Hawks fans have plenty to look forward to in the last three weeks of the season.

While the Atlanta Hawks look to be cemented into the 5th spot heading into the lottery the Dallas Mavericks are in free fall.

Golden child Luka Doncic had the Mavs in borderline playoff territory for much of the season but after trading away DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews, Dallas has been tanking hard.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, the Atlanta Hawks are slated to receive the Mavs pick if it falls outside the top five.  Until the last two weeks, this looked like a safe bet.

Current Bottom Ten

10. Lakers | 31-40

9. Wizards | 30-41

8. Pelicans | 29-42

7. Mavs | 28-42

6. Grizzlies | 28-42

5. Hawks | 24-48

4. Bulls | 20-52

3. Cavs | 18-53

2. Suns | 17-55

1. Knicks | 14-56

Rooting Interests

Hawks fans, we should be rooting for:

Dallas wins

Memphis losses

Pelicans losses

Wizards losses

We need Dallas to move up a few spots to increase our chances of keeping their pick.

The Hawks appear locked in at the 5th spot and have a rough schedule to end the season. I would not worry about the Hawks encroaching any teams above them.
