The Atlanta Hawks‘ road schedule sees them go on five trips where they play four or more games in a row on the road. This includes a series where they play three road games then a home game which then gives a back-to-back at the start of the next two road games. They only have three runs where they play at home for anything more than three games.

The first homestand starts in early November and is four games long. When looking at this month, it could make or break the Hawks’ season. When you drill down further into the schedule, this homestand could go a long way to determining if they have success in the month.

The first game that the Hawks play on this homestand is after their first long road trip of the season. Fortunately, they have a two-day break before they host the New Orleans Pelicans in a matchup of two future powerhouses from their respective conferences.

The Atlanta Hawks’ challenges on this homestand are real.

The next game for the Hawks on this homestand is against the Milwaukee Bucks and while they have the Giannis Antetokounmpo whisperer in Onyeka Okongwu, this is going to be a very tough game. The Bucks have been near the top of the Eastern Conference for a number of seasons and there is no reason to think that will change the season.

Then the Hawks play a back-to-back against the Utah Jazz, where they will want to get their starters as much rest as they can. The reason for this is the next night they host the Philadelphia 76ers who are expected to be at or near the top of the East again.
