It was a roller coaster season for the Atlanta Hawks filled with plenty of ups and downs, but overall one that could be deemed a success after making the playoffs for a seventh straight season despite countless injuries and nearly upsetting the top-seeded Indiana Pacers in the first-round.
Following their Game 7 loss at Indiana in the series finale, Hawks players made it a point to thank their beloved fans via Twitter for the support throughout the year and expressed their encouragement for next season.
Just wanna say thank you to the city of Atlanta and all the hawks fans for supporting us this year… We are on the rise
