We make a major jump into 100-1 land with the Atlanta Hawks—one I am not scared to state doesn’t feel nearly large enough.
Before Al Horford went down with (another) torn pectoral last year, Mike Budenholzer’s birds were 16-13, appearing like the third-best team in the East. After losing its very best player, the year with a 22-31 mark closed out.
Of course, because the East was the East, the Hawks made the playoffs.
Horford is looking and healthy just nice in preseason play, this season . 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 presently in town to bring a few perimeter protection that is stifling.
Nobody is saying that the Hawks are a lot of world-beaters, but they feel like postseason locks. And they may finish among the conference’s top four.
In the very least, they’ll jack a lot of threes (just the Houston Rockets tried more in 2013-14) and look after the chunk (Atlanta’s assist-to-turnover ratio had been next best in the East). That is a recipe for success.
Don’t sleep on the Hawks.
