For Atlanta, all they need to hope for is that their regular season play carries over to the postseason. That will likely involve the brooms coming out (sweeping) in round one, followed by a round two victory as long as their ball movement, defense, and outside shooting remains crisp. In the Conference Finals however, a much tougher task awaits: the star-studded Cleveland Cavaliers. In the best case scenario, Coach Mike Budenholzer will take a page out of Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich’s playbook from last year’s finals against SF/PF LeBron James, where San Antonio won the series 4-1. All that is needed for a win is what the Hawks have been doing: passing and threes, as well as containing LeBron and everyone around him. Should they squeak by the Cavaliers, an even tougher task will await them in the finals, but as long as the Hawks keep doing what they’re doing, and doing it well of course, this group that nobody saw coming could take home a title.
