Rooting Interests: Jazz Can Help Hawks Clinch

Atlanta Hawks v Milwaukee Bucks

There’s not a lot of meaningful Eastern Conference action in the NBA tonight, but the Hawks do have a chance to clinch a playoff spot with some help.


Atlanta travels to Indianapolis for the fourth and final game of the season series with the Indiana Pacers.  Indiana currently sits four games ahead of the Hawks, but a win would keep the pressure on the third place Pacers.

The only other game of note takes place later when the Philadelphia 76ers travel to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz.  If the Hawks win, they can clinch a playoff spot with a Philadelphia loss, but the celebration likely wouldn’t begin until just before midnight Eastern Time.

Teams to root for:  Jazz
