November 3rd Hawks @ Heat

Are the Miami Heat back? They might be. With a full season out of Goran Dragic, a healthy Dwyane Wade, the return of Chris Bosh, Hassan Whiteside’s rim protection, and a high-ceiling draft pick in Justise Winslow, the Heat are a trendy pick to return to elite status in the Eastern Conference. Not if the Hawks have anything to say about it. This is a perfect opportunity for Atlanta to assert their dominance on the Southeastern division.

November 21st Hawks @ Cavaliers

The Eastern Conference Finals were not pretty for the Hawks. LeBron James and his LeBronettes dominated Atlanta on their way to the NBA Finals, sweeping the Hawks 4-0. Revenge is not a dish best served in November, but psychologically getting a victory over the conference rivals that thoroughly destroyed them last season might be helpful.
