Atlanta Hawks: 100-1

  • 12 Sep, 2019

We make a jump into 100-1 land with the Atlanta Hawks–one doesn’t feel nearly enough. Ahead of Al Horford went with (another) torn pectoral last year, Mike Budenholzer’s birds were 16-13, appearing like the third-best group in the East. The year with a 22-31 mark shut out after losing its best player. Of course, since the East was the East, the Hawks made the playoffs. This season, Horford is healthy and looking just nice in preseason play. Plus, Paul Millsap is currently playing for a contract, Jeff Teague remains one of the least appreciated talents of the league and Thabo Sefolosha is now in town to deliver a few perimeter defense that is stifling. Nobody’s saying that the Hawks are a lot of world-beaters, however they feel like postseason locks. And they may very well finish among the conference’s top . In the minimum, they will jack a ton of threes (just the Houston Rockets attempted more in 2013-14) and look after the ball (Atlanta’s assist-to-turnover ratio was second best at the East). That is a recipe for success. Do not sleep on the Hawks. Read more: sixthdaysoccer.com
