Watch as the Atlanta Hawks look to spread their wings and soar over their Southeast Division rivals this season. New coach Mike Budenholzer has a sharp vision for his skilled Hawks and that is to be an attacking team that is proficient at both ends of the court. Budenholzer operates a team-oriented system, one in which the Hawks will flock together to succeed. The Hawks acquired Paul Millsap this offseason who is a tough post defender and is adapting well in Atlanta. DeMarre Carroll brings energy, is efficient with the ball, can rebound, and is a skilled defender as a wing player. While the Hawks may lack size, they are fierce, young, and have proven early in the season that they will strike back even if they are behind late in the game. Look for two-time All-Star Al Horford to carry his team of able hunters into the NBA playoffs.

Atlanta Hawks 2014 News and Updates
4/17/14 - The Atlanta Hawks should consider themselves fortunate they play in the Eastern Conference, as they sealed up the eighth playoff slot in the East while standing seven games under .500 on the season, and holding off the New York Knicks who made a late charge. The Hawks clinched their spot with a three game winning streak, including topping the #2 Heat over the weekend. However, some fatigue must have set in, as the Hawks were unable to stop Charlotte, losing 95-93 on April 14. Mike Scott led six Hawks who scored in double figures, combining 20 points with six boards; starter Louis Williams and reserve Shelvin Mack each tossed 13 points, while Elton Brand added a dozen points plus seven boards and three blocks.
4/9/14 - Hanging on to the eighth and final place in the Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Hawks did themselves a huge favor over the weekend, taking out the sliding Indiana Pacers 107-88 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Jeff Teague was the leading Hawk in scoring, zinging the Pacers for 25 points; while Pero Antic caused serious matchup problems for the Pacers’ Roy Hibbert, dropping 3 of 4 from three-point range en route to 18 total points. Paul Millsap also had a solid night, being responsible for 17 points and 11 boards. Shelvin Mack came off the bench to toss in 13 points and dish out seven assists.
4/1/14 - If the Atlanta Hawks aren’t careful, they could find themselves looking at the playoffs from the comfort of their homes, as the surging New York Knicks have pulled to within a game of the Hawks. While the Hawks won their last game 103-95 over the woeful Philadelphia 76ers, they have won just four times in their last 10 games. Against the Sixers, Paul Millsap was the stat leader, chalking up a double-double of 28 points and 17 rebounds, to go along with four assists and three steals. Louis Williams provided a key contribution off the bench with 22 points – including eight straight late in the final quarter – as well as five rebounds and five assists.
3/25/14 - Without Kyle Korver – out with back spasms – the Atlanta Hawks have dropped three straight games, at home to New Orleans and most recently Phoenix, around a losing trip to Toronto. Against Phoenix, the Hawks were led in scoring by two starters , Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll, who each had 19 points; Millsap also mixed in five rebounds, a pair of steals and another pair of blocked shots. Pero Antic contributed eight rebounds of his own along with a pair of assists and a pair of steals. The Hawks were unimpressive on the fast break, being outscored by the Suns in fast-break points, 21-8.
3/18/14 - After some struggles earlier in the season which saw the Atlanta Hawks nearly fall out of playoff contention, the Hawks have won their last four straight – three of these by a total of 12 points – including a 97-83 come from behind victory over Charlotte, who is just a game and a half ahead of the Hawks in the standings. Paul Millsap collected a game high 28 points for Atlanta, and center Pero Antic hit a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Elton Brand contributed seven boards and three blocked shots in the victory, as well. Off the court, it was announced that big man Al Horford’s torn pectoral muscle will not only not see any action for the rest of the season, he will also not play in the postseason this year.
3/13/14 - The Atlanta Hawks broke a six game losing streak with their first win of the month, a 112-110 victory over Utah in the team’s last stop on a trip from Boston to the West Coast. Guard Kyle Korver (whose string of games with at least one three pointer came to an end last week against Portland) led all scorers with 26 points for the Hawks, while Paul Millsap (like Korver, a former Jazz player) contributed 23 points to go along with eight rebounds. The Hawks used an 8-0 run to eke out the win over Utah, after falling just short a couple days earlier against the Clippers in Los Angeles.
3/5/14 - Having lost three straight and four of their last five, the Atlanta Hawks are hoping to get back to winning as they continue on a tough swing through the West, with four more games in five days. Despite having two players with more than 20 points (Jeff Teague with 29 and Mike Scott with 20) and five others in double figures, the Hawks were unable to hold off Phoenix, falling 129-120. Paul Millsap continues to miss time for Atlanta; even though he has accompanied the team on its road trip, the team has said there is no timetable for his return. Another injured Hawk, Pero Antic, was upgraded to day to day and has also accompanied the team.
2/26/14 - Last weekend the Atlanta Hawks stopped a tough losing streak over the weekend, defeating the New York Knicks 107-98 last Saturday. The Hawks did the job without the services of Paul Millsap, who suffered a right knee contusion in the loss to Detroit. Millsap is expected to miss two more games for the Hawks, according to coach Mike Budenholzer. Adding to the injury list are Hawks big men Pero Antic and Gustavo Avon, who have replaced Al Horford in the Hawks’ rotation.
