I know it says that the Hawks are 0.5 GB the Raptors but that hasn't stopped teams from being higher seeded than other teams with better records in the past due to tiebreakers/divisions and such. It's too early in the season for any of that to be a factor so far though.
Perhaps you're right and they just had a brainfart although I would be skeptical over them making such an obvious error. I mean, it's not exactly what I'd call subtle. They not only have to place the Raptors underneath the Hawks but also give them the number 2 seeding while noting that the Hawks are one win less than the Raptors.
