Having lost seven of their last ten games, the Atlanta Hawks are now closer to the sixth seed than the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. Atlanta leads the Knicks by just 2.5 games and trail Orlando by 3.5. The ship needs to be righted and Friday night's trip to Chicago would be a great place to turn things around. Keep an eye on the race for eighth place as Indiana has also dropped seven of ten and have just a one game lead over Charlotte and a game and a half lead over Milwaukee.
