Two playoff hopefuls got toe to toe this Friday in an important matchup for both of these clubs, as the San Antonio Spurs take on the Atlanta Hawks at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
San Antonio Spurs
Realistically, even most Spurs fans would not have given their team much of a chance at winning this Southwest Division, but with the way things appear to be shaking out they may very well have a decent chance.
The Rockets have fallen apart, the Pelicans have not taken a step forward, and the Mavericks are not exactly lighting the League on fire either, so the Spurs have all the motivation possible in what many thought would be a forgotten season.
It is all about team effort for this Spurs team as well with 7 players averaging over 10 points per game and it is pretty much 8 players, as Derrick White is averaging 9.7 points per game. Keldon Johnson and Dejounte Murray were both coming into the season with a little bit of hype, but they have really grabbed a hold of their role in Pop’s system and they are both producing in the 2 and 3 role behind Demar Derozan.
The Atlanta Hawks have only won 1 of their last 5 games and finally that has been enough for them to lose first place in their division to the Charlotte Hornets. Their last game was a little bit unlucky against the Mavericks losing only by 1 point in a game where John Collins did everything in his power to get the Hawks over the line with 33 points.
The guy who does seem to be coming on in recent times is Kevin Huerter, who can seem like a bit of an afterthought with the star power that the Hawks have, but he has made big contributions this year including over 20 points in that last game against the Mavs.
There is some hope for this Hawks team, though, because if they can get healthy at the right time they may be able to spring an upset in the playoffs with their injury list being long with Bogdanovic, Hunter, Dunn and Rondo all looking to remain out for this one.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
I like this Spurs team longer term and I like them here against this young Hawks team. The Spurs play the more fundamental type of basketball which typically travels well on the road and I am a bit concerned with how often the Atlanta Hawks turn the ball over, as this Spurs team can hurt you on the break.
The Spurs are also getting two points here and that seems really decent, as I would have had the Spurs as a slight favorite in this spot. The early money is on Atlanta as well with 65% of the early tickets on the Hawks, so it might be worth waiting until closer to tip-off in order to get the best price here.
