Atlanta Hawks Dallas Tickets
With the NBA preseason about to begin, let us take a look at the Atlanta Hawks upcoming game against the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airline Center. The Hawks will be hoping they can replicate last season’s form during this regular season, and the preseason games will give them the perfect opportunity to get back into the groove. The Hawks were Division champions last season and were the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. To see how the team is shaping up for the upcoming season, get Atlanta Hawks Dallas tickets and watch them take on the Mavericks, live.
Founded in 1946, the Hawks play in the Southeast Division of the NBA’s Eastern Conference. The franchise was formed as the Tri-Cities Blackhawks, before moving to Milwaukee, then St. Louis and finally to Atlanta in 1968. When they were placed in St. Louis, the Hawks won their first and only National Championship in 1958.
The previous season was an overall success for the Hawks. The team went on to win their first division championship since 1994 and it was their best finish to a season since they finished first in Eastern Conference during the 1993-1994 season. Considering the team had to compete with the dominant Miami Heat and talented Orlando Magic, it was a huge accomplishment.
The Hawks finished the regular season with a 60-22 record, which was a franchise record for most number of wins. As a result, they became the highest seeded team in the Eastern Conference and got home court advantage for the playoffs.
In the first round of the playoffs, the Hawks defeated the Brooklyn Nets 4-2, then swept aside the Washington Wizards with the same margin in the Conference Semi-Finals. The team played LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers in the Conference Finals, but were swept aside 4-0.
Prospects for 2015
The Hawks will look to bounce back from that disappointing defeat against the Cavaliers and start the new season on a strong note. With certain additions to the squad, they could very well go the distance in the playoffs, because the talent is still there.
The upcoming preseason will offer a glimpse into what can be expected from the Hawks this season. To catch them live in action, get your Atlanta Hawks Dallas tickets now.
