Can ATL Ever Beat CLE In Playoffs?

The Atlanta Hawks have been on the wrong side of history in their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Hawks are getting decimated in this series, but it has sadly – for Atlanta supporters – just part of their embarrassing history against the Cavs in the playoffs. The Hawks are winless in 11 franchise playoff games against the Cavaliers and have only covered once in that span.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 5-1 ATS in their past six games.
  • The Cavaliers are the first team in history to have back-to-back games of 20+ three-pointers in Game 2 and 3.
  • The UNDER is 8-3 in the Hawks past 11 games

The Cavs have averaged 108.9 points per game in the playoffs – nearly five points more than their season average – while only allowing their opponents to hit triple-digits twice in seven games.

The Hawks defense was one of the best in the NBA through the regular season, but has been steamrolled by the ridiculous Cavs’ scorers. Atlanta is allowing 116 per game in this series compared to their season average of 99.2.
