Atlanta Hawks Team Info
The Hawks have enjoyed a good amount of success since moving to Atlanta in 1969. In the 36 seasons of playing in Atlanta the team has advanced to the postseason 23 times. The greatest postseason game the Hawks have ever played has to be game 7 of the 1988 Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Hawks were carried throughout the season and the playoffs by superstar Dominique Wilkins. Wilkins was doing the same thing in the deciding game of this series and through three quarters he had scored 31 points. In the final 10 minutes the shootout between Wilkins and Larry Bird started. Bird scored nine points in the span of two minutes but Wilkins went on a run of his own and tied it up at 99 with 5:57 left in the game. The Bird went on to score the 11 to finish out the quarter and Wilkins matched him point for point until Bird hit a miraculous three over Wilkins that put his team up by three and Wilkins couldn't bring it back and the Hawks fell with a final score of 118-116. The shootout between the two superstars made the game one of, if not the, best postseason game of all time.“It was like two gunfighters waiting to blink,” said forward Kevin McHale who was covering Wilkins for most of the game.
In more recent memory, the Hawks could use a gunslinger like Wilkins. The team hasn't made the playoffs since the 1999 strike shortened season when they were booted out by the eventual Eastern Conference champion in four games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Since '99 the team has failed to make the playoffs in each of the five seasons and, in that span, has accumulated a record of 149-261 which is a winning percentage of .363. Last season the team didn't fare much better finishing 28-54 in a very weak Eastern Conference. The highlight of their season came when Bob Sura put up two straight triple doubles and got his third when he missed a layup on purpose and got his own rebound. The NBA went back and disallowed the rebound and ended his run at two.
