This Week's Hawks Schedule: Tuesday Sixers (Home), Saturday Bobcats (Home)

The Hawks went 3-0 last week with victories over Toronto, L.A. Clippers, and Washington. Atlanta now trails Chicago by two games for the third seed in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks passed the Orlando Magic last week and now own a game and a half lead over the Magic. Things are interesting at the bottom of the standings, as Indiana is riding a four game winning streak under new coach Frank Vogel and are currently holding down the eighth and final playoff spot. Charlotte is one game back of Indiana while Milwaukee is 2.5 games back after a four game losing streak.

Dallas is the hottest team in the NBA right now riding a current eight game winning streak. Portland currently owns the eighth and final playoff spot but Memphis is only a half a game back. The Grizzlies have been playing really well winning eight of their last ten. Steve Nash's Suns are 1.5 games back of Portland in the West.
