Atlanta Hawks Play-In Tournament Scenarios

Written by sidhatna

The Atlanta Hawks suffered a disappointing loss at the hands of the Toronto Raptors last night. It eliminated them from the 6th seed, 

Tournament teams will be the Cleveland Cavaliers, Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, and Charlotte Hornets (in their current order).

The silver lining is the Hawks still have significant control over their seeding in the Play-In Tournament.

That's a lot going on. But the good news is that if the Hawks win out, they will finish no lower than the 8th seed. 

But of course, that's a big if. Getting to the 7th or 8th seed doubles a team's chances of advancing to the Playoffs.

Following last night's loss to the Raptors, Hawks point guard Trae Young gave the following quote. 

"It's been definitely a different year. Obviously, we wish we were higher in the standings, but we're not, and we are where we are we are.
