    Atlanta is 27-11 since Nate McMillan took over as coach. They’ve been a legitimately great team with him at the helm. Worth noting.

    Hideously weak path though.

    Even good names either rested or fell apart with injuries.

    They got destroyed by 20+ by the Sixers both times (once by 40+).

    Just seeing the Knicks do well kind of pleases me.

    Would be good for the league if they could be somewhat successful for a bit

    Especially with Brooklyn up there too...

    This

    Good matchup of offense vs defense to gauge where the league is at

    Right. I can see PA jerking off once rose and the knicks win in this series.

    Dudes are tripping in here. Shallow, headline fans. This is going to be a very good series.

    Should be a close series. Hawks SHOULD win it on paper, but the Knicks have matched up well against them (3 - 0 in the RS) and they have the best defense in the league, with an experienced vet in Rose, who I trust more in crunch time than anyone on the Hawks tbh. Thibs is also the better coach. Nate McMillan doesn't have a great track record in the POs, hasn't made it out of the 2nd round and has been swept 3 out of the last runs. Hasn't won a Playoff series in 16 years.

    The Hawks have also dealt with a lot of injuries. Deandre Hunter looks like he's going to be healthy.

    That 40 point loss to the Sixers was on the road in a back-to-back without Trae.

    In the same timeframe they've beaten the Heat, Bucks, Blazers, and Suns. All were healthy.
