April 10, 2017 0

What a weekend for the Atlanta Hawks. Not only did the Hawks win three straight, they have the longest streak in the East making the postseason tenth straight years.

The Atlanta Hawks have clinched a spot in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, by virtue of Chicago’s 107-106 loss at Brooklyn earlier tonight. The Hawks have now made the Playoffs in 10 straight seasons, the longest active streak in the Eastern Conference, the second-longest in the NBA (San Antonio – 20) and the lengthiest in Atlanta Hawks history.

Additionally, the Hawks possess the third-longest active postseason streak in the four major professional sports, behind San Antonio’s 20 and the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 11-year run.

The Hawks (42-38), who have won three straight and are currently at fifth in the Eastern Conference, face Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Hornets at Philips Arena tomorrow (3:30 p.m.). Stay tuned to HHS1987 for more NBA news.
