How they rank in NBA's Eastern Conference
5. Atlanta Hawks
Record against Boston: 0-2
The Hawks briefly had a better record than Orlando a couple weeks ago, which makes for an interesting race for home court in the first round. Franchise player Joe Johnson, who was handed an nine-figure-contract in the offseason, has been disappointing this year, averaging only 19 points and five assists when he's being paid like a superstar. Al Horford (16 points, 10 rebounds on 56 percent shooting) and Josh Smith (16.5 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks on 54 percent shooting) have been huge difference-makers for Atlanta. Is this the year the dangerous Hawks actually make a run?
