The Hawks continue their fight in the Eastern Conference and getting a chance at the Nuggets here gives them a chance to continue their surge.
Atlanta currently sits in 4th and has it’s sights set on the 3rd spot.
Denver has had just too many injuries to overcome as this team as struggled with consistence.
When Gallinari went down, it was evident this Denver Nuggets team was going to have to overcome a lot.
Denver has completely slipped down the standings and now sits in 10th, 6 games off the pace of the 8th spot and is really in the danger zone now. They’ve dropped 2 in a row and any more losses can really knock them out of things.
The Nuggets are now 0-2 on their current 5 game road trip and with the way they’ve played on the road, things don’t bode very well for them going forward.
Denver has gone just 12-21 on the road and has really been a mess defensively. They have conceded nearly 104 points per game, but even that number doesn’t indicate how bad they’ve been.
The Nuggets road trip finishes off with Atlanta, Charlotte, and Cleveland.
The Hawks are finally catching fire.
After last season and their 60 wins, it seemed like this team would be right up there in the East competing for a conference title. That however has not been the case.
The Hawks have played recently how everyone thought they would play. Atlanta has surged up to the 4th spot, sitting in a tie with the Celtics. Atlanta is also just 0.5 game behind the Heat for the 3rd seed as well.
The Hawks won 3 in a row and get 3 more very winnable games in a row, all of which are inside Philips Arena. Atlanta will get this one against Denver and then follow it up with Indiana and Detroit (a team they just beat).
Atlanta has gone 21-12 at home this season.
