Atlanta Hawks: 100-1

We make a major jump into 100-1 land together with the Atlanta Hawks–one doesn’t feel nearly enough.
Ahead of Al Horford went with (another) torn pectoral last year, Mike Budenholzer’s birds were 16-13, looking like the third-best team in the East. Atlanta closed the year with a 22-31 mark out after dropping its best player.
Obviously, because the East was the East, the Hawks made the playoffs.
This year, Horford is looking nice in preseason play and healthy . Additionally, Paul Millsap is currently playing for a contract, Jeff Teague remains among the least valued talents of the league and Thabo Sefolosha is presently in town to deliver a few perimeter defense.
Nobody’s saying the Hawks are a bunch of world-beaters, but they feel like postseason locks. And they may finish among the conference’s top .
At the very least, they’ll jack a lot of threes (only the Houston Rockets attempted more in 2013-14) and also take care of the ball (Atlanta’s assist-to-turnover ratio had been next best at the East). That’s a recipe for success.
Don’t sleep on the Hawks.
