With a win over the Toronto Raptors the Atlanta Hawks will have made the playoffs for five consecutive seasons. With all things considered, is an awesome achievement for a franchise that hadn't made the playoffs for eight consecutive seasons prior too. Of course, the malaise that comes along with being the Atlanta Hawks is that they are once again sitting in the middle of the pack of the Eastern Conference.
Currently sitting at the No. 5 seed, the Hawks are likely to face the Boston Celtics in the first round and will face the boys from Beantown on Friday night. Can the Hawks get out of the first round? Or is this another season where they came and went with nary a peep made when the postseason comes? We'll find out in a few weeks.
Here are the next five games for the Hawks, including two potential playoff teams at the end of the week.
