Greetings! The Atlanta Hawks take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday evening in a rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference Semifinals, and Justin Rowan of SB Nation’s Fear The Sword joins the program to preview the festivities. Episode 69 of the Locked on Hawks podcast includes the following:

  • It is Election Day but, don’t worry, Justin is Canadian
  • How have the Cavs looked thus far in 2016-2017? Cleveland is undefeated but are they living up to that bar on the floor?
  • Justin’s feelings on the previous edition of the Hawks (led by Horford and Teague) when compared to the current edition and how Atlanta matches up with Cleveland with Dwight Howard in the middle
  • Overarching thoughts on Dennis Schröder as a starting point guard and his face-off with Kyrie Irving
  • X-factors for Tuesday’s game
