Predicted bane of the Hawks' existence: Dwight Howard's rebounding.
Most important stat with less than three hours before game time? 0-0. The head to head record, the offensive efficiency, the rebounding rate, the player matchups, none of it matters come tip off. All that matters is whether the Hawks can win, and they can. The record is 0-0, and if that stat changes in the Hawks favor, this is more than a series, this is a chance to do something special.
Key to the game that has yet to be mentioned on this site? Transition defense.
