Atlanta Hawks Schedule in 2014 - 2015

The Atlanta Hawks season opener is against the Toronto Raptors. Game one of a new season helps to set the tone for the year and the Hawks have drawn an easy opening team. However, they won't be able to take it easy for long because they face the notoriously talented Spurs for their third season game. Home games are advantageous and Atlanta has a balanced mixture of home and away gams throughout the season. A noteworthy game will be in November when they face the Cavaliers with their newly returned King James. It should prove exciting since it's one of the earlier games in the season and people will be intrigued to see how well Lebron performs. One rough patch is going to occur in mid-January when they face four road games in five days. This will challenge them and help identify if they have a strong bench. Season ending matches against some quality teams will culminate with an away game versus the Chicago Bulls.

Atlanta Hawks Trivia

Atlanta Hawks History

The Atlanta Hawks had just settled into their new home in Atlanta when Ted Turner snatched up the opportunity to own the only NBA franchise in the Southeastern United States. He hired Hubie Brown, who was voted Coach of the year. A great coach was quickly followed by a great talent in Dominique Wilkins. While the Hawks were elite, they could never move past the semifinals of the Easter Conference playoffs. A Wilkins injury began the decade of mediocrity. In 2005 the Hawks saw an uptick after acquiring Joe Johnson. The team began to make it farther in the playoffs and had key victories in the following years, though not enough to secure the championship. Their only championship season was in 1958 when they were still located in St. Louis. Several stars have donned the red uniform over the years; Dikembe Mutumbo, Pete Maravich, Moses Malone, and Bob Pettit, to name a few.
