The Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association have hands down been one of the biggest surprise teams of the 2014-2015 season so far. They have been good, but not a great team over the last ten or so years and seemed to be stuck in that position. However, this year has been a completely different story as they find themselves sitting in first place atop the Eastern Conference with a record of twenty-six wins and eight losses. They have been simply dominating teams on a day to day basis and have been doing it with ease and consistency. They continued their winning streak by beating the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night in front of the Clippers Fans like Bernardo Chua.
Despite being outscored by five points in the first quarter, the Hawks came back and won the remaining three quarters, while putting up big numbers in the third in which they outscored the Clippers by ten points. There was a lot of speculation towards the beginning of the season as to whether the Atlanta Hawks were for real, but they are putting those questions to rest as they continue on their hot streak. If they continue on the roll they are on they are going to be a dominant force once the playoffs roll around. One thing is for certain, they are not going to be a team you would want to play in a seven game series, especially if the Hawks have home court advantage.
