The third Atlanta Hawks long homestand.
The third homestand would be quite a long one if you took out the away game against the Charlotte Hornets which is after home games against the Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs. What follows the Hornets game is amazing, five home games around the All-Star break.
The final game of the Hawks’ first “half” of the season is at home against the New York Knicks. The Hawks will want to go into the break on a high so this will be important to win. When they come back from the break their first game is against the Cleveland Cavaliers which will be an important game to win for seedings, as will the next game against the Brooklyn Nets.
The end of the homestand becomes a little easier with the Hawks taking on the Washington Wizards in the second-last game of their own court. They then finish this homestand against the Portland Trail Blazers at the start of March on a two-day break.
This homestand is a really good chance for the Hawks to gain some momentum going into the last part of the season. If the Hawks are going to beat some of the media pundits’ predictions for their win/loss record
