Twelve of the Hawks next fifteen games are all at Philips Arena and if Atlanta is going to make a move in the Eastern Conference then it has to start now. Atlanta enters tonight's match-up with Chicago two and a half games behind Orlando. The Hawks are now six behind the Bulls. Perhaps even more important is Atlanta is five games up on the Knicks with twenty-two games remaining. Also keep an eye on Philadelphia who has suddenly reached the .500 mark on the season.
