The Atlanta Hawks had a chance to clinch a playoff spot Sunday night against the Toronto Raptors, but the Hawks had a poor performance and lost 102-86. In addition to not clinching a playoff spot, the loss also put the Hawks a half game behind the Celtics for the No. 4 spot and home court advantage.
Right now the Hawks have ix games left and the odds of them falling out of a playoff spot is unlikely since they are four games ahead of the Knicks at the No. 8 spot and six games ahead of the Bucks who are at the No. 9 spot.
The focus for the Hawks is to first get that playoff clinching win and then try to get home court advantage for the first round of the playoffs.
