Atlanta is buzzing with excitement! The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, and now move onto the Eastern Conference Finals. The Hawks will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in a seven game series starting on May 20th at Philips Arena. The games will then alternate between Philips Arena and the Cavaliers’ home court, Quicken Loans Arena.
What to Expect from the Hawks
Lebron James, star player of the Cleveland Cavaliers, is considered by many to be one of the best players in NBA history. He has even been called “the next Michael Jordan.” A talented team with such a talented star player may pose a problem for the Hawks. However, during the regular season, the Hawks defeated the Cavs three times, while only accepting defeat once. Believe it: the Hawks can beat the Cavaliers.
The Atlanta Hawks have a strong core of players without one particular player standing out as the star. This translates into amazing teamwork. The Hawks have the highest assist percentage in the NBA this year and rank fifth in passing percentage. The team does what it takes to win the game, no matter who has the ball and who scores.
Playoffs at Philips Arena
The Hawks start the Eastern Conference Finals at Philips Arena on Wednesday night. Being the higher seed gives Atlanta home court advantage for the first two games, and already fans are clamoring to buy tickets to see these historical games take place. Philips Arena will certainly be packed on Wednesday evening with two types of fans: those wishing to see Lebron James in action, and those wishing for Atlanta to make it to the NBA Championship.
