Atlanta Hawks: Top 5 Games in 2014-15

1 of 7

The Atlanta Hawks’ season is quickly approaching. The offseason is starting to wind down and the team is becoming focused on training camp and the upcoming 2014-15 season as they try to make it eight straight years with a trip to the playoffs.

The road to the playoffs for the Hawks became a little more clear as the NBA schedule was released.

Atlanta is looking to improve on their 38-44 mark from last season as they head into the season. This goal should be able to be accomplished thanks to last season’s record for the Hawks being mostly attributing to injuries among key players, such as Al Horford’s season-ending torn pectoral muscle in late December.

The Atlanta Hawks were projected to finish seventh in the East at 42-40 by ESPN, and we here at Soaring Down South took a stab at some of our own predictions here.

This time, with the NBA schedule released, we take a look at some key games to watch this season.
