It’s a big Eastern Conference showdown on Friday night in Atlanta. The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to take on the Atlanta Hawks.
Both teams are fighting for playoff positioning right now so this is a huge game for both teams. This is the second match up of the year between the two teams. The Hawks won that match up 110-106.
The Cleveland Cavaliers once again look like they are the team that is going to come out the Eastern Conference come playoff times.
Right now they just trying to get by without Kevin Love. They are also trying to get their new guys integrated as they have signed Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut in the last week.
The Cavaliers are 7-3 in their last ten games. They are however coming into this game off a loss to the Boston Celtics, a game that took till the final seconds to decide.
The Cavaliers strength is on the offensive side of the ball. They average 110.9 points per game which is third best in the NBA. On the defensive side of the ball they give up 105 points which is 19th in the NBA.
For the Cavaliers to win they need to get off to the fast start and really push the pace in this game. The faster of pace this game is played at the harder the time it will be for the Hawks to keep up.
The Atlanta Hawks have had a very up and down season this year. One week they look like a top two seed in the Eastern Conference, and the next week they look like a team that is going to get a lottery pick.
They come into this game having gone 5-5 in their last ten games. The problems in their loses have been on the offensive side of the ball.
In four of those five loses they scored under 96 points. For a team that isn’t great on the defensive side of the ball they aren’t going to win many games only scoring 96 points.
For the Hawks to win this game they need to play well on the offensive side of the ball. The Cavaliers are going to get their points so they need to make sure they score too.
