six of their last seven, the Hawks are among the hottest teams in the league right now and that's a good sign heading into the latter part of the regular season schedule. Ziller writes:

Unfortunately, Sunday's 4OT victory is still only worth one game in the win column. It's looking more likely every day, though, that the Hawks or Pacers will have first-round home court against the Atlantic champion. That's an important target, even though Atlanta is comfortable drawing No. 3 Orlando.

Ziller ranks the 30-20 Hawks as the fourth best team in the Eastern Conference at this point with the Chicago Bulls on top of everyone.
