    Sixers Path will probably be Celtics -> Hawks -> Nets -> Clippers. That's not a bad lineup. Lakers first two teams will likely be easy as well with the small suns and one man band nuggets. They could win those series in 5 or less.

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.
    On paper? Come on man lol They haven't beat us yet this season

    On paper they are a better team. Unless you can count on Randle to score 40 a game as he's done during the season, this series will be closer than you think. All of those games were close, and 2 of them were a long time ago before Pierce was even fired. The other was an OT game in the second game of a back to back for the Hawks, and on the road no less.

    Denadre Hunter is back. The team is playing well. Don't set yourself up to be extremely disappointed.

    Don't sleep on us, especially with our high rated defense that will definitely pick up in the playoffs. Randle, Rose, Barrett, Quickley, Burks and company is too much for y'all.

    Not sleeping on anything. The Hawks are offensively superior, Knicks defensively. It's an interesting matchup.

    Op has no clue what his talking about Hawks vs Knicks should be a very good series. Hawks were the 3rd most injured team in the league and still grabbed the 5th seed. Knicks lack top end talent and experience but play hard nosed basketball. Hawks players with playoff experience are bench players outside of Capella. I don't trust the 76rs wouldn't be surprised if they were upset.

    People who don't love the Atlanta Hawks don't like basketball.

    We've got a super exciting, talented team.

    I like the Hawks but Trae Young be foul baiting too many times. He's approaching Harden level of foul baiting.

    Knicks have been one of the healthiest teams all seasons and play their starters more minutes than any other team. They are tied with a hawks team record
    wise and the Hawks had the 3rd most injuries behind Houston and Orlando. You are crazy if you think the Knicks are a better team when both teams are healthy.

    Steph does it just as much but its a smart play when he draws fouls. They stopped calling continuation in January nobody is getting getting free throws from shooting through defenders arms.

    Hawks are not a fun team to watch because Trae is a blatant flopper. Knicks have the defense to lock him up though, so let's do this
