A reason to cheer for the Hawks: Just four seasons ago, in 2004-05, the Hawks were the worst team in the NBA, compiling a dreadful 13 wins during that campaign. By 2007, Atlanta became the squad that had gone the most seasons in a row without making the playoffs (eight). They had also lost 50-plus games in four consecutive years and hadn't won an NBA title since 1958, when they were the St. Louis Hawks. The Hawks haven't made it beyond the second round of the playoffs in their time in Atlanta - that's since 1968! This could be the year that changes.
Players to Watch: Joe Johnson, Josh Smith, Mike Bibby, Marvin Williams, Al Horford