2/21/14 - The Atlanta Hawks had a token presence on the floor in New Orleans for the NBA’s All Star Game, in the guise of forward Paul millsap, who played 15 minutes and collected six points, three rebounds and one assist in the East’s come from behind victory over the West. Atlanta did not get off on the right foot to start the second half of the season, falling to the Indiana Pacers 108-98. Kyle Korver led the Hawks’ scoring with 19 points, while Elton Brand (yes, he’s still in the league!) cleared eight boards.
2/6/14 - The Atlanta Hawks have dropped two straight of late – a home loss to the Indiana Pacers, snapping Indiana’s 12-game Philips Arena drought; and most recently, on the road at the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans used a strong fourth quarter, gaining a 25-13 run to knock off the Hawks, 105-100. With the loss of Al Horford a little over a month ago, the Hawks are scrambling to make up his production. Guards Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver, and forward Paul Millsap are among those who have stepped up in Horford’s absence.
1/31/14 - The Atlanta Hawks game against Detroit, originally scheduled to be played on January 29 but a casualty of the freak snowstorm that turned the city of Atlanta into a snow-covered parking lot, has been rescheduled to April 8, giving the Hawks a late-season home back-to-back slate. Closer in the schedule, though, the Hawks will try to ground the high-flying Indiana Pacers in a key Eastern Conference matchup on February 4.
1/21/14 - Revenge never tasted so sweet!

1/10/14 – The Hawks are one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference thus far; sitting third overall and second in the Southeast behind Miami. The last time the Hawks and Heat met, we witnessed an overtime thriller in Miami where the home team ultimately pulled away the win. A chance for revenge is right around the corner when the Heat visit Atlanta Jan 20. Hawks tickets for the game are averaging $215, about half the price tag of December 23 meeting at American Airlines Arena. One of just three teams in the East with a record above .500, the Hawks will have to finish out the season without forward/center Al Horford who is dealing with a torn pectoral muscle. One unique game on the Atlanta Hawks schedule comes in six short days when the team travels to London to take on the Brooklyn Nets at O2 Arena.
11/4/13 – Atlanta Hawks tickets are up 83% since last season, averaging $140 for a seat inside Philips Arena. If you can’t make every game this 2013-14 season, make sure to catch these must-see matchups: first, Atlanta vs. Detroit (11/20) for Josh Smith’s return. The mid-November game is one of the cheapest on the Hawks home schedule and features two teams who will be competing for a playoff berth come end-of-season. Another key matchup this season for the Hawks: Atlanta vs. Indiana in a first round NBA playoff rematch. The Pacers beat the Hawks in six in the Conference quarterfinals last year; the January matchup will be the fourth in a string of eight grueling Hawks games that month. Third, Atlanta vs. Milwaukee (3/13) for former Coach Larry Drew and Center Zaza Pachulia returns; the game against the Bucks is the second between the two teams this season and is averaging $99 (seventh cheapest). Perhaps the biggest game for the Hawks, comes end-of-season (4/2) against the Chicago Bulls. It’ll provide a good indication as to how ready Atlanta is heading into the playoffs. Entering the season Bulls vs. Hawks tickets for the April matchup are averaging $212, $3 less than the 2/25 games in Atlanta.
8/7/13 - After again crashing in the first round of the playoffs, the Hawks parted ways with coach Larry Drew and star forward Josh Smith this offseason. Smith will return to Atlanta for the first time, as a member of the Detroit Pistons, on 11/20. New coach and former Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer will be charged with bringing the Hawks to prominence in the Eastern Conference behind the efficient frontcourt of 2-time All-Star Al Horford and free agent acquisition Paul Millsap.
2012 - 2013 Season
4/1/13 - For the 6th straight season the Atlanta Hawks secure a spot in the NBA Playoffs. If the Playoffs started today, the Hawks would matchup against the New York Knicks, a team they’ll play two days from now at Phillips Arena. The matchup is the most expensive home game left on the Hawks schedule and is more than double the average price of the next most expensive game. If Atlanta wants to make a run deep into the Playoffs, they’ll need their big men Al Horford and Josh Smith to lead the way. Hawks playoff tickets went on sale to the general public this morning.
Atlanta Hawks 2013 - 2014 Season
Expected to be active at the NBA's trade deadline, the Atlanta Hawks made one minor deal, while retaining their leading scorer Josh Smith — despite leaguewide interest — for the stretch run. Currently the Hawks stand second in the Southeast Division, but well back of the pacesetting Miami Heat
, and in the lower half of the playoff chase in the Eastern Conference overall. In addition to Smith, Hawks offensive output comes from center Al Horford, the team's leading rebounder and shot-blocker; and point guard Jeff Teague, who paces the team in assists and steals; Kyle Korver also chips in with offensive contributions. Devin Harris, Zaza Pachulia, and DeShawn Stevenson provide added support off the bench. The team stands in the middle of the league in both points scored per game average, and points allowed per game, averaging just shy of 97 points per game while allowing just over 96. If the Hawks can keep winning, they will be in a solid position in the playoffs, where the Philips Arena crowds can cheer the home team deep into this season’s playoffs
Atlanta Hawks tickets at Phillips Arena average $50 in 2013, one of the best NBA tickets deals this season. By comparison, the NBA tickets average is $104. Hawks home games with the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, and Brooklyn Nets, however, average $205, $130, and $104. Popular games on the 2013 Atlanta Hawks schedule with cheap Hawks basketball tickets include the Dallas Mavericks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Portland Trail Blazers. Hawks tickets on the road average $97, almost double the price of admission in Atlanta.
