The Hawks had a three-game winning streak last week, but although the wins came against some of the worst teams in the NBA in Detroit and Charlotte, Atlanta moved up three spots to No. 9 in the NBA Power Rankings by SB Nation's Tom Ziller.
How to preserve win streaks in one easy step: get into the same division as the Bobcats.
The Hawks broke 100 points in all three games during the week, including scoring 120 points against the Bobcats on April 4. The Hawks currently sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. Six of their final nine games are against teams currently in the playoffs, but the bottom of the East is so weak that it really would be a shock to see the Hawks miss the playoffs.
